ASME TurboExpo 2018 – a resounding success

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.

The application case of Vectoflow impressively shows how tailor-made flow measurement technology can be fabricated for many different areas. The advantages of additive manufacturing regarding design, size and material are leveraged in a targeted manner and combined with expertise in measurement technology. In this way, it is possible to offer customized flow measurement probes, which are robust, flexible, integral, and measure with high precision.
