Critical feedback on gas turbine valve status

The abundance of shale gas has increased demand for gas turbines throughout the world. To address demand, gas turbine manufacturers are not only building more turbines, but designing them to operate more efficiently.

Controlling valve performance is essential for improved turbine efficiencies. As valves regulate the flow of fuel throughout the different components of a gas turbine, the accurate monitoring and controlling of flow from these valves enables turbines to operate more efficiently with minimal wasted energy.
 
LVDT Linear Position Sensors serve as the position feedback device that provides valve position measurements to ensure proper turbine operations.  
 
Download the white paper from Macro Sensors that discusses why LVDT Linear Position Sensors are preferred over other sensing technologies to provide critical feedback on gas turbine valve status.
