Turbomachinery

Turbomachinery is an important field of application for Vectoflow products. The geometric flexibility combined with increased mechanical robustness and temperature resistance of the probes enables measurements even under difficult conditions. Vectoflow instruments entire gas turbines including truss systems for its customers.

Probes

Conventional multi-hole probe

Multi-hole probes offer straightforward operation to enable concurrent detection of critical aerodynamic and thermodynamic variables:

  • angle of attack
  • speed
  • static and total pressure
  • static and total temperature
  • other relevant values
  • Rakes

    Rakes integrate multiple measuring heads into a single probe, making them ideal for simultaneous determination of flow parameters at multiple measuring points. These versatile tools can be equipped with various probe heads, including multi-hole, kiel probe for total pressure and total temperature measurement, static pressure sensors, and pressure tabs.

    Kiel probes

    Vectoflow's Kiel probes feature a uniquely optimised inlet geometry, ensuring precise measurement of total pressure and total temperature with an accuracy of 1000 ° C.. These probes are capable of accurately capturing flow angles of up to +/-60°.

    Special multi-hole probes

    Our advanced additive manufacturing process enables the production of nearly all conceivable probe geometries. Simply provide us with your desired geometry or describe your measurement requirements, and we will devise a tailored solution to meet your needs.
    To illustrate Vectoflow’s capabilities, the lobbed nozzle in the picture, crafted from cobalt chrome, underwent meticulous surface treatment at the culmination of the manufacturing process.
    Featuring integrated pressure channels and ports for thermocouples, this nozzle design allows for comprehensive assessment of the exhaust gas flow encountered behind a thrust engine, offering rich data insights without the need for complex instrumentation.

    High temperature probes

    Are you seeking to acquire precise temperature and pressure measurements directly behind a combustion chamber?
    Our solution provides an optimal method for measurements in high-temperature environments. Vectoflow's high-temperature probes, crafted through additive manufacturing, boast numerous advantages, including exceptional geometric flexibility and superior mechanical properties.

    Systems

    EvoScann P-Series Pressure Scanner

    Vectoflow is the sales partner of the EvoScann P-Series pressure scanner from Evolution Measurement in Germany. The EvoScann P-Series pressure scanner is a highly miniaturized pressure scanner that can be used particularly well in the automotive industry. Its robust housing makes it ideal for in-car testing and its small size allows measurements in previously inaccessible areas.

    Traverse System

    Vectoflow offers complete solutions, which consist of flow probes, probe calibration, hardware for pressure and temperature measurement as well as measurement and control software (VectoVis Pro). The product portfolio is supplemented by all kinds of traverse systems, which are used in wind tunnels but also in gas turbines and many other areas and enable the user to precisely position the flow probes. The truss systems can be fully controlled with VectoVis Pro and therefore integrate perfectly into the overall system. Even loads of 1200 N and more are no problem for Vectoflow's traverse systems, with consistent positioning accuracy.

    Air Data Systems

    The VectoDAQ Air Data Computer together with flow measurement probes from Vectoflow forms a compact and lightweight system for measuring flow parameters in mobile applications.

    Software

    VectoVis Professional

    VectoVis Professional is a software that provides a comprehensive solution for real-time data acquisition, visualization, and evaluation of Vectoflow's most common sensors and flow probes. It allows users to control traverse systems, configure hardware environments, and customise flow probes. Users can visualize and store both raw and fully evaluated data, as well as define automatic test plans where traverses can be manipulated, data recorded, evaluated and saved. VectoVis Professional is structured with a framework and separate modules tailored for different probe types, ensuring versatility and adaptability to specific measurement needs.
