Measuring Instruments and Equipment

Here you can find an overview of the experimental measurement devices and methods available at the IMVT.

Validation of theroretical models via experiments is indispensable. For that reason the IMVT has a large number of different measurement devices at its disposal. They allow the characterization of particle systems, flowfields, spray atomizers, filtration elements and more.
