At the conference, Prime Photonics and Apex will be demonstrating their integrated non-intrusive stress measurement system (NSMS) comprising industry leading FOCIS™ hardware and sensors and user-friendly BT Blade Timing analysis software. Relying on non-contact optical sensor technology, the integrated product provides high quality vibratory analysis for gas turbines and other rotating equipment for diagnostics, design validation and equipment health monitoring applications.
September 28, 2016 (Berlin, Germany) – Today at the Gas Turbine Institute (GTI) 2016 EVI-GTI and PIWG joint conference on Gas Turbine Instrumentation in Berlin, Germany, Malcolm Laing, Director of Products for Prime Photonics, made the presentation “Hot section demonstration of an uncooled multi-function blade tip clearance and timing sensor”. In the talk, Mr. Laing discussed a recent hot section engine test in which Prime Photonics performed Blade Tip Timing and Blade Tip Clearance measurements. The Prime Photonics FOCIS™ optical probes were installed post-combustor and did not require cooling during operation in the extremely hot turbine section of the engine.
