Our Methods in R&D

  • Software for pressure vessel construction, e.g. AD, ASME
  • 3D-CAD
  • Multi-focus stereo microscopy, e.g. for researching filter media
  • Gravimetric determination of amount of dirt with precision scales
  • Online particle count for oil and water
  • Mobile screw spindle pump 8 bar / 16 m³/h with FI
  • Flow simulation: Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) with commercial and open source software
    • Calculation of transient flow behaviour for optimising e.g. back flushing processes and for investigating damage due to pressure variations
    • Particle simulations for optimising filter media, cyclones and filter housings
    • Calculation of stationary flow conditions for determining pressure losses and for optimising the technical flow of filter housings
  • Structure analysis: Finite-Element Method (FEM)
    • Heat transfer and thermal expansion calculation
    • Tests and optimisation of prototypes
    • Contact analysis
    • Determination of force-deformation characteristics
    • Determination of natural frequencies (modal analysis)
    • Optimisation of component and material behaviour
    • Calculation of component deformations taking non-linear component and material behaviour into account
