Conax receives European patent

Spring-Loaded Exhaust Gas Sensors Reduce Premature Failure in Standard Exhaust Gas Sensors

Conax has developed the solution

Conax Technologies has received a European patent for Spring-Loaded Exhaust Gas Sensors. Our patented sensors provide the solution to standard exhaust gas sensors in 7F and 9F class turbines that fail prematurely due to vibrations caused by gas flows.

Already patented in the US, Conax Spring-Loaded Exhaust Gas Sensors have a high temperature compression spring that is inserted between two spacer tubes to dampen vibrations and keep the temperature sensor tip seated within the radiation shield.

Available exclusively from Conax

Conax’s Spring-Loaded Exhaust Gas Sensors are interchangeable with OEM parts and tested to OEM specifications.

When used in 7F and 9F class turbines, these sensors have proven to significantly increase sensor life and provide thousands of hours of field operation without failures. In addition, these exclusive Conax sensors:

  • Are interchangeable with OEM parts
  • Have been tested to OEM specifications
  • Significantly increase sensor life

Industrial Heating’s Economic Indicators at Highest Levels In A Year

For 15 months in a row, Industrial Heating’s monthly economic indicators have been over 50. All four index numbers were over 56, the highest levels since March 2017.

February 2018 Index Numbers:

  • Change in number of request for quotes from Dec. to Jan.: +60.5
  • Change in number of orders from Dec. to Jan.: +56.2
  • Change in backlog from Dec. to Jan.: +57.2
  • Expected change in the health of the industry through Feb.: +60.5

What do the numbers mean?

Index numbers reflect the changes that occur when experienced companies compare their January 2018 business levels to their December 2017 levels. A number over 50 means increased activity or growth. Conversely, a number below 50 means less activity or growth.

As a supplier of vacuum and pressure seal fittings and feedthroughs, as well as temperature sensors compliant with AMS 2750E standards used in the furnacing and heat treating industries, we’re encouraged by the latest economic indicators.
