Title (EN) METHOD OF MONITORING THE STATUS OF A TURBOMACHINE HAVING A CASING WHEREIN LIQUID MAY ACCUMULATE, ARRANGEMENT AND TURBOMACHINE
(FR) PROCÉDÉ DE CONTRÔLE DE L'ÉTAT D'UNE TURBOMACHINE COMPORTANT UN CARTER OÙ PEUT S'ACCUMULER DU LIQUIDE, AGENCEMENT ET TURBOMACHINE
Abstract:
(EN) A turbomachine has a casing (10) where liquid may accumulate; at least one liquid level detector (11) is located inside the casing (10) for automatically detecting liquid accumulated inside the casing (10) during operation of the turbomachine; the liquid level detector (11) may be arranged for detecting one or two or three or four liquid levels (L1, L2, L3, L4) inside the casing (10); the liquid level detector (11) is typically connected to an electronic unit (13) at least for automatically signaling (14) the liquid level. Advantageously, the electronic unit controls at least one valve for automatically discharging the accumulated liquid from the casing; in this way, the status of the turbomachine is not only monitored but also managed.
(FR) Turbomachine comportant un carter (10) où peut s'accumuler un liquide ; au moins un détecteur de niveau de liquide (11) se situe à l'intérieur du carter (10) pour détecter automatiquement le liquide accumulé à l'intérieur du carter (10) pendant le fonctionnement de la turbomachine ; le détecteur de niveau de liquide (11) peut être conçu pour détecter un ou deux ou trois ou quatre niveaux de liquide (L1, L2, L3, L4) à l'intérieur du carter (10) ; le détecteur de niveau de liquide (11) est habituellement relié à une unité électronique (13) au moins pour signaler (14) automatiquement le niveau du liquide. Avantageusement, l'unité électronique commande au moins une soupape pour rejeter automatiquement le liquide accumulé du carter ; de cette manière, l'état de la turbomachine est non seulement contrôlé, mais également géré.
