RPM record broken – Micro Impellers

The CapaciSense Tip Clearance monitoring system has achieved a new record, monitoring impeller tip clearances accurately in real time at speeds of over 180’000 revolutions per minute.

The record was set not in the laboratory but in the field on one of our valued customers micro turbo chargers. With blade thickness of approximately 1mm and less the fact that a clean blade passing signal was obtained at these rotational speeds is even more impressive and demonstrates the capabilities of our electronics and market leading bandwidth.

The system in this case also used our unique non-flow disturbance probes. Meaning there is no impact on the flow created by the mounting of the probes as they are formed during installation to exactly match the contours of the shroud.
