Gas Turbine Monitoring

airsonic with probe fixed no markCombining our AirSonicAir Mass Flow Measurement System with the normal DCS data available from the OEM creates a very granular performance model of your Gas turbine.

The measured air mass flow rate completes the heat and mass balance, allowing the end user to quickly locate performance issues, quantify in real dollars the effects of repairs, and optimize everything from inlet cooling, water washing, combustion tuning, and emissions.

We will interface with your existing historian (Aspen, PI, Wonderware, etc) or your existing performance monitoring solution. We specialize in custom software integration to make our information seamless to your existing processes.
