Our patented Spring Loaded Exhaust Gas Sensors eliminate premature sensor failures

Standard exhaust gas sensors in 7F and 9F class turbines are at risk of premature failure due to vibrations caused by gas flow velocities, input vibrations and thermal expansion mismatch.

Conax Technologies’ exclusive Spring Loaded Exhaust Gas Sensors are specially designed to withstand these vibrations and avoid premature sensor failures.

Our patented sensors have a high temperature compression spring that’s inserted between two spacer tubes. The spring dampens the vibration and keeps the temperature sensor tip seated within the radiation shield. With this increased stability, the sensor tips won’t break. So turbines run longer without the risk of premature sensor failure.
