Aerospace Industry

Reliability and safety are of great importance in the aerospace industry. In addition, criteria like robustness of sensors and other components, vibration resistance, but also temperature resistance and resilience to quick temperature changes are important.

At Trigas, these requirements are well understood and implemented into the latest product developments and solutions.

That is why almost all major European airlines have their flowmeters calibrated and sometimes even the blades and vanes of their jet engines air tested at the TrigasFI laboratories. In cases of particularly important equipment that is permanently in use and cannot be removed to be sent out for calibration, TrigasFI technicians regularly visit aerospace customers to perform on-site calibrations.

Test mission-critical aerospace components benefit from Alicat gas pressure regulators that can control pressures up to 200 bar.

Carry out aerodynamic tests of aircraft models or check the quality of pilot masks in the cockpit with the bi-directional mass flow meter from Alicat, which can simulate the breathing of pilots with its particularly low pressure drop.

Our turbine flowmeters offer all the important features which are required for exact measurements of liquids in the air and on the ground.

They are small and light (they weigh only a few grams), at the same time offering high accuracy and reliability. Temperature fluctuations and corresponding viscosity changes of fuel and other critical fluids are monitored and compensation is applied through proprietary algorithms and special multi-viscosity calibration methods.

TrigasDM turbine flowmeters are the ideal solution for many more applications at airports and space stations, like in the measurement of liquids of spacesuits, fuel supply to missiles or the monitoring of drinking water or coolant consumption for on-board experiments.

Trigas offers not only equipment, but also high-quality regular maintenance and if required, repair and spare parts. Talk to us about a partnership for peace of mind on your current applications and advice on new ones!

We recommend the following products:

High-precision DM series turbine flow meter, light weight version, with hose connection, recommended for measurement of fuels and coolants up to a range of 2000 l/min, especially for mobile applications in vehicles

Low profile Smart Pickoffs, with the flowmeter calibration data stored internally.  They allow out turbine flowmeters to be connected to any of our Lysis linearizers offering a true plug & play/measure solution; now also with built-in temperature compensation! Especially recommended for mobile applications.

Lysis linearization electronics, designed for Smart Pickoffs as plug & play/measure system; space-saving construction fits easily into the vehicle as well as the motor compartment, capable of operating at temperatures of up to 125 ° C, IP68 including connector.  Now also with temperature compensation! Recommended for mobile applications!

DMTurbineAN

High Precision DM series turbine flow meter with versatile  threaded connection; also for bidirectional measurements,
recommended for test benches

With our standard pickoffs you already get the benefit of a no-drag, stable RF carrier based sensor, working without magnetic fields which retard the turbine rotor motion or attracting metal particles which affect the dimension of the flow path and the velocity profile of the flowing liquid. High temperature versions, versions with integrated temperature sensor or with additional signal amplifiers optionally available; recommended for test benches

TriLIN linearization electronics store the special UVC data that combine several calibrations of the turbine flowmeter for different viscosities with optional Temperature compensation which makes accurate flow measurement possible over the defined temperature and viscosity range.
Configurable as 2-channel version, for differential flow measurements (A-B consumption), bi-directional measurements, etc.; recommended for test benches

Alicat MW Series is a low pressure drop mass flow meter. With only a few mbar of pressure drop Alicat Whisper meters are the ideal solution for many precision measurements. It provides not only a very quick response time of 10 ms and an accuracy of up to 0.4%  of reading + 0,2% of full scale, of reading, but it is also robust and insensitive to shocks and moisture. You can choose from up to 130 stored gas calibration curves and create your own gas mixtures without a new calibration and still staying fully within accuracy statement; A single device for a variety of applications!

Alicat MC Series, the fastest gas controller, provides with its special valves control times of below 50ms and therefore a brilliant stable control. User selectable units and a large display ensure easy operation and convenient reading of all parameters. The connection to PLC or PC via bus interfaces enables easy integration into existing systems. (also available as MCW in low pressure drop Whisper version)

PCD-15PSIG-D_1080

Alicat PCD series, the gas pressure controller with the integrated quick valves (available with up-, downstream or 2 valves) and the high repeatability of 0,08% of full scale guarantees a stable process control and is available for different pressure ranges. User selectable units and a large display ensure easy operation and convenient reading of all parameters. The connection to PLC or PC via bus interfaces enables easy integration into existing systems.
