Application specific solutions for Gas Turbine Monitoring.
Depew, New York, USA - IMI Sensors, a division of PCB Piezotronics, Inc. released a new "Combustion Dynamics Instrumentation" brochure designed to help gas turbine operators select the optimal pressure sensors and accessories for monitoring gas turbines. With the trend toward increased fuel efficiency and low NOx emissions, today's gas turbines operate more efficiently but have to be closely monitored and controlled to avoid combustion instability. This instability can damage components in the combustion chamber such as nozzles, baskets and transition pieces, as well as downstream components such as blades, resulting in avoidable downtime and loss of revenue.
The Combustion Dynamics Instrumentation brochure can be downloaded from the IMI-Sensors website through this link:
The new brochure lays out the three main applications for detecting and measuring combustion dynamics in gas turbines: Remote Sensors, Close Coupled Sensors, and On-Turbine Instability Sensors (OTIS). In the case of OTIS, IMI's Series 176 high-temperature pressure sensors (986F, 530C) are directly mounted at the gas turbine combustor. The brochure also includes IMI's full line of high-temperature accelerometers for vibration monitoring of gas turbines in heat environments of up to +1200°F (+649°C).
