Ships generate extreme loads on the components of the engines and compressors. The high temperatures this process produces mean that some of the mechanical components have to be constantly monitored. Reliable measurement technology from JUMO helps you monitor temperature and pressure in engines and compressors.
Temperature and pressure monitoring in the compressor
Two generic principles for the compression of air (or gas) exist: positive displacement compression and dynamic compression.
Positive displacement compressors include, for example, reciprocating (piston) compressors, orbital (scroll) compressors, and different types of rotary compressors (screw, tooth, and vane).
Temperature and pressure measurement is an important factor for the compressor to function. JUMO Pt100 sensors are an excellent choice to maintain a secure process. The temperature sensor senses if the temperature is too high or low and gives the control system a signal if something is wrong. A pressure sensing body such as a diaphragm is then converted to an electrical signal (4 to 20 mA or 0 to 5V). The MIDAS pressure transmitter series is a perfect choice to control the pressure in the system.
