Testing our high-temp strain gage on a cantilever beam @ 1000°F. Measurements are proving stable at these temperatures for extended periods of time. Looks like it is ready for prime-time in the field. Practical applications include boilers, aerospace, crotch weld crack propagation, steam valve monitoring, direct bearing health monitoring, etc.
The Issue: Emergency backup oil pump system failures routinely cause turbine-generator losses in excess of $20 million dollars. Traditional EBOP testing methods are difficult to set up, leaving room for error and putting the test at risk. Customer needed an easier, more repeatable test to help prevent catastrophic bearing failure during outages. The original test […]
