Multi-Stage Turbine Test

Two Multi-Stage Turbine Test cells at Ignition Park can operate a wide range of single or multi-stage HPT and LPT test articles with AC dynamometers of up to 5.2 MW.

The turbine test cells are powered by a significant air plant capability to provide total-to-total pressure ratios as high as 30 with inlet temperatures to 1200°F at a wide range of Reynolds numbers. Multiple secondary flow circuits provide for the operation of fully cooled and purged turbine test articles with engine relevant density ratios.
