Future fuel resistant sensor types by IMES

Since 1997 the IMES GmbH is specialized in the field of combustion engine cylinder pressure and data acquisition systems. Its cylinder pressure sensors, electronic pressure indicators and combustion control and monitoring systems are employed on a wide range of diesel-, gas- and dual-fuel engines on ships and locomotives and in power and cogeneration plants and pipeline compressor stations all around the world.

Due to increasing environmental awareness, the marine, power generation, rail traction and gas compression sectors are all facing new challenges in the form of ever tighter national and international legislation, agreements and incentives affecting noxious emissions, greenhouse gas emissions and fuel economy. At the same time, the demand from engine users for more power from the same or smaller displacement and lower life cycle costs continue uninterrupted.

Hydrogen, ammonia, or methanol will be an integral part of future engines. For these applications the sensors have to fulfill special material characteristics to withstand corrosion and embrittlement and as all our sensors they need to have a very good thermodynamic performance and they have to be extreme robust against high dp/dt.

IMES offers precise and robust cylinder pressure sensors for periodic checks and for continuous monitoring. According to the customers requirements the sensors are available with various thread, sleeve length, cable length or measuring cell and different electronic.

Currently, IMES’ sensors are installed on various hydrogen engines worldwide for long-time operation tests.
