Test bench    Techn. Data

Meas. systems


Breakage at the blade root of an axial flow fan, weak point caused by cavitation shrink holes

Fan wheel destroyed by cenrifugal overload

Fan wheel deformed by centrifugal forces

The maximum operating speed of fan wheels (impellers) is determined by a Centrifugal Force Test.

Test Procedures:


Deformation measurement at a fan wheel

FE Analysis of a fan wheel, parameter: wall thickness (nonlinear material model)

Finite-Element-Analysis of a high-pressure fan wheel
