A fuel flow transducer is an electromechanical device, since it converts the energy of the spinning turbine wheel
to electronic signal pulses, which are passed along to a microprocessor and then displayed on a control head or on a GPS navigator (generally on a fuel endurance utility page).
T1] is the moment on the turbine wheel
and remains fixed as long as they're blocking;
Comp Turbo can supply the TRIPLEX CERAMIC[TM] turbocharger with various compressors and turbine wheel
trims to tailor its performance so that it matches specific engine application requirements; whether they be racing, street or stationary.
Subsequent investigation revealed that due to a manufacturing fault on the compressor side of the turbo assembly, the turbine wheel
failed and departed the shaft and the airplane.
The turbine wheel
rotates at a speed proportional to the flow rate.
With it in hand, he set off on an odyssey to Mexico, shopping around for the cheapest manufacturer to mold its plastic turbine wheel
The device utilizes a miniature turbine wheel
and infrared beams to precisely achieve 10:1 or better turndown ratios with repeatability of [+ or -] 0.
This provides improved transient response by allowing the turbocharger to come up to speed more quickly than would be possible using a steel turbine wheel
The benefits of Veracity's system were recently proven during a lifetime extension inspection of a power generation gas turbine wheel
While the most common type of gasoline turbocharger today, the radial turbocharger, features a radial exhaust gas flow to the turbine wheel
, the new Continental turbocharger features a radial-axial flow hence the name RAAX.
This arrangement keeps the exhaust pulses separated from the next cylinder in the firing order so that there aren't any mixing losses and there is maximized pulse energy to the turbine wheel
, which means quicker torque delivery, similar to a twin-turbocharger setup.
The exhaust gas pulses from each bank of three cylinders are fed through two separate channels to the turbine wheel
