HB 023F MINI FRANCIS TURBINE
GENERAL DESCRIPTION

This equipment demonstrates Francis turbine characteristics i.e. torque, power and efficiency at different speeds for various heads and flow rates of water. It is to be used with Hydraulics Bench i.e. HB100 or HB100N (separately supplied).

The turbine adjustable guide vanes direct water spirally to the runner. Inlet pressure is indicated by a pressure gauge. Torque is measured by a Prony brake with two spring balances. Speed is indicated on a portable tachometer. Flow rate is measured by the Hydraulics Bench measuring tank.
