Reuter-Stokes Flame Tracker
Reuter-Stokes, a Baker Hughes business, is well-known in the power industry for its reliable Flame Tracker family of flame sensors located in gas turbines. The UV-based Flame Tracker is standard OEM equipment on many models.
Reuter-Stokes Flame Sensor technology dramatically improves gas turbine performance while significantly reducing maintenance requirements. Standard on all new GE gas turbines, the Flame Tracker flame sensor is designed for use with multiple fuels. Reliable turbine operations for oil/steam injection applications require the sensitivity provided by Flame Tracker.
The Reuter-Stokes UV Advantage
Unlike IR sensors, UV-based flame scanners respond more quickly to changes in flame status because they are not subjected to black body radiation and lack the inertial memory of a thermocouple. Users rely on Flame Tracker models for proper operation of gas turbines and other critical infrastructure and are ideal in situations where other service-prone technologies, like thermocouples, tend to fail.
