Chris does a quick demo and rundown of a custom lovejoy coupling with embedded torque sensor. This is an excellent and minimally invasive method of adding torque monitoring to electric motors and all sorts of industrial equipment. The dynamic range and sensitivity of Suprock sensors allows the custom coupling to be built with equal or […]
Through a joint effort with EPRI and American Electric Power (AEP), we have installed our latest high temperature strain gage modules on high temperature boiler header piping to monitor cracking in real time. The high temperature gages are pre-installed on weldable shims for easy installation free of special adhesives and soldering in the field. The […]
Our EU partners at Haptica Milano are employing our wireless torque monitoring technology to help their client diagnose a torsional vibration issue on vehicle shafts and its relation to resonances in the body. Our wireless torque modules powered by our newest Equinox telemetry is capable of 31ksps of dynamic and static strain for measuring torsion, […]
Testing long distance data transmission of high-bandwidth sensor data @ beautiful Newfound Lake in New Hampshire. We tested two different antenna types, both were successful in transmitting data from 4 of our coaxial vibration sensors @ a bandwidth of 22kHz each, over a distance of 4.66 miles (7.5km).
The situation: Von Mises stress calculations on Hydro unit forced plant operators to run well below rated capacity of 57.5MW. Running at 55MW, the rotor was calculated to be exceeding the material limits of 8000psi shear and 13,333.33psi von Mises combined stress when running at capacity. The solution: live torque monitoring of the shaft (as […]
