Instrumented Benchtop Rotor & Reciprocating Compressor
RK-4 Rotor Kit / RCK-1 Reciprocating Compressor Kit
The RK-4 Rotor Kit and RCK-1 Reciprocating Compressor Kit are benchtop machines that demonstrate large machine behavior during steady-state and transient conditions.
Both machines can be instrumented with our transducers and System 1* software.
The RK-4 demonstrates unbalance, rub, and oil-induced instabilities for a multiplane machine with fluid film bearings.
The RCK-1 is a single-cylinder, single-stage, dual-action compressor that demonstrates valve and piston ring leaks and mechanical drive train wear.
