Premixed combustion burner for gas turbine
Publication/Patent Number: US8065880B2 Publication Date: 2011-11-29 Application Number: 11/655,059 Filing Date: 2007-01-19 Inventor: Ishizaka, Koichi   Kawata, Yutaka   Takiguchi, Satoshi   Tanimura, Satoshi   Assignee: Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd.   IPC: F02C1/00 Abstract: A premixed combustion burner for a gas turbine can efficiently premix fuel and air to produce fuel gas having a uniform concentration, while reliably achieving prevention of flash back by making the flow rate of fuel gas substantially uniform. The premixed combustion burner for a gas turbine has a fuel nozzle, a burner cylinder arranged so as to surround the fuel nozzle and form an air passageway between itself and the fuel nozzle, and swirler vanes that are arranged along an axial direction of the fuel nozzle in a plurality of positions around the circumferential direction of an outer circumference surface of the fuel nozzle. The swirler vanes gradually curve from an upstream side to a downstream side to spin the air traveling within the air passageway from the upstream side to the downstream side. A cutaway section is provided in a rear edge section on an inner circumference side of the swirler vanes.

Multi-pinion gear digital beam torque wrench
Publication/Patent Number: US8065806B2 Publication Date: 2011-11-29 Application Number: 12/425,568 Filing Date: 2009-04-17 Inventor: Rainone, Michael D.   Baxter, Daniel   Hovanky, Thao D.   Assignee: Brown Line Metal Works, LLC   IPC: G01B5/24 Abstract: A digital torque wrench includes a position sensor assembly which measures the movement of a load beam with respect to an indicator beam to determine the torque being applied to a working element by the torque wrench. The position sensor assembly includes a first position sensor portion having multiple rotatable pinion gears coupled to a potentiometer, and includes a second position sensor portion having a rack gear that engages one of the pinion gears of the first position sensor portion. The first and second position sensor portions are attached to different ones of the load beam and the indicator beam so that at least one of the pinion gears rotates along the rack gear in response to force (torque) being applied through the load beam to the working element. Rotation of the pinion gears causes rotation of a potentiometer element, which produces a signal indicative of the relative displacement of the load beam with respect to the indicator beam. This displacement is then converted to a torque measurement and is displayed to a user via a display. The use of multiple pinion gears enables a high degree of resolution with respect to the torque measurements, while reducing the width profile of the torque wrench. A digital torque wrench includes a position sensor assembly which measures the movement of a load beam with respect to an indicator beam to determine the torque being applied to a working element by the torque wrench. The position sensor assembly includes a first position sensor ...More ...Less
