Can you extend EGT wires?

Can you extend EGT wires?

The maximum length you can extend the EGT probe’s cable is about 50 feet.

How long do EGT probes last?

EGT and TIT last 600-1000 hours, CHT, OIL, last longer.

How high is too high for EGTS?

How Hot Is Too Hot for EGT’s? Based on our own experience in the sled pulling and drag racing world, we can definitely say that any engine running at 1,800 to 2,000 degrees EGT for more than a second or two should be rebuilt every season and may incur turbocharger, cylinder head, or piston damage during the season.

Do I need an EGT probe?

If you are playing with fuel/air ratio, fitting a larger turbo or running higher boost, a quality EGT Gauge is a must. Without it, you may find that the engine runs too hot and does damage.

How do you test an EGT probe?

To test the sensor, use a separate IR measurement device, and compare the readings to the live data obtained when using a diagnostic tool. Run the engine so the exhaust increases in temperature and compare the readings.

How do you measure an EGT?

The gas temperature is measured by a number of thermocouples mounted in the exhaust stream and is presented on a flight deck gauge in either degrees Fahrenheit or degrees Celcius. In a piston engine, EGT is a measurement of the temperature of the exhaust gases at the exhaust manifold.

Are EGT probes Universal?

The model MM-111 probe (type K) is applicable to any type of aircraft exhaust gas temperature indicator that uses type K thermocouple as its electrical source. The MM-111 is designed to universally replace all chromel alumel (type K) thermocouples regardless of manufacturer or design.

Why do I need exhaust temp gauge?

The exhaust gas temperature (EGT) pyrometer can be one of the most important gauges on a turbo-diesel-powered vehicle. It can warn the driver of situations that are potentially damaging to the engine, and it can also be used as a guide for optimizing fuel economy.

What’s a good EGT temp?

1250º to 1300º F.
If everything is working properly, 1250º to 1300º F. is a safe turbine inlet temperature, even for sustained running, mile after mile. Above 1300º F. things can start to get edgy. Remember, excessive EGT damage is cumulative.
