How many buckets should a Pelton hydro turbine have? That was the question posed by the customer. MSI created a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model to determine the optimal torque and power output considering two different configurations.
Varying nozzle flows of the Pelton hydro turbine modeled.
A major pump OEM called on MSI to help resolve multiple pump driveshaft failures for an ore mining company in East Africa.
To identify potential opportunities for early bearing failure, MSI performed experimental modal analysis (EMA) and operational deflection shape (ODS) tests on a prototype unit for the manufacturer.
