Blade health monitoring (BHM) enables users in the propulsion and power turbine industry to operate their machines with higher reliability, increased safety and lower ownership costs. Prime Photonics BHM system integrates FOCIS™ blade sensors (single point and line probe configurations) with advanced signal processing techniques to provide superior BHM data:
- Foreign object damage (FOD) detection
- Automatic blade identification
- Blade ‘fingerprint’ tracking
- High cycle fatigue (HCF)
- Vibrational mode analysis
The unique nature of the Prime Photonics probe design, coupled with the novel approach to algorithm development distinguishes our BHM system from the competition. Prime Photonics makes use of the entire blade signal, enabling blade identification and blade damage detection that exceeds the damage threshold capability of any other BHM system.
