STS* proves novel online temperature detection system on an operating Rolls-Royce engine

*Southside Thermal Sciences (STS) is now called Sensor Coating Systems (SCS).
Southside Thermal Sciences (STS) Ltd, successfully conducted a gas turbine engine test on a Rolls-Royce VIPER 201 engine, using its fully patented sensor coating technology to measure temperatures online. The work was conducted under the project ‘Sensor CoatingSystem – SeCSy’ which is co-financed through the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) and is in cooperation with RWE npower, LANDInstruments and Cranfield University. The VIPER gas turbine is owned by STS and has been specifically modified to enable optical
access.
