Recent developments and news at the pressure probe manufacturing firm Vectoflow.

Product launch: VectoDAQ Air Data System

The VectoDAQ Air Data System consists of an air data computer and a leightweight flow measurement probe made with additive manufacturing, like all of Vectoflow’s probes. It is designed for simultaneous measurements of multiple pressure and temperature signals and data reduction of the data to obtain flow values like angle of attack, true air speed and flight height.



Product launch: Fast Response Measurement Systems

Vectoflow launches a new product line of unsteady flow probes with embedded pressure sensors. In the same way as all other Vectoflow products, the new unsteady probes are highly customizable and extremely robust at the same time, due to Vectoflow’s optimized additive manufacturing method. The probes are available with 1 up to 7 holes (others on request) and come with a frequency and angular calibration.



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.
