Expander & Compressor Wheel Design


Based on gas conditions and operating specifics of the site where the turboexpander will operate, our engineering team calculates and specifies the expander and compressor design of each machine. In order to arrive at an optimized design, engineers go through an elaborate process of 1D, 2D, and 3D design, FEA and CFD analysis, structural resonance prediction, and fatigue analysis. The design phase is an iterative process with an end goal of meeting or exceeding design criteria such as reliability and efficiency. This process requires the use of highly advanced software coupled with the skill and knowledge of our engineers.
