An aircraft owner or a pilot goes through many pre flight procedures in order to ensure that him and or his passengers are safe after take- off. One of the biggest insurances that you can afford for your aircraft is investing in a high end EGT & CHT gauge. Both of which can save you thousands of dollars on the engine maintenance and damage. But before understanding how they can save you money and be your insurance from damage, there needs to be an understanding of what they provide for the owner.
This gauge holds full responsibility in displaying how much exhaust heat your piston engine gives off. All in all, it measures the heat energy that is wasted during an exhaust stroke in the moment that the cylinder is under lowered stress. Normally on the display of the actual gauge you may find three lights (Red, Green, Yellow). Those indicate precaution stages with red obviously meaning to be prepared for the worst. In a piston aircraft it holds the responsibility for the mixture of fuel and air to give the best performance/range of the engine.
Unlike the EG Gauge, the CHT holds measure for heat energy that is wasted during a power stroke when the cylinder undergoes maximum stress. It is very essential to limit the CHT in order to ensure cylinder longevity. There are several other responsibilities that this gauge holds:
• Losses of Friction
• A Conduction to Air
The One and One Together Solution
In comparison to a vehicle, aircraft maintenance is quite pricey. There is no really set in stone insurance that can save you from huge engine expense either. But what can play the key role is installing an EGT Gauge & CHT gauge in your aircraft. All functions of the engine can be monitored and maintained at the correct moment, thus allowing you to save money and be insured that the long activity of the cylinder will be extended. Other benefits include:
• Early Warnings
• Abnormal Combustion Events
• Low/High Pressure Identification
• Oil Temperature
All in all both Digital Gauges are used to prevent and monitor multi functions of the aircrafts engine and cylinders. Since everything depends on each other, you need a system that can ensure you that your aircraft will be safe to fly and can be depended upon. In addition, a great gauge system will act as your insurance that will help cut maintenance cost and save you money. Expensive damage can usually occur when there is not proper maintenance of when things when they need to get done, but when the warning comes at the right time there should not be any excuse of why you would not be prepared.
