This paper discusses the configuration of v arious types of compressors with epitrochoidal geo metry. Two types using an epitrochoidal rotor and a st ationary outer envelope were selected for developme nt. Proofof-concept models have been built and teste d. Proven advantages of these compressors are presented, including pressure time curves, torque curves… (More)
