Looking for Turbo stuff.. Yet another odd project..
« on: April 17, 2006, 06:34:39 PM »
I am looking for some turbo/turbine parts, pretty big stuff too...

Looking for a compressor wheel with an outside diameter of 6.325 inches (max?) with the small end diameter
in the range of or machinable to 3.365 to 3.893 inches.

Also looking for Turbine wheel (hot end) 6.250 to 6.350 inches, small end 4.125 to 4.250 or machinable
to similar dimensions.

This application is not for a standard turbo and parts will probably need to be machined. It is something custom
that I am working on. It has to survive 50,000 rpm plus ! :'(

If you happen to have access to a pile of big turbos of any kind there might be something there I can use....

Dave....

Dave,
Have you checked out the DD 2stroke page at Yahoo?
That sounds, from the specs that your looking for something from the WWII Fairbanks Morse or the 3500HP DD.
If you look at some of the antique Submarines or Locomotives, you may have a chance of finding a place to start.
Garret will spec any turbo you want, but they are pricey
A/R will too, but they waqnt to do it for even more for a one off.
Talk to Carroll Shelby enterprizes, they are good at off the wall stuff.
Good Luck
Dallas

Starting to look like a microhydro generator wheel, but I think 50K revs is a bit high, and if I recall correctly, you're in FL, which doesn't have enough elevation to support microhydro.

Maybe steam generation? Possibly solar powered steam generation?
