INSTRUMENTATION OVERVIEW

The optimisation of aero thermal performance requires an understanding of the stress, strain and vibration imposed on gas turbine blades, vanes, discs, casings and fabrications. Rotadata has developed special techniques such as thermal spray and procedures to apply high temperature strain gauge sensors and wiring onto static, rotating and reciprocating components. The instrumentation can be designed to operate at temperatures in excess of 1,000C, and at rotational speeds in excess of 130,000 revolutions per minute.

Rotadata has over 40 years of in-house experience of instrumentation for turbomachinery to rotating and static parts and of a variety of sensors such as thermocouples, strain gauges , accelerometers, kiel measurement probes and their lead out wiring/tubing, for a whole range of pressure, temperature, environmental and high speed components located in aero engines, gas turbines, development and test rigs, wind tunnel models, automobile and marine engines, compressors and turbo chargers.

Rotadata has a broad range of gas measurement rakes and gas sampling probe designs that have been proven in application by the world's leading research and development teams for over 40 years. Our experienced technicians continue to service, overhaul and calibrate these executive components to support our clients in their development programs.

Rotadata offer Uniform Crystal Temperature Sensors installation and removal services. Our technicians have been recognised as conducting installations to the highest quality standard.

"Rotadata are the first installer to obtain Platinum Level Certification worldwide" - Anastasia Thomas - LG Tech Link Global.

Our skilled technicians work closely with Rotadata customers to ensure all aspects installation comply with the most stringent of aero-space standards being provided as routine.

We have successfully attached sensors to engine parts in the most harsh of environments including automobile engine cylinder heads, high speed turbochargers, rocket and missile components, power, industrial and aero engine gas turbines and combustors, railway carriage and locomotive stock, hydro power generators and a variety of heaters and coolers used in the power generation and petro chemical industries.
