176 high-temperature pressure sensors detect and measure dynamic pressure
phenomena and combustion instability in the extreme heat environments (+986F,
+530C) generated by today's gas turbines. These sensors are also ATEX and CSA
certified for use in hazardous areas. The Series 176 high-temperature pressure
sensors are ideally suited for gas turbine monitoring with sensitivities to 17
pC/psi (2.5 pC/kPa) and ranges from 20 psi (140 kPa) dynamic to 400 psi (2760
By mounting the Series 176 high-temperature pressure sensors to
the combustor, gas turbine operators can rely on critical diagnostics, part
fatigue analysis and the ability to continuously monitor and control emissions.
Operators also save time during combustion inspections and overhauls due to the
elimination of tubing and a purging system. The high frequency capability of
the Series 176 sensors enables the use of auto-tuning and on-line diagnostic
monitoring systems. These sensors also provide an output that can easily
connect to legacy combustion dynamics monitoring systems.
On Memorial Day, Americans remember the sacrifices the US armed forces have made, and continue to make, in service to the country. All of us should also consider the developments in technological capabilities and equipment over the years that contribute to the success of our military operations.
In order to keep in line with safety protocols, industrial networks need to be filtered in a semantic way so that only information related to diagnostics is flowing back to the vendor and that any communications that could be used for remote machine operations are suppressed.
Advanced visualization can depict an entire plant in motion, while also detailing an individual workstation. Individual products can be rendered different for each discipline involved — marketing, engineering, or suppliers.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
