Borescopes optical probes / Optical probe
Main features / advantages
- Optical probe for combustion analysis
- Compact design and heat resistant
- Customized design
With precise knowledge of combustion processes, combustion behavior can be controlled so as to minimize undesirable phenomena such as knocking, pre-ignition and inefficient combustion. Optical investigations based on imaging techniques (such as the use of high-speed cameras) deliver informative and meaningful insights that are used (for example) as input for CFD calculations. Optomechanical components from Kistler are developed for minimally invasive use, and they are designed to withstand high temperatures and pressures. They only require small access bores into the combustion chamber; alternatively, existing accesses such as glow plug or cylinder pressure bores can be used.
