MP 111 MULTI STAGE CENTRIFUGAL AIR COMPRESSOR DEMONSTRATION UNIT
GENERAL DESCRIPTION

    This is a bench top unit for studying the multi stage centrifugal air compressor characteristics with data analysis by computer.

The unit consists of a small multi stage air compressor with a motor on a steel base, inlet and outlet ducts, sensors and software.

Speed control is by a variac.

TYPICAL EXPERIMENTS
  • Flow rate vs pressure.
  • Compressor input, output, and overall efficiency.
  • Effect of speed on compressor performance.
