Parallel to water turbines also pumps development is based on more than 65 years experience and it has been strongly supported by expert fluid flow simulations.
Model development has been carried out for various world famous centrifugal pumps and torque converters manufacturers, models manufactured on in-house facilities and proved with model tests in laboratory on up to date closed loop test rigs.
Kolektor Turboinštitut uses its experience to address the great demand for efficiency improvements in existing pumps. The Company realizes for the plant owner the complete refurbishment process, starting with site testing of existing pumps, analysing the pump and system characteristics, designing and development of modifications, manufacturing of new impellers and other pump parts, and finally acceptance testing in laboratory or at site.
Additional benefits of efficiency improvement and energy reduction include resulting carbon savings for which "green" credits likely will be available in the future.
