In a few short weeks, Conax will be attending the 7F Users Group Annual Conference in Schaumburg, Illinois. During the event’s vendor fair May 21st, Conax will be at Booth 32 exhibiting our patented Spring Loaded Exhaust Gas Sensors.
Conax Technologies designed these exclusive sensors to solve the problem of premature failure experienced by standard exhaust gas sensors in 7F and 9F class turbines.
As temperatures rise, the radiation shield and sensor sheath expand at different rates. A gap forms between the seat in the radiation shield and the stop on the sensor, causing the sensor to vibrate due to gas flow velocities and input vibrations from the turbine.
The tip of the sensor then breaks, causing the sensor to fail and the gas turbine to trip.
Conax Spring Loaded Exhaust Gas Sensors have a high temperature compression spring that is inserted between two spacer tubes. The spring dampens the vibration and keeps the temperature sensor tip seated within the radiation shield. The sensor tips won’t break, so turbines run longer without the risk of premature sensor failure.
If you’ll be attending the conference, stop by Booth 32 on Tuesday, May 21st to see our patented solution. For more information on this year’s event visit http://www.powerusers.org/our-groups/7f-users-group/7f-annual-conference-2019/.
