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.
Sciaky, provider of electron-beam additive manufacturing (EBAM) services, will start selling these machines commercially in September. The company has used its EBAM 3D printing technology for making very large, high-value, metal prototypes and production parts for aerospace and defense OEMs.
At this year’s Google I/O, the spotlight was pointed on gender inequality in the high-tech industry. Google has established a new initiative that it hopes will even out the playing field, Made w/Code. Part of this initiative will fund free online courses in basic coding.
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.
