This equipment demonstrates axial flow propeller 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 a submersible pump and an HB100 Hydraulics Bench (separately supplied)
The turbine fixed guide vanes direct water to the runner. Inlet-pressure is indicated by a manometer. 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. The apparatus has a hose for connection to the Hydraulics Bench.
