HT 701 MINI PELTON/FRANCIS TURBINE TEST SET
GENERAL DESCRIPTION

    This is a self contained bench top set of Pelton and Francis turbines, designed for studying the turbine characteristics under various flow rates and heads.

    The unit consists of a pump, a storage tank on a steel base, a Pelton and   a Francis turbines connected in parallel, a dynamometer for each turbine, and measuring instruments.

TYPICAL EXPERIMENTS

Each turbine can be tested on the following

  • Torque vs speed at various heads and flow rates.
  • Power output vs speed for various heads and flow rates.
  • Efficiency vs speed for a given head and flow rate.
  • Racing characteristics.
