Max Temp: 1900°F (1038°C). HBWAPT Series strain gages are constructed with a platinum-tungsten alloy that has excellent high temperature oxidation resistance, and low, stable temperature coefficients of resistance. These high temperature strain gauges are an excellent choice to measure the stress distribution and fatigue life of turbine blades in rapidly rotating turbo jet engines. Other uses include test and failure analysis in many automotive and aerospace applications.
Product Category: Dynamic
Max Temp: 1600°F (871°C). HBWANV Strain Gages are configured with a Nichrome wire sensor bonded to a Hastelloy® X shim using flame sprayed alumina. These fatigue resistant gages are commonly used to measure vibratory strain in extreme high temperature environments on test components for automotive, aerospace and power generation applications.
