Monitoring the extension of pipelines
Pipelines in power plants are exposed to high pressures and temperatures. These extreme loads cause the pipes to vibrate and result in thermal expansions of up to 1 m at some points. Constant hangers are used to compensate for these thermal displacements of the pipes. Draw-wire sensors from Micro-Epsilon transmit the movement information reliably and safely to the control centre. The optoNCDT ILR2250 laser distance sensors are recommended for monitoring from a long distance.
