IMI Sensors offers Series 176 high-temperature pressure sensors for gas turbine monitoring. When directly mounted to a gas turbine’s combustor, the sensors provide consistent combustion dynamics data monitoring to measure combustion instability to prevent turbine damage and downtime. IMI's Series 176 sensors detect and measure dynamic pressure and combustion instability in high heat environments up to 986°F (530°C). Sensors are certified for use in hazardous areas and are suited for gas turbine monitoring with ranges from 20 (dynamic) to 400 (static) psi (1.4 to 27.6 bar). By mounting the sensors to the combustor, turbine operators receive critical diagnostics and part fatigue analysis and can continuously monitor and control emissions. Operators also save time during combustion inspections and overhauls from the elimination of tubing and a purging system. Features include auto-tuning and online diagnostic monitoring.
