Precision Water Level (PWL): a highly accurate system designed to quickly determine level or flatness. Fundamentally, the PWL saves time while providing the highest accuracy among leveling systems. It has become popular with engineers and technicians because it:

    • Reduces large leveling project times by up to 80% by greatly reducing the time between making adjustments and obtaining a new set of measurements
    • Is very easy to use and requires minimal training
    • Does not require line of sight
    • Includes its own power and lighting (PWL-1AA and PWL-1AB models)
    • Is extremely accurate (the High-End Kit is accurate to +/- 0.0001 inches at up to 200 feet or +/- 2.5 µm at up to 61m in controlled conditions that allow for measurement repeatability; the Standard Kit is accurate to +/- .0002 inches)
    • Is quick to setup
    • Is portable
    • Allows new readings to be taken off of the same reference point after adjustments are made to the surface(s) being measured
    • Is intuitive, allowing the user verify the accuracy of the tool or of individual measurements

Concentricity Alignment Tool (CAT): manufactured by EDS Measurement Systems, Inc. in Rochester, NY, this tool is used to concentrically align turbine diaphragms to the shaft of the turbine. The primary benefits are accuracy and time savings, which can amount to days or weeks over previous alignment methods. For more information, visit our CAT page or EDS Measurement Systems’ CAT page.

Electronic Adjustable Measuring Parallels (EAMP): manufactured by Equipment Development Services in Schenectady, NY, this tool is used to measure gaps or openings that are deep and therefore are beyond the range of calipers and telescoping gauges. They can also be used where it is physically impossible to use other measuring methods due to space limitations. The measuring method is similar to conventional standard machinist sliding parallels. For more information, visit our EAMP page.

Tightwire Alignment Tool Kit (TATK): manufactured by Equipment Development Services in Schenectady, NY, this tool is used to align diaphragms utilizing the tight wire technique. For more information, visit our TATK page.
