Coronavirus Pandemic

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, please note that our facilities are fully operational. We have excellent disease containment procedures in place and do not have any reported infections nor symptoms ([Updated:] as of 2020-Apr-27.)

We will delay examining tools for repair for 48 hours after receipt to allow the fragile viral structure of any residual affected surfaces to break down, reducing our exposure risk. We will notify any customers receiving shipments from us if any infections occur on our premises.

Introducing The µCAT Measuring Head

While our SCAT and LCAT measuring heads can be used with a wide range of turbine brush-seal grooves, the latest µCAT ("mu-CAT" or "micro CAT") fits can fit where the others can't. The latest turbines for power generation being developed include stages with very small radial clearance. The µCAT can fit in the same width slot as the SCAT (0.500") and measure radial clearances from 0.200" to 0.250".
