economical marine&industrial engine installation/shaft alignment

Post by AidAnt »

The AidAnt universal adjustable chock are mounted underneath piston engines, e-motors, pumps, auxiliaries, shaft bearings and many more applications where rotating equipment is involved and mounting needs to be done.
This solution has proven to significantly reduce the costs of initial installation and realignment during the life time of a component, compared to the use of steel liners, grouts and shimming.

The advantages are the absence of curing time, as with epoxy resin or grout chocks, it eliminates the trial and error alignment process characteristic for the “mill and shim” method and provides adjustability during the life cycle of the machinery. Due to these advantages it is used in many different industries like Marine, Offshore, Oil and Gas and has the approval from many global and local OEM's.

The AidAnt universal adjustable chock features and benefits:
- Soft Foot correction (eliminates component deformation)
- self-explanatory product
- no special installation skills required
- re-adjustable
- eliminate on-site machining
- eliminate curing time (as is the case with grouting /epoxies)
- re-usable
- self levelling
- circular adjustment holes (easy adjustment)

I moved your post over to the Trading Post as it is better suited for this area.

But yes, it is an excellent product, we have many on board my ship,the only comment is that after a year or two of service the rust gets to them and can sometimes be hard to "bring back to life".
