Press Release Summary:
Used to monitor rotating shaft alignment and axial position, PRS05 Senturion Proximity Probe is constructed with bobbin expansion chamber and wire strain relief techniques for high-temperature operation. Construction also includes glass-filled PPS bobbin case, rated to 300Â°C, resistant to oil and chemicals. Offering 0-5 mm non-contact measurement range in 12 mm tip (M18 body) configuration, probe maintains measurement error of less than 5% over full range.
Original Press Release:
New Eddy Current Probe is Capable of Operating to 240°C
Designed to be the most robust available, Sensonics range of Senturion Proximity Probes has recently been extended to include a new instrument capable of operating to temperatures of 240°C.
Used extensively throughout industry to monitor rotating shaft alignment and axial position, particularly on steam and gas turbines, centrifuges and pumps, Sensonics proximity probes provide a range of non-contacting measurement configurations and comply with the API 670 standard.
Available in a selection of body and cable lengths, the new PRS05 model from Sensonics offers a 0 to 5mm measurement range in a 12mm tip (M18 body) configuration and operates above the range of standard probes, which can experience excessive drift where temperatures exceed 150°C and typically will be manufactured in materials only suitable for occasional operation up to 200°C. Temperatures in many applications can rise above this 200°C ceiling for long periods at a time in the locality of the probe; during turbine run up where steam leaks are prevalent, it is key the measurement accuracy is maintained for both thrust and shaft vibration measurements as the turbine thermal characteristics stabilise. The new PRS05 solution maintains a measurement error of less than 5% over the full working temperature range.
Rugged and reliable, the new probe incorporates a glass filled PPS bobbin case rated to 300°C, which is both oil and chemical resistant. A bobbin expansion chamber and wire strain relief techniques for the cable interface are just two of the design enhancements incorporated to achieve the 240°C rating. The instrument is supplied with a standard 0.5m of high temperature PTFE cable and is used in conjunction with a coaxial extension cable, supplied as a tuned system with a driver unit
Other instruments in the standard Senturion range include straight mount, reverse mount and disc probes offering measurement ranges up to 25mm. There is an extensive selection of ancillary items additionally supplied by Sensonics; these include brackets, glands and housing for probes and drivers. The company also provides an advice, installation and commissioning service.
