A grant from the Eurostars program of the Eureka network has been awarded to an international project consortium composed of three partners from Belgium and Germany: Aerosint, a startup from Liège, Belgium; Vectoflow, a startup from Munich, Germany; and the research institute Fraunhofer IGCV in Augsburg, Germany.
As every year, Vectoflow was at the ASME Turbo Expo, which was held in Phoenix, Arizona. We welcomed many people to our booth and we showed them our small wind tunnel in action and all our other products.
Vectoflow is the exclusive distributer of Evolution Measurement’s EvoScann P-Series Pressure Scanner in Germany. In addition to the P8 and the P16 pressure scanner, there is now also the P64-D pressure scanner.
We built an extremely small kiel probe with a 1.6mm tip diameter. To show you how small it is, we put it next to a Euro one cent coin.
Our old version of the VectoDAQ Air Data System could be connected to different probe types ranging from a simple pitot-static probe up to a 5-hole probe. Now you can connect it with probes up to a 14-hole omniprobe.
An interesting paper coming from TU Berlin was published on the topic “Development of an Instrumented Guide Vane Set for RDC Exhaust Flow Characterization”. As described in the publication, short duration measurements of detonation waves in the TU Berlin detonation test stand were made using two Kiel Probes from Vectoflow made of CoCr alloy.
The Institute of Atmospheric Physics of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) uses a 5 hole probe from Vectoflow for their atmospheric research.
Here we want to show you an interesting paper from Marcel Boerner and Reinhard Niehuis from the Institute of Jet Propulsion of the Bundeswehr University Munich.
We want to show you our interesting casy study with 3D MicroPrint about how Micro Laser Sintering makes tailormade flow measurement technology possible.
Are you interested in Aerospace? Then you would love our case study with EOS about Additive Manufacturing of probes for measuring speed and temperature in turbo engines.
