AMT Titan

2007 : The Titan has been constructed from a single radial compressor and an axial flow turbine stage.

The time required for the Titan to spool up and down is also positively influenced by the low mass of the axial turbine wheel, taking less than 4 seconds from min. to max. rpm and only 3 seconds from max. rpm to min. rpm.

The combustion chamber is of the annular type, which is fitted with a unique "low pressure" fuel system. Both the front and the rear hybrid bearings are lubricated and cooled by the fuel system, and therefore the motor requires no separate lubrication system or oil tank.

The turbine is protected from misuse and accidental damage by means of a microprocessor based controller (ECU) which regulates operation of the engine within pre programmed software limits. The ECU is fully automatic and needs no adjustment by the operator.
