Monitor combustion dynamics. Keep gas turbines running.

4 ways to use pressure sensors and high temperature accelerometers to prevent combustion instability

Gas turbine engines are based on technological innovation in order to increase fuel efficiency. Burning a leaner flame keeps NOx emissions low but at the same time increases instability (combustion dynamics).

This instability can damage components in the combustion chamber as well as downstream components such as blades. This causes downtime and loss of production.

To avoid downtime, monitor your gas turbine with:

  • Remote sensors
  • Close coupled sensors
  • On-turbine instability sensors (OTIS)
  • High temperature accelerometers
