With years of experience, the engineers at CAT are able to design turbines, ancillaries and integrated engine control systems to client’s requirements and specifications. The turbines are compactly designed, boasting excellent thrust-to-weight ratios with a low specific fuel consumption.
All turbine aerodynamic- and thermodynamic cycles are optimized by utilizing turbomachinery CFD software.
CAT turbines are powerful and reliable. They are produced with a fuel atomizing direct kero-start system, making turbine starts fast and reliable. The atomizer system also enables a relighting capability for high altitude starts.
The turbines can operate on Diesel, Kerosene or Jet A1 fuel. All turbines include an Electronic Control Unit (ECU), Ground Support Unit (GSU) and all ancillaries required for engine operation during flight.
All turbines produced by CAT are extensively tested to ensure all products are market ready. CAT turbines are tested at the CAT factory in an experimental test lab fitted with measurement instrumentation.
Turbine related ancillaries, software and asociated electronic control systems are developed in-house by CAT.
