Case Study

2300K Gas Turbine Temperature Probe

Cambridge Aerothermal’s flagship technology (The Sonic Probe) is a new kind of thermometer which can be used to measure gas temperature in the extremely harsh conditions found in a gas turbine engine combustion chamber.

The technology has been developed in partnership with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, for use in their combined cycle gas turbine engines.

The Sonic probe is capable of continuous gas temperature measurements well in excess of 2300K. The probe can operate in high pressure environments, and within high gas velocity streams. Several probe tests have been performed at 2300K, 20Bar total pressure, and Mach 0.4 gas stream velocity. A typical total temperature measurement uncertainty of ±1% is achieved.

Sonic probes can be developed/designed/supplied on request.
