Why We Custom Design Every Turbocharger

Source: Fluid Equipment Development Company (FEDCO)

Turbochargers are simple machines but represent a daunting hydraulic design challenge: 

  • Design the turbine end to create a pressure differential to match the brine flow and pressure duty point;
  • Design the turbine with a best efficiency point (BEP) that matches duty brine flow;
  • Design the pump end with the BEP matching the duty point feed flow;
  • Make sure that the pump impeller absorbs exactly the correct amount of power provided by the turbine at exactly same rate of shaft rotation.
