Industrial Compressors, Expanders & Turbochargers

Industrial compressors and expanders (typically, a type of turbine used for energy recovery) play an important role in a range of industries, such as chemical process, oil and gas, HVAC, and industrial gas production. Turbochargers are used in transportation and energy production to improve overall engine performance. Turbochargers, industrial compressors and expanders consist of a compressor and a turbine; similar engineering tools are used in design and analysis of all these.

As organizations strive to meet increasingly stringent customer requirements related to compressors, expanders and turbochargers, they can benefit greatly from the wide range of engineering simulation tools that ANSYS offers.

Engineering simulation tools from ANSYS provide high-fidelity advanced physics that turbine designers need, whether the application is new machine design or machine rerating. The suite’s flexibility means the tools can be applied for operation in interactive mode or in batch mode within the design system of the manufacturer or consultant. The technologies are integrated within a common fluid dynamics and electronics software for which ANSYS is well known.
