Fluid Mechanics and Gas Dynamics

Starting with sound engineering performance, HOERBIGER has always devoted itself in Compression Technology to fluid mechanics, thermodynamics and gas dynamics.

Today, developers - with the aid of computers – use computations and simulations to analyze the impact of gas flows on key compressor components.

Having knowledge of the physical forces that act on the components and systems, the resistance characteristics and wear dynamics of gases and liquids can be simulated.

"Our goal: maximum efficiency in the energetically optimized operation of compressors and rotary equipment."
