Self Aligning Rotators
Self Aligning Rotator Description
Self Aligning Rotators automatically adjust the roller housings to comply with any vessel diameters within a specified diameter range.
This type of rotator is designed to handle the change in vessel diameter, job to job. The roller housings which are hinged to the beds, open and close automatically, when the larger diameter vessels are loaded. The motor-reducer drive is given to both the 2 sets of rollers of the drive unit, to provide better traction to the vessel.
Depending on the workpiece thickness, an additional idle set is recommended for workpieces longer than 10-15 meters.
Under the frames, the bogie is driven by two sets of motor&gearbox that are working synchronized, to drive the units to move on rails.
Applications of Self-Aligning Rotators: Pipes, API pipes, boilers, heat exchangers, mounted vessels, pressure vessels, plant construction, pipeline construction, storage Tanks, water tanks, shipyards and ship components, pressure vessels robust steel construction, tanks, barrels burnishing and welding.
