Problem: 580 MW generator replacement.
Solution: Use 1 1/4" Maxi-Bolts.
When generators need to be replaced, GE and Westinghouse go to Maxi-Bolts. They are looking for the characteristics of a cast-in-place bolt in a post-installed anchor. The anchor must be able to withstand the vibration and cyclic action that a generator produces. The large loads that are produced by this action usually require the use of 1-1/4" Maxi-Bolts. This is the largest size we make, with an allowable load in excess of 50 Kips/Bolt.
