NewTek Customizes the Mounting Features of Its LVDT Linear Position Sensors and LVRTs to Fit into Existing Footprint of Steam Turbines
By: NewTek Sensor Solutions
As the LVDTs and LVRTs are often exposed to high vibrations on the steam turbines, NewTek welds the stainless-steel blocks and flanges to the sensors so footing remains rugged. In addition, some linear position sensors are customized with threated connectors for long-term performance in the high-vibration environments of the turbine. Other mounting blocks or methods might become loose over time and compromise measurement quality.
AC-operated LVDTs and LVRTs are the only technologies that can survive steam exposure with high temperatures. For example, NewTek's High-Temperature HATR-750 Series (https://www.newteksensors.com/
NewTek also customizes mounting feet for sensors used in subsea applications for structural monitoring. For more information, refer to the NewTek website https://www.newteksensors.com/
