Sci-tech Gas Turbine Engine Test Set-up Model GFM 85 includes engine that is the compact turbine engine, comprising a single stage radial compressor, combustion chamber and an axial flow turbine.

Item Description

The engine has been mounted into a sturdy metal frame that holds it firmly. A tough, transparent polycarbonate screen is fitted for safety while the engine is running. Engine Thrust, Temperatures & Air flow rate are measured by high accuracy sensors.
The engine is controlled from software, which provides users with a friendly graphical interface for real time monitoring and operation.
The engine can produce maximum Thrust of 80 N & maximum speed 160,000 RPM. The unit is provided with data display and acquisition system with necessary instrumentation. The engine runs on different fuels like Jet A / Jet A1 / Paraffin.
