Sentech Provides Steam Turbine OEMs With LVDTs & RVDTS

We’re proud to partner with some of the leading Steam Turbine manufacturers in the industrial power industry, including General Electric, Siemens, and Mitsubishi. Our sensors can be found in industrial turbines from these companies and many leading Steam Turbine manufacturers in the world.

From building brand-new sensors to designing and implementing sensors as replacement parts for worn-down or failing units, Sentech has the skill, expertise, and qualifications necessary to handle jobs of any type or size.

Understanding How LVDTs And RVDTs Are Used In Industrial Power Generation

LVDTs and RVDTs serve a similar purpose when used by both Gas Turbine OEMs and Steam Turbine OEMs. They are sensors that are designed to measure power generation in turbines and provide feedback to industrial computers and systems that adjust accordingly to provide the desired amount of power generation.

In steam turbines, an LVDT or RVDT controls the flow of steam through the inlet in the turbine – closing the inlet reduces steam flow and power generation, while opening it lets in more steam, and increases rotational speed and power generation. These LVDTs are usually larger and have high-temperature requirements. They are also designed to work in rigid environments. Although there is no real risk of explosions when dealing with Steam Turbines, we design our LVDTs and RVDTs with explosive environment certification because explosions can happen. This makes our LVDTs for Steam Turbines exceedingly safe.

Increasingly, these sensors are being used with automated systems to provide 24/7 feedback for industrial power plants – adjusting steam or fuel flow to reduce or increase power generation on-demand without the intervention of workers. For this reason, highly precise, accurate, long-lasting sensors are becoming even more important for Steam Turbine OEMs.
