IMI Sensors Announces New Combustion Dynamics Instrumentation Brochure


Features Application - Specific Solutions for Gas Turbine Monitoring



DEPEW, NY - IMI Sensors, the world's largest manufacturer of industrial vibration monitoring instrumentation, such as accelerometers, vibration transmitters and switches, announces the release of a brand new Combustion Dynamics Instrumentation brochure highlighting application-specific solutions for monitoring gas turbines.  The brochure features sensor placement illustrations and is 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 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).

 

The Combustion Dynamics Instrumentation brochure as well as additional information about sensors for gas turbine monitoring is available from: https://www.imi-sensors.com/GasTurbineMonitoring.aspx.  Please direct all technical inquiries to Eric Yax, Director of Sales and Marketing - Energy Division, phone: (716) 684-0002 extension 2377 or email eyax@pcb.com.
