High-temperature pressure sensors

  • 24-Nov-2010 02:40 EST

When directly mounted to a gas turbine’s combustor, IMI Sensors’ Series 176 high-temperature pressure sensors provide 24/7, consistent, reliable combustion dynamics data monitoring. The pressure sensors detect and measure dynamic pressure phenomena and combustion instability in the extreme heat environments (+986°F) generated by gas turbines. The sensors are ATEX and CSA certified for use in hazardous areas. The units feature sensitivities to 17 pC/psi and ranges from 20 psi dynamic to 400 psi static.

The fusing of emerging technologies from the aerospace materials sector and biological sciences are now, for the first time, heading toward the prospect of growing parts, systems, and, ultimately, perhaps whole aircraft.
NRL scientists have demonstrated metallic spin filtering at room temperature using ferromagnet-graphene-ferromagnet thin film junction devices.
Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
Researchers from the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory's Optical Sciences Division and Material Science Division have detected acoustic emissions from cracks in riveted lap joints using a distributed feedback fiber laser-acoustic emission sensor.
