Dr. Suprock demonstrates our high-temp strain gages’ remarkable stability at extreme temperatures (1,200°F) The max constant operating temp of our gages is currently 1800°F/980°C. Even better, this stability comes with supersonic frequency bandwidth, useful for gas turbine combustion dynamics, HRSG monitoring, boiler pipe crack monitoring, etc. These strain gages can now be “printed” onto metal […]
We would like to extend a thank you to Harold Breitbach of Energiforsk Thermal Engineering Research Institute for including our TDMS system in their report about torsional vibrations in nuclear steam turbine applications. “Vibration problems in nuclear power plants can originate from different sources. One of these is torsional vibrations in shaft trains, which have […]
Recently we helped out our neighbors to the north with Hydro TG torsional monitoring in the most prestigious powerhouses in North America. Our friends at OPG were interested in monitoring TG performance and civil structure performance on the Niagara Sir Adam Beck plant. The installations were performed in conjunction with Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) […]
Chris shows off the Suprock Technologies booth at the EPRI Turbine Generator User’s Group Meeting in Savannah, GA 2019. Our usual turbine monitoring systems are supplemented by a host of predictive maintenance and frequency analysis capabilities, with upcoming integration into SCADA and data acquisition systems.
Our TDMS torsional vibration system has been featured in thus month’s EPRI Journal. It outlines how our data from our sensors has helped Duke Energy establish a more comprehensive plan for their upcoming upgrade at Bad Creek Pumped Storage Station. “By using the sensors, we’ve identified frequencies of concern that indicate torsional vibration,” said Duncan.
