Sponsors Phase 7 Diffuser-Consortium-Logo

Advanced Diffuser & Volute Design Consortium

The seventh phase of the Advanced Centrifugal Pump and Compressor Consortium for Diffuser & Volute Design is focused on improving diffuser designs to exceed 80% energy recovery. Work is underway but there is still time to join. The program builds upon earlier consortium research and Concepts NREC’s own long history of innovative diffuser and volute design. The current Consortium phase consists of leading international sponsors from across the global turbomachinery industry.

“We were working well with the OEM but even with our combined efforts we were struggling to get a critical compressor to pass performance on their test stand.  Although I'd never directly done business with Concepts NREC I was familiar with them and their capability so I chose to contact them when I came to the realization that we needed some objective insight. Concepts NREC fielded my cold call and immediately engaged their expertise in a complex problem that was also challenged by schedule constraints.  They provided increased understanding of an already complex CFD which resulted in increased confidence that the proposed solution would succeed on the next test stand attempt (which it did!).  We are pleased to have had the help of Concepts NREC and now have a well-performing compressor in our process.”

Part 2: Hydrogen Turbomachinery Design
by Mark R. Anderson, Chief Technical Officer, Concepts NREC
Hydrogen is attracting a lot of interest in different circles these days from: propulsion, to energy storage, to personal transportation. The most obvious benefit of hydrogen fuel is a total lack of carbon in the exhaust products. This is rare for a fuel that’s a fairly high energy substance to begin with. More specifically, its high energy in terms of energy per unit of weight but somewhat less so in terms of volume.

Part 1: Hydrogen and Turbomachinery
by Dr. David Schowalter, Sr. Director, Global Software Sales
Because of its promise as a non-polluting fuel, hydrogen is currently a very popular topic among the energy and turbomachinery communities. If hydrogen is reacted with pure oxygen, the thermal energy release is significant, and water is the only by-product. This highly exothermic reaction was used to get humanity to the moon. Of course, nitrous oxides (NOx) can be released if hydrogen is burned in air. If, on the other hand, the energy from the reaction is converted to heat and electricity in a fuel cell, then only water vapor is discharged. In addition, when pressurized in a tank, hydrogen is an easily transportable fuel, and so is desirable for transportation.
