Turbomachinery is an important technology used in a wide array of industries including aircraft engines, air handling, oil and gas, and power generation. Aeroprobe’s Multi-hole measurement systems are used in many ways throughout these industries to validate CFD tools, quantify stage efficiencies, detect surge, and measure inlet conditions to name a few.
“We have purchased six customized cobra probes with 1.6 mm tips from Aeroprobe. These miniature Multi-hole probes from Aeroprobe performed beyond our expectations. The use of the probes has allowed us to better understand the flowfield characteristics, and understanding that is expected to lead to better engine designs with enhanced performance.”
Hyoun-Woo Shin, Ph.D Senior Engineer, GE Aircraft Engines
“The use of five-hole probes in production machines has allowed us the measurement of flow angle information that was not previously available from production-type testing of multi-stage axial compressors. For one particular application, this data allowed us to enhance the performance of the production of the machine.”
