Study of the characteristics of a centrifugal pump
Coupling two pumps in series / parallel
- 150 L PE tank with removable lid and draining valve.
- SS centrifugal pump: measurement of the power consumed and variable speed.
- SS centrifugal pump and transparent flange.
- Serial coupling selection valve.
- Vacuum Gauges.
- 2 flowmeters.
- Vacuum gauges.
Dim : 210 x 70 x 225 cm – 150 kg
In industrial installations, fluid transport/flow in pipes, reactors, and filters, etc.
requires energy transferred to the fluid. This energy is supplied by pumps which
enable the different pressure losses in the circuit to be overcome.
Choosing the right pump and right pump technology is therefore essential.
The main objective of this pump study bench is to familiarize the operator
with the various notions associated with using a centrifugal pump, and more
particularly that of pressure (head) available at the pump output.
Study of the two self-contained centrifugal pumps in suction operation
Plot the characteristic graph at various speeds
Determine yield electrical consumption/hydraulic power
Study of the pump coupling methods
Coupling in series
Coupling in parallel
Study a motor pump assembly in suction operation (optional)
Determination of characteristic TDH (total dynamic head) graphs against flow rate
Determination of yields (electrical consumption/motor torque/hydraulic power)
