IMES is a privately owned company founded by Stefan Neumann in 1996. It based in the town of Kaufbeuren, in the picturesque Allgäu region of Bavaria, Southern Germany. IMES specializes in electronic measurement, monitoring and testing of cylinder pressure on engines and compressors, based on its high precision TION thin film pressure sensors.

IMES counts all the world’s major engine manufacturers among its customer base and IMES sensors, electronic pressure indicators and combustion monitoring systems are employed on a wide range of diesel, gas and dual-fuel engines, on ships and locomotives and in power and cogeneration plants and pipeline compressor stations all around the world.

IMES developed system for advanced engine analysis with permanent engine monitoring

In times where emission regulations continue to tighten, optimised engine performance to reduce NOx and CO2 is of paramount importance.

As a specialist for cylinder pressure measurement, we developed a two-stroke combustion sensor, TCS-01CA, for continuous cylinder pressure measurement on two-stroke diesel engines to enable cylinder balancing and performance evaluation (24h per day / 365 per year).

The sensor is designed for permanent installation on marine diesel engines. It should be installed in a special adaptor between cylinder cover and indicator cock, as this reduces the build-up of combustion deposition at the sensor membrane significantly. We offers these special adaptors for MAN and Wärtsilä engines.

TCS-01CA is a very robust sensor, its closed face makes the sensor immune to sooting. Due to this and due to its very good thermodynamic characteristics cylinder pressure measurements can be made with high precision (< 1% Full scale).

Furthermore the sensor convinces with ...
