Testing Capabilities

Invercon has access to state-of-the art testing facilities. This facilities include a low turbulence wind tunnel (4 ft. x 5 ft. test section, V = 200 ft/sec), a low cost wind tunnel for fast prototyping testing (24 in x 36 in, V = 120 ft/sec), and an adverse environment hover stand (100 RPM, 9 ft. diameter). Icing conditions and rain erosion can be reproduced in the rotor stand facility.

 

A sample of testing facilities is shown in the video an images on this site. Invercon also has the capabilities to perform rotor icing testing with controlled LWC, MVD and temperature parameters for evaluation of deicing systems.
