Turbines & Generators

Turbines and generators are at the heart of all electric power plants. Boilers typically feed steam to the turbine causing it to rotate at high speeds. The turbine is mechanically coupled to the generator that produces the AC power.

Electro-Sensors' Speed Switches and Vibration Monitors are used on Turbines and Generators to monitor critical speed and vibration levels, and guard against slowdown or stoppage that can result in costly process downtime, machine damage, and material waste. Ratemeters and Tachometers are commonly used in this type of application to display the RPM of the pump.
