Technical Detail (View Specification (docx) )


Turbine single stage with axial flux ; Maximum speed: 35000tr/min; Max power: 45W

Injection nozzles : four nozzles with isolation valves.

Brake: brake with belt mounted on the shaft of the turbine. The cooling is assured by a compressed air supply

Torquemeter: force sensor with strain gauge and indicator on the panel

Temperature: Measurement of the air inlet and outlet of the turbine by probe Pt 100 three wires

Air flowrate: float flowmeter with glass tube at the turbine outlet

Rotation speed: optical sensor with npn converter

Pressure manometer: manometer with bourdon tube scale of -1 to +1 bar

Safety valve: prevents the overpressures in the turbine

Filter regulator: purifies the compressed air supplying the machine and reduces the pressure

Needle: ensures the adjustment of the tension of the belt of the brake of the turbine

Compressed air supply: 6-8 bars (dry air)
