AneCom AeroTest tests innovative aero engine FAN

For the noise reduction research of leading aero engine manufacturers AneCom AeroTest tested an innovative aero engine FAN in its anechoic chamber. The tests included the examination of several components before and behind the FAN and their impact on dynamical and acoustic characteristics. With the help of the quickly convertible UFFA-Rig (Universal Fan Facility for Acoustics-Rig) the tests could be accomplished within a very short time.

“We are pleased to contribute this way to the noise reduction research of the main aero engine manufacturers”, said Dr. Ahlers, CEO of AneCom AeroTest. According to BDL-President Klaus-Peter Siegloch the manufacturers are in charge: “Noisemakers are obliged to do their best to reduce the exposure of people as much as possible”. The noise reduction at source is the most effective and consequently the most important noise abatement measure, compared with the isolation of the noise source with barriers and the passive noise protection, i.e. structural measures on buildings like sound insulating windows.

AneCom AeroTest GmbH offers with more than 140 employees comprehensive services to customers around the world to support their development with regard to testing of turbo machinery components including the management of complex projects. The portfolio comprises all disciplines necessary to conduct aerodynamic and acoustic tests of compressors, combustors and turbines as well as design & analysis, instrumentation, assembly and test as a turn-key supplier. d in the county of Berlin-Brandenburg
AneCom AeroTest operates a highly productive engineering office and a state-of-the-art compressor test centre with three test beds and related workshops.

Testing of a compressor for a new Indian aero engine
On September 22nd 2008 AneCom AeroTest started the test of a compressor for a national organization from India. The compressor is a substantial component for a new aero engine development in India. During a celebration the director of the national Indian organization gave his approval for testing of the compressor and personally pressed the start button in the test control centre. After a short examination of all operating parameters the
