HT 301 MINI FRANCIS TURBINE TEST SET
GENERAL DESCRIPTION

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

The unit consists of a storage tank on a steel base, a pump, a mini Francis turbine, a dynamometer, and measuring instruments.

The adjustable guide vanes direct water spirally to the runner.
Instruction manual is also included.

TYPICAL EXPERIMENTS
  • Torque vs speed at various heads and flow rates.
