Aircraft Turbine Test Facility

This aircraft turbine test facility was in need of a centrifugal compressed air system to drive an aircraft turbine for testing purposes to improve energy efficiencies as well as internal cooling of the jet engine.  C.H. reed designed & installed the centrifugal unit to meet the customer’s specifications.  We also provided them with a Hydrothrift closed loop cooling system, custom fabricated test piping, and a process gas chiller to help them meet their goals. This centrifugal compressor is located at Penn State University in State College, PA and was purchased through the Department of Energy-National Energy Technology Laboratory (DOE-NETL).
