Droplet erosion set-up

Details: Degradation resulting from impingement of high-velocity liquid droplets is of significant concern for steam turbine, aircraft engine, helicopter blades etc. Our in-house built set-up is capabale of generating jets having velocities of the order of 200 m/s. It can be used to test potential materials and coatings at differnt operating condtions.
