HT201 MINI PELTON TURBINE TEST SET
GENERAL DESCRIPTION

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

    The unit consists of a storage tank on a steel base, a pump, a turbine, a dynamometer, and measuring instruments. The adjustable nozzle direct a water jet to the runner buckets.

TYPICAL EXPERIMENTS
  • 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.
