HT 303 COMPACT 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, a pump, a 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.
  • Power output vs speed for various heads and flow rates.
  • Efficiency vs speed for a given head and flow rate.
  • Racing characteristics.

OPTIONAL EQUIPMENT
Part No. Part Name
HD160SA Water brake absorber instead of mechanical brake absorber.
HP 003 Aadvanced inverter for controlling and indicating motor speed as well as for calculating motor input power. Hence pump efficiency at various speeds can be determined.
HP 011A Pressure digital display instead of pressure gauge.
HP 012A Torque digital display instead of spring balance.
HT 011 Electric generator with voltage and current digital display and lamp loads.
HT 303-050

Computer Interface

Sensors with computer interface unit for key data acquisition instead of analog data measuring instruments.

This includes computer interface unit with torque and pressure sensors instead of spring balance and pressure gauge.
