Products

SCITEK has extensive experience of experimental fluid dynamics and of all the major laser diagnostic techniques, particularly in demanding and hostile environments. Where commercially available hardware was not found to be suitable for producing the best possible results, SCITEK developed its own.

Seeding Generators

Our industry leading liquid and powder seeding systems are for use in flows where optical instrumentation is used to measure flow velocity. We have also produced custom seeders for large wind tunnels and for tow tanks.

Sectors

Find out below about some of the different sectors we serve.

Aerospace

Aerospace

At SCITEK we are able to develop a large range of test rigs for Aero Engine Manufacturers to use in the development of their Engines. From emission systems to fuel rigs, spray rigs, combustor test rigs, end of life component inspection and many more.

SCITEK also has an in-house Aero Engine test bed which we can run for clients to assess synthetic aviation fuels, alternative ways of reducing emissions, and gaining a better understanding of emissions from new fuels.

Power Generation

Power Generation

We can develop test rigs for the Power Generation industry such as to carry out safety studies on the use of renewable fuel mixtures. At SCITEK, we are also interested in providing test rigs for the development of Small Modular Reactors (SMR).

Automotive

Automotive

We work with Automotive clients to develop compact turbo machinery engines which drive generators to charge batteries on electric vehicles in order to extend their range.  More recently, we developed a test rig for a client to study the release of hydrogen from automotive fuel tanks.

Pharmaceutical

Pharmaceutical

Our test rigs and services are also relevant to the pharmaceuticals industry. We have helped previous customers improve deodorant aerosol designs by mapping sprays.

Academica

Academica

We have worked with leading universities in the UK and have designed and manufactured test rigs that help them in their research and the services they provide to industry. Examples include a thermal management test rig, a turbine and compressor test rig, emission systems and teaching tools for the National Flying Laboratory Centre.
