Visit Conax Technologies at Booth A-L67 at the 2018 Electrify Europe Conference

Conax is pleased to attend the 2018 Electrify Europe Conference in Vienna, Austria with thousands of innovators and thought leaders.

Eliminating premature sensor failures

Among the latest power industry technologies and solutions, we’ll be exhibiting our patented Spring Loaded Exhaust Gas Sensor. Standard exhaust gas sensors in 7F and 9F gas turbines are at risk for premature failure. As temperatures rise, the radiation shield and sensor sheath expand at different rates, forming a gap between the seat and the radiation shield and the stop on the sensor. The sensor vibrates and the tip eventually breaks, causing the sensor to fail and the gas turbine to trip.

Conax created the Spring Loaded Exhaust Gas Sensor, featuring a high-temperature compression spring that is inserted between two spacer tubes. The spring minimizes vibration, which means the sensor is less likely to fail and break. This solution has proven to increase sensor life and provide thousands of hours of operation without failures, preventing downtime and saving money. Click here to view a video demo.
