  • Prime Photonics to Exhibit at Apex Users Conference

    January 20, 2017 (Blacksburg, VA) – Prime Photonics will be exhibiting at the 2017 Apex Turbine Testing Technology User Conference, February 27-March 2 in Atlanta, GA, at the Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel. At the conference, Prime Photonics and Apex will be demonstrating their integrated non-intrusive stress measurement system (NSMS) comprising industry leading FOCIS™ hardware and sensors and user-friendly BT Blade Timing analysis software. Relying on non-contact optical sensor technology, the integrated product provides high quality vibratory analysis for gas turbines and other rotating equipment for diagnostics, design validation and equipment health monitoring applications.

     
  • Prime Photonics Presents at EVI-GTI/PIWG Conference 2016 in Berlin, Germany

    September 28, 2016 (Berlin, Germany) – Today at the Gas Turbine Institute (GTI) 2016 EVI-GTI and PIWG joint conference on Gas Turbine Instrumentation in Berlin, Germany, Malcolm Laing, Director of Products for Prime Photonics, made the presentation “Hot section demonstration of an uncooled multi-function blade tip clearance and timing sensor”. In the talk, Mr. Laing discussed a recent hot section engine test in which Prime Photonics performed Blade Tip Timing and Blade Tip Clearance measurements. The Prime Photonics FOCIS™ optical probes were installed post-combustor and did not require cooling during operation in the extremely hot turbine section of the engine.
