The Vectoflow exhibition at the ASME TurboExpo in Oslo was a resounding success! Thank you to all our existing and future customers. We look forward to new measurement challenges which we will tackle together!
The booth was often filled to capacity and included a demonstration wind tunnel with 2-axis traverse and a 5-hole probe as well as examples of the diverse probes and rakes offered by Vectoflow. The most popular of these was a turbine vane outfitted with 8 individual 3-hole probe heads, all with the pressure channels led out through the vane body to the base. A close second was a 3D printed 5-hole ceramic probe (Al2O3) capable of over 2050K enabling low conduction error combustion measurements. Many visitors asked about 5-hole probes incorporating temperature measurements. The combination of total temperature Kiel head and 5-hole probe is also popular with our customer base, so much so that we could not provide a demo.
We will strive to correct this in the near future, so plan to come by our booth in Phoenix in 2019 to see one in person, or simply order one custom design to your specifications!
