With the development of modern industries, a need for new, innovative solutions for extreme temperature monitoring arises. Several industries, like mining and energy industries, often deal with high temperatures that are a significant factor in equipment deterioration and premature failure. Moreover, the current infrastructures used in these industries are weakened by the time of their installation and by the growing demands of the modern world. The development of fiber optic technology, like fiber Bragg grating sensors, have already proven to be valuable for temperature monitoring in harsh conditions.
The development of fiber Bragg grating sensors has become prominent for the monitoring of high temperatures in multiple industries due to the multiple benefits that FBG temperature sensors provide:
- High-temperature operation;
FBG sensors are able to withstand and operate stably under high temperatures. Additional coating can increase the stability of FBG temperature sensors and their temperature threshold. The max operating temperature of Optromix FBG temperature sensors is 150°C.
- Fast response time;
FBG temperature sensors are highly responsive and can be used for real-time temperature measurements.
- Small form factor;
Fiber Bragg grating sensors for temperature monitoring can be installed where the temperature could not be measured before. The small size of the sensors allows them to be installed in tight spaces, on moving parts of the equipment, etc.
Nowadays FBG sensors are used in a variety of different fields that require accurate and fast measurements. Depending on the nature of the application, FBG temperature sensors, FBG strain sensors, FBG pressure sensors, FBG displacement sensors may be utilized. The sensors are often accompanied by FBG interrogators to interpret the signals, and FBG multiplexers to create large monitoring systems with a big number of FBG sensors. The more complex the sensor system, the more intricate data can be obtained.
Optromix offers a wide range of FBG sensors, including FBG temperature sensors, as well as FBG multiplexers and FBG interrogators. If you would like to purchase fiber Bragg grating sensors, please contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org or +1 617 558 9858read more
