3D Traverse

It is important to produce an accurate 3D map of an exhaust flowfield to compare against CFD simulations. The traverse rig allows pitot and temperature probes to be inserted into the exhaust at moved to specific locations throughout a run. The traverse is controlled from S & C's logging software and can be operated remotely via an ethernet connection.


  • 3-axis movement (maximum 2000mm in each direction)
  • <0.5mm positional accuracy
  • Maximum speed 300mm/s, controllable
  • Single and multiple probe heads


  • pressure and temperature measurements
  • gas composition testing
  • particulate measurements
  • controlled coating of test articles - thermal spray
