Flow Lab

What is a Flow Lab?

The AneCom AeroTest flow lab consists of an open wind tunnel which is used for the calibration of flow probes such as kielheads or multi-hole probes.

The flow characteristics of components such as cooled blades, valves, pipes and duct systems can be determined and the effect of the airflow around the sensors (e.g. the recovery effect from temperature sensors) investigated.

Similarity research can be carried out to determine the transferability of results from scaled experimental models.


  • Freeflow tunnel with a jet outlet diameter of 80 mm
  • Mach numbers from 0.1 to almost 1
  • Mass flow up to 2.2 kg/s
  • Pressures up to 9.6 bar
  • Traversing system available with 1 radial and 2 circumferential degrees of freedom
  • Available measurement technology:
    • Mass flow
    • Pressures
    • Temperatures


  • Calibration of the in-house developed sensors – the complete measurement assignment (preparation of a measurement concept, design, production, assembly and calibration of the measurement parameters) carried out from one source
  • Traceability of the measurements by working with calibrated measurement technology
  • High quality due to process-conformed implementation of projects
