Sensatek- Sensatek Propulsion Technology, Inc. (Sensatek) offers extreme monitoring of temperatures up to 1,400C. Sensatek’s patented sensors are embedded on rotating and stationary gas turbine blades to obtain more accurate combustion firing temperature data, enabling gas turbines to operate more efficiently – leading to more electricity production. Sensatek’s sensors boost revenue without increasing cost, and allow operators to more efficiently conduct reliability-based maintenance on an as-needed basis, driving additional cost savings. Our solution offers gas turbine fleet owners the capability to place small-sized sensors in hard to reach areas, and transmit the sensed data wirelessly. The sensor is made of polymer-derived ceramics (PDC) that are able to withstand the high temperature and harsh environment of turbine engines, and requires no external power source or batteries.
Sensatek is a VC backed startup based in Daytona Beach, Florida and has received numerous awards that includes:
• National Science Foundation STTR Phase 1 and SBIR Phase II
• 1st Place Winner of U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable
