I am proud to say that Binsfeld products are successfully being used to solve costly maintenance issues plants endure.  Budgets are tight and companies are investigating any and all tools to reduce costs.  Binsfeld Engineering equipment  has proven to be very effective in this pursuit.   


If you have a good application or success story involving the TorqueTrak instruments that you would like to share in this newsletter, please send it to me for consideration.



Thank you.

Binsfeld TT10K System Uncovers Drive Gear Material Issue at Water Treatment Plant

A large urban city water treatment facility uses large power driven chain-linked scrapers, called "flights", to extract impurities (i.e. mud and silt) from each cistern as part of the water cleaning process.  The chain link torque imposed on the gear drives was causing premature breakage and plant shutdowns. 


 Binsfeld’s torque measuring devices are used in water treatment plants, helping cities improve life for its citizens.


Multiple Binsfeld TorqueTrak model TT10K's were used to measure equipment torque as flights move along various sections of the reservoir bottom.  


As a result of testing, the TT10K torque data found the current gear set material inadequate.  Stronger gear sets have been ordered to replace existing kit.    


The facility was able to solve an expensive and troubling maintenance issue.  The convenience of operation and application of TorqueTrak telemetry equipment, enabled a successful project completion.
