OPTISAVE system

Temperature distribution measurement

The OPTISAVE system is a fibre-potic temperature measurement system. There are two different types of the OPTISAVE system for several applications of temperature measurement:

OPTISAVE F – used to record temperatures over long lengths or large areas

OPTISAVE G – used for selective detection of temperatures at specific locations

Functionality

Functionality

The recording of temperatures is accomplished with optical fibres which are installed in the monitored components. If desired, the wear measurement can be provided. The number of measuring channels and the sensor length can be adjusted based on the project specification. The temperature and wear curves are visualized specific to the customer or Equipment.
