Flame detection & monitoring in GE Heavy Duty frame and LM aeroderivative gas turbines

Many GE gas turbines currently in operation may still be equipped with Geiger-Muller based flame sensors. These LG1093AA and LG1093AC or L28490P05 flame sensors have restrictions in their lifetime expectancy and reliability. Reuter-Stokes solid state flame sensors like the RS-FS-9001 and the RS-FS-9009 or FTD325 have significant advantages over the classic Geiger-Muller alternatives, see the GT flame sensor comparison chart for detail
