EPRI has released a report chronicling the history and development of Suprock high temperature strain gages in terms of thermal power plant applications. After hitting a limit with interconnect quality of silicon gage technology, new avenues were explored employing novel thin film construction techniques. The resulting gages have been operating successfully in various applications over […]
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 […]
Reduced staff and ever changing environment make it difficult to keep machines running optimally. One of the best ways to combat this problem is by monitoring important parameters such as vibration, pressure, temperature, etc. Machine health monitoring allows operators to better prioritize their time for a smoother running shop and less downtime. Our free DAQ […]
Quick update and demo of Acheron’s new remote sensor streaming option. It allows data from Suprock sensors to be streamed from anywhere in the world that has an internet connection. As always, Acheron software is free with purchase of Suprocktech sensors. Available in the latest version now.
