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

The unit consists of a storage tank, a pump, a Kaplan turbine, a dynamometer, and measuring instruments. The adjustable guide vanes direct water helically to the runner.

Instruction manual is also included.

  • 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.
 - Construction
  • Fixed blade metal runner
  • Non corrosion metal casing with adjustable guide vanes with transparent window to observe runner and guide vane position
