Torque Meter Systems

After purchasing the Indikon Company in 1999, Riverhawk has been manufacturing both standard and custom high performance Torque Meter Systems for turbomachinery across several different industries. In the early 2000’s, Riverhawk developed a specialized team to focus on improving the Torque Meter Systems products. Since then, we have been utilizing a robust and proven technology to supply the industry a variety of designs that can be adapted into most applications.

Torque Meter Advantages

  • Works with most available couplings on the market with minor modifications, eliminating the need for coupling redesign
  • Less complicated coupling design
  • Temperature compensation of the unique “in-shaft” electronics reduces error in readings due to temperature variations and temperature gradients across the coupling; bonded strain gauge bridges provide reliable linear torque signals
  • The use of two rotary transformers, one supplying power to the electronics and the other transmitting the signals from the shaft precludes any need for bearings or slip rings to be used with the system
  • Savings derived from increased machinery efficiency may generate a quick payback while providing insurance against failures in equipment being monitored
  • Reduced weight compared to other systems; minimal weight suspended by coupling due to strain gauge technology
  • Less sensitive to coupling guard deflections
  • Superior with respect to the effects on balance and natural frequency compared to other torque meter technologies
  • No gear teeth to generate windage and heat in coupling guard
  • High Accuracy up to 115°C
  • Torque Meter Systems Reliability
    • Redundant systems, Two Independent Systems
    • Specific calibration for each individual system
    • Customer support worldwide for installation supervision
  • Torque Meter Systems Service
    • Thorough calibrations for our torque meter systems
    • Quick turn around on in-house recalibration
