Removing a rotor from a large industrial generator
Weighing over 45,000 lbs. with a slim margin of error of only 3/4” in radial clearance, watch the Smith Services team use a custom 20’ long steel tube with a 1” wall thickness, weighing approximately 3,300 lbs. and two 50 ton cranes to float a 20’ rotor from a massive 32MW, 127,000 lbs. generator brought into the shop for inspection and repair.
