TORCI - A robust Torque sensor for Challenging Industrial Applications

Process monitoring of industrial processes is often very limited. To measure key process parameters the sensors must be able to stand high temperatures and mechanical forces and should not interfere with the process. This project will investigate a method of torque measurement where the deformation experienced by the sensing shaft is converted into volume change.

Torque Sensor Design
A new torque sensor design, using a hallow shaft with notches on its body, where a tiny twist of the body causes air pressure to change inside the notches. This change is then measured by a differential pressure sensor to deduce torque.
