Generator Rotor

Location: Eagan, Minnesota, United states

Product: 15 OT Rollers with Accu-Roll Type C

A customer was in need of a moving solution to install/remove 70,000 lb. generator rotors.  Hilman was able to design and engineer a solution that allowed them to move the rotors in and out safely and with ease.  

We designed and installed 15 ton OT (Oversized Top) rollers onto a custom fabricated cart.  The cart was designed with space to house hydraulic cylinder pumps for easy lifting.  Tapered Accu-Roll was added for use on the channel track for extra guidance of moving the rotors in and out.
