Burns Stainless LLC Introduces Innovative Technology - Gill Sensors and Controls at PRI2016

Gill 4223 Lightweight Level Sensor Gill 4142 Ultrasonic Fuel Flow Meter Gill 1599 Oil Debris Sensor

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Burns Stainless is pleased to introduce new innovative sensor technology to the North American market. Gill Sensors and Controls has been a supplier to European motorsports including Formula One and World Endurance Championship. These sensors include solid state liquid level sensors, position sensors, oil condition sensors and highly accurate ultrasonic fuel flow meters.

The Gill GSlevel sensor is a solid state capacitive design which has no moving parts, is highly accurate and able to withstand harsh environments found in racing vehicles including Formula One cars. The sensors can be used in fuel, oil and coolant tanks and are programmable for multiple liquids and odd-shaped tanks.

The GSposition sensors use non-contact induction technology to detect the position of a metallic “target” mounted to the moving part. Gill supplies angular, linear and rotary position sensors which are fully sealed and suited to harsh environments: high/low temperatures and thermal shock; vibration; shock; dust; grime; and salt spray.

The Gill GScondition Oil Condition System is an innovative product capable of real-time monitoring of ferric particles and water content in an oil supply. The sensor system uses a magnetic probe to capture ferric particles and using induction technology, measure the amount of fine and coarse particles in the oil supply providing engineers and technicians the earliest possible warning of component failure.

The GSflow liquid low meter uses proven solid-state ultrasonic technology to accurately measure liquid flowrates. The solid state (i.e. no moving parts) design is compact, lightweight and built to withstand extreme levels of vibration and temperature. The meter is so accurate and dependable, that it has been certified by FIA for use on F1 and WEC race vehicles.

"Gill is excited to be working with Burns, introducing Gill's technologies to advance engine performance with their F1 based sensing technologies,” says Paul Cain of Gill Sensors and Controls. “Burns Stainless has earned a reputation for quality and integrity in the North American motorsports industry is an ideal partner for Gill.”
