Radial turbomachinery

In the field of radial turbomachinery we are investigating phenomena that are typical for this type of turbomachines, in contrast to axial turbomaschines. Radial turbomachines are typically deployed in applications, where robustness and a high power density play a key role. For example, small- and medium-sized radial compressors and radial turbines are commonly used in turbochargers.

At ITSM we have unique and innovative test rigs, that allow us both the invesigation of individual radial turbomachinery components and complete turbochargers. The measuring range for turbochargers extends from small car engines to heavy-duty vehicle applications.
