Complete servicing for any make of rotor
Our 50,000 square foot manufacturing plant in Turtle Creek, Pennsylvania is equipped with two heavy duty lathes and a complete compliment of milling machines, so we can confidently and competently handle any operation on any rotor of up to 100 tons.
A ready supply of retaining rings
To make sure your generator is back up and running efficiently as quickly as possible, we make sure we’re always well stocked with 18Mn-18Cr retaining rings to fit 1,000 different rotors.
Tooth-top cracking eliminated permanently
Tooth-top cracking under the retaining ring is a common problem. But Brush Aftermarket has devised a patented procedure that doesn’t just defer the issue, but permanently resolves it for the life of the rotor. We also offer NDE examination and complete wedge land repair solutions for the length of the rotor body.
From straight forward repairs to performance enhancements.
Our expert teams are highly experienced in the design, manufacture, maintenance and testing of brushless exciters and they can re-engineer components to improve performance. If you’re due an upgrade, we can now supply new brushless exciters to our clients too.Our services include:
Housing modifications reduce risks and improve operation
For every aspect of generator maintenance, our service is as thorough and well thought through as our approach. And we like to think our standard services are anything but standard, as they’re carried out with such precision and expertise. Services include:
End winding vibration resolution services
To expand our services, we’ve developed a series of patented retrofit solutions to end winding vibration that do not require a rewind of the stator. These options have been developed on a building block approach and we’ve been using them successfully since 1993.
Vibration monitoring systems
Stator winding vibration monitoring systems provide information on both electrically and mechanically inducted vibrations being experienced on the end windings. Depending on your set up, the systems can be configured to provide information at the generator itself or via continuous monitoring in the control room.
Brush Aftermarket U.S. has various balancing equipment whereby rotors can be tested against nominal speed.
Rotor Mass Limitations
In order to increase the operating life of machines and equipment, Brush Aftermarket offers a replacement parts service. We offer a wide variety of high quality parts for our own machines and from other manufacturers including:
Since it is important that your machine continues to operate properly, we advise keeping a supply of basic parts for your machine on hand. This can, in combination with a good maintenance program, considerably reduce the duration of production failure should a breakdown occur. All commonly used parts from Brush manufacturers are in stock in our extensive parts facility in the US. Parts can then be quickly delivered to the necessary location.
