On-Line Measurement of the Tip Clearance and Time of Arrival of a Bladed Disk of an Aircraft Engine
Safety and performance of the turbo-engine in an aircraft is directly affected by the health of its blades. In recent years, several improvements to the sensors have taken place to monitor the blades in a non-intrusive way.
Tip clearance - distance between the blade tip and the casing
Time of Arrival (ToA) - passing time at a known position of two consecutive blades
We recently visited ANIMMA conference which was held in the beautiful setting of Portorož, Slovenija. We presented our products together with our mother company Instrumentation Technologies that provides solutions for particle accelerators and industries.
