Gas Flow Testing

Gas flow testing is offered at the Gas Blowdown Facility. The facility uses pure nitrogen gas, from a liquid source, to perform high differential pressure flow testing on client’s test articles. The facility capabilities are:

Nitrogen Blowdown Facility

  • Fluid: Nitrogen Gas
  • Gas source volume: 1,125 ft3
  • Gas source maximum pressure: 3,000 psig
  • Test section differential pressures over 2,000 psi
  • Gas flow rates in the range of approximately 0.2 MMSCFD to 310 MMSCFD
  • Flow duration dependent on gas flow rate and test section upstream pressure
  • Temperature: ambient (no active temperature control)
