Description: Report presenting testing of a centrifugal compressor from a production-type turbojet engine, which was successfully operated as a centripetal refrigeration turbine over a range of rotor speed, inlet pressure, and pressure ratio for full admission. The performance results indicated that partial admission was found to be the most efficient method of turbine control, but throttling at the turbine inlet was easy to apply. When nozzles are used, they should have erosion-resistant surfaces to minimize erosion effects.
