Cutsforth introduces new shaft grounding system

Building on the success of its EASYchange Online Removable Brush Holder, Cutsforth Inc. has recently introduced an innovative dual Shaft Grounding System that maintains lower voltage than OEM solutions and offers universal mounting capability and system redundancy. The system is designed to work in dirty and non-filtered air environments, and can be used in a wide variety of power plant and industrial settings.

Cutsforth has designed its Shaft Grounding System to offer turbine generator operators affordable and effective bearing protection with system maintenance that can be performed, in most cases, without shutting down the generator.

Cutsforth’s unique mounting elbows adapt to the OEM frame providing installation flexibility. To maintain lower shaft voltage, Cutsforth uses a dual, redundant system featuring both copper grounding ropes and carbon brushes.
