Measuring Thermoacoustics Phenomena in High Temperature Environments
Kistler measuring systems allow to measure thermoacoustics phenomena in harsh environments with extreme temperatures up to 700°C.
Applications include monitoring of gas turbines and other turbo machinery, R&D of continuous detonation engines, monitoring and control of pressure oscillations in pipes and acoustic thermometry. Kistler’s durable piezoelectric sensors based on proprietary PiezoStar® KI100 crystal material have been developed specifically for temperatures up to 700°C. KI100 crystals have no pyroelectric effect.
The fully differential measuring system is insensitive to electromagnetic interferences and even allows low level sound pressure measurements. Kistler’s modular portfolio comprises a great variety of sensors, including Ex-versions certified in accordance with ATEX directives. This guarantees an optimal solution for all common application scenarios.
