Detailed Pumps and Compressors

PumpsBanner

GT-SUITE is an ideal tool for modeling pumps and compressors whether it be for use in system level analysis or modeling detail flow behavior. Pumps and compressors are used across a wide range of applications in GT-SUITE including hydraulic, fuel, lubrication, cooling, transmission, HVAC, and aftertreatment systems. This machinery can be studied in detail to predict performance, flow and pressure pulsations, NVH issues, friction, and support bearing performance. Many types of pumps and compressors can be modeled including positive and variable displacement, gerotor, vane, external gear, piston, swashplate, scroll, screw, crescent, roots blower, and more.
