Hood Technology Corporation is a small, innovative engineering company located in Hood River, Oregon, USA, specializing in blade vibration & monitoring (BVM) for rotating machinery (e.g., gas turbine engines, turbochargers, steam turbines, compressors)

BVM refers to measurements made on rotating machinery using sensors that do not make contact with the rotor blades. A BVM system has a number of advantages over the traditional turbo-machinery measurement method (strain gages): data for each blade is acquired in a measured stage, and the instrumentation is non-contacting, which means that no slip rings or telemetry systems are required and the sensors can be replaced, if necessary, without dismantling the machine or even stopping the machine in some installations. Hood Technology has been designing and building blade tip timing systems since 1999 and has supported more than 200 tests on devices ranging from 5cm-diameter turbochargers to 4m-diameter steam turbines.
