R&D and testing

  • Hydraulic development of all types of centrifugal pumps (more than 65 years of experience!) supported by:
    • CFD simulations (more than 30 years of experience!)
    • Model testing
  • Physical model testing and CFD simulations of vertical pumps intakes and hydraulic development of suction structures
  • Mechanical development of centrifugal pumps, rotordynamics analysis and water hammer calculations
  • Independent model testing acc. different international standards on two closed loop test rigs
  • Independent testing of prototype pumps (»factory tests«) in the laboratory of Kolektor Turboinstitut on closed or open loops test rigs acc. different international standards
  • Site tests of pumps and system (flow measurement with current meters or ultrasonic method, efficiency measurement using thermodynamic method etc.)
