Sensors for Industrial Combustion Systems

ThermIQ® high-temperature sensors for industrial combustion systems leverage Sporian’s core technologies to address industrial gas turbines, reciprocating engines, process furnaces, supercritical boilers, and other high-value fired assets. Sporian can support a range of compressor and combustion control development efforts for OEMs, control integrators, and process-facility engineering firms.

These sensors are in late-stage development, and Sporian is seeking partners to help prove the product in operational environments.

High-Temperature Capacitive Gas Pressure Sensor Image

Capacitive Gas Pressure Sensor

The ThermIQ industrial gas pressure sensor is a high-bandwidth capacitive pressure sensor capable of operating to 850°C. Designed for advanced compressor and combustion control, the product enables improved fuel efficiency in industrial turbomachinery, process furnaces, and other fired assets. Precursor sensors with very low bandwidth have been tested at 1,100°C. The present model, currently in development, offers considerably greater bandwidth and will be operable up to 1,200°C.

High-Temperature Resistive Gas Flow Sensor Image

Resistive Gas Flow Sensor

The ThermIQ resistive flow sensor is a gas flow sensor for combustion and process control capable of operation up to 900°C. These sensors are ideal for hot, compressed gas flows, and can improve fuel efficiency and availability in industrial turbomachinery, furnaces, and reaction equipment.
