New temperature-indicating paints for turbines

New temperature-indicating paints for turbines

When gas turbine designers and engineers run the initial tests on a new power system, they want to know the temperatures at which the hot-section components, especially the turbine blades, had operated. Accurate temperature measurements tell the specialists if the engine is functioning within its design limits and whether it might run at a higher (maximum) temperature and thus, efficiency level.
