FLOTEK Wind Tunnel Features


  • Efficient 3 Phase AC Motors – GDJ has recently upgraded form outdated DC motors to New Premium Efficient 3 Phase AC motors. By increasing the efficiency of the motor this greatly reduces the impact to the environment from operating this equipment by reducing the amount of energy required to operate the wind tunnel.The A/C motor controller is an ABB VFD (variable frequency drive) Torque Sensing Controller. The new torque sensing features allows for a much tighter control of the fan speed of the motor. This allows for less fluctuation of the test section velocity at a set speed.
  • Industrial Grade Construction – The FLOTEK wind tunnel is constructed with a heavy-duty steel base frame. The body of the wind tunnel is constructed from 11 Gauge (1/8” steel) to reduce vibration and provide many years of service.The motor mount has also been recently upgraded to reduce noise and vibration in the wind tunnel. Thus, making the wind tunnel more user friendly in the Lab.
