Atlas Copco Gas and Process takes a comprehensive approach in testing our machinery.
From the overspeed tests we conduct on all impellers to our exhaustive air compressor testing, every machine and part is examined to ensure superior operational performance before it is installed.
Here is an overview of the core turbomachinery testing methods carried out at our testing facility in Cologne:
We are capable of testing expansion turbines in a low-temperature closed loop down to inlet temperatures of -140 C.
The facility includes a balancing machine that can be used to conduct tests at 63,000 rpm.
Our facility provides multi-stage centrifugal turbo compressor testing for surge-free compressor performance.
Atlas Copco Gas and Process puts a premium on customer satisfaction. Naturally, our team of experts does not simply quit after the installation of a turbo compressor or expansion turbine. Instead, Atlas Copco Gas and Process engineers continue to perform job motor, panel, aerostatic leakages and vibration testing, in addition to standard tests.
Our testing measures are another indication of our commitment to quality and our constant desire to provide optimal customer service. From the initial design to post-installation service, whether the product is a centrifugal air compressor or a replacement part, we provide our customers with comprehensive service in a cooperative effort.
In summary, the test team’s work always focuses on several key goals: Eliminating defects, enhancing efficiency, fulfilling customer expectations, and – if possible – even exceeding them.
