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) […]
In critical aerospace applications, it is not uncommon to lose millions of dollars a year in wasted time and material whenever worn tooling or forming defects produce subpar fasteners. Keeping a close eye on machine components with our strain based die monitoring is a great way see these problems developing before a defective piece falls […]
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.
It’s alive, again
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.
