GSX™ Blade Failure Detection
MSI’s patented Non-contacting Stress Measurement System (NSMS) provides accurate blade vibration, stress, and failure detection for gas and steam turbine blades. The system utilizes a microwave radar sensor to detect blade tip vibration over a wide-field arc of travel, yielding an actual, rather than inferred, vibration signature. This vibration data is then processed with MSI’s GSX™ software to produce accurate stress calculations for the entire blade profile.
