Turbines & Expanders
MSI performs design, analysis, and testing of all types of axial and radial turbines including gas, steam, hydro, and wind. Markets served include energy, oil & gas, and aerospace & defense, among others. MSI performs 3-D finite element analysis of stress, deflection, and vibration. CFD is used to perform hydrodynamic evaluation from meanline performance analysis to complex analyses of primary and secondary flow fields through all stationary and rotating components. Detailed experimental evaluations can also be performed in the field or in MSI’s laboratory test rigs. Testing capabilities include performance and efficiency quantification, rotor pressure oscillation as reported by multi-channel telemetry, vibration modal testing, and vibration operating deflection shapes (ODS) testing.
