CMR Group, the engine control technology and instrumentation specialist, has introduced a series of high performance temperature sensors for dedicated applications in the nuclear power industry.
The range brings together four different sensor series, all of which are K3 or K3ad environmentally compliant for the ambient temperature monitoring of fluid, gas and bearing temperatures in the nuclear industry.
CMR’s AN sensor series is designed for the temperature measurement of high pressure fluids and aggressive gaseous fluids used in nuclear power generation, although they can also be used effectively with non-pressurised fluids.
For more conventional measurement of ambient temperatures to very low or sub-zero levels in damp or refrigerated atmospheres, and ventilation ducts, the AMB sensor series is recommended.
For temperature measurements associated with alternators, pumps, steam and gas turbine bearings and other rotary machine bearings, two CMR sensor options are available.
These are the BS6 nuclear sensor with an insulated platinum resistance temperature detector (RTD) for use in harsh environments, and the special BCI6 type K thermocouple sensor for bearing temperature measurement on rotating/reciprocating machines.
The performance specification CMR sensors can be determined in compliance with specific application requirements. The AN, AMB and BS6 series can be supplied wither as single or double RTD (3 or 4 wires) configurations or as a single or double K type thermocouples.
