Rotech Systems

  • Founded in 1983 Rotech Systems Manufacture and supply worldwide, high quality, high reliability equipment for monitoring and measuring the speed, position and direction of rotating shafts

    Rotech Systems are the worlds leading manufacturer of high quality monitoring solution products with an unparalleled reputation for reliability, durability and quality.

    Major features are tough, strong, heavy duty construction, designed to operate and give years of maintenance free operation in even the harshest industrial environments, quarries, mines, etc. and simple, quick, installation.

    Rotech products can be used whenever information on  shaft speed, position, completed revolutions, etc. is required, for indication, control, interlocking, alarm initiation, etc.

    Main applications are in the bulk handling and processing industries. Protecting conveyors, elevators, screws, crushers, mixers, etc. anywhere were slowing down or stoppage will cause product spillage, blockage, etc. and incur downtime, lost production, cleaning up, spoilt product, etc.Equipment can give visual and/or audible alarms plus shutdown items of plant for a speed reduction of only 5%.

    Protects against conveyor belt slip, v belt slip, chain breakage, mechanical failure, stoppage, blocking, jamming, etc. Saving costly loss of production and down-time of plant!.

    Industries using Rotech products include: Food, Pharmaceuticals, Textiles,Glass, Grain, Power stations,Offshore, Fertiliser, Sand, Gravel, Roadstone, Cement, Aggregates, Coal, steel, Ore.

    General description

    The 'Rotech' range of shaft monitoring equipment is compromised of a range of motion sensors/encoders and associated speed relays.

    The heavy duty shaft sensor is installed on the end of the shaft being monitored and this sends an electrical signal proportional to the speed of the shaft to a suitable control unit.

    The control unit can be a 'Rotech' speed relay, a programmable controller, a computer, data logger device or other proprietary control equipment.

    The alarm level of the control unit is set to just below the normal running speed of the shaft. In the event of the shaft slowing below the set level, the control unit operates and can be connected to give an alarm to the operator and/or shutdown preceding items of plant.

    Advantages of 'Rotech'

    'Rotech' heavy duty motion sensors and encoders combine many unique design features to give the customer:

    • Simple installation
    • High performance
    • High reliability
    • Price benefits.
