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 […]
Modern grid issues, old age and flex-ops has brought numerous new problems to the hydropower industry. One of these is generator rim float. Hydroelectric assemblies are rather stout and can run with minor float issues but as the problem worsens it can lead to an irregular air-gap, key fretting, accentuated magnetic forces between the […]
A revolutionary atomic deposition manufacturing process has allowed Suprocktech to increase high-temp capability of our high temp strain sensors from 1500°F to 3100°F, opening up a new world of opportunities in the power, transportation and aerospace industries. Details to follow.
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) […]
