The Centerpiece of Wind Tunnels: The Fan
For decades, TLT-Turbo has supplied turnkey wind tunnel solutions to clients worldwide. From 2007, this offering changed to focus solely on the fan itself as the key component of a wind tunnel system. Our clients benefit from our extensive experience and expertise in wind tunnel systems. This expertise allows TLT-Turbo to provide a tailored solution because we understand how the separate components interact with each other.
Customization & Expertise
Every fan and its project planning are adapted to its specific installation. Standalone drive systems with operation, control and monitoring systems and their connection to the parent digital control system also forms part of our portfolio. Our experience with the supply and installation of turnkey wind tunnels means that we are able to recognize the significance of specific wind tunnel features to the design of the fan.

Client Support Services
We provide support at every point of your ventilation system lifecycle. We offer planning and design support at the start of your project to ensure that the final system meets your precise requirements and meets every safety standard. This is followed by manufacturing, transport, assembly supervision and commissioning services. We take aerodynamic acceptance measures to ensure that the system is functioning optimally.
TLT-Turbo also offers reconstruction and optimization of existing systems.

The use of composites reduces the weight of the rotor and lowers the moment of inertia. This allows for quick start up, acceleration and stopping of the fan which reduces power consumption. Additionally composite fan blades offer advanced damage tolerance. For wind tunnel fans we predominantly use carbon fibre blades that are designed, tested and manufactured in-house.
