MP 115 COMPACT CENTRIFUGAL FAN TEST SET
GENERAL DESCRIPTION

    This is a bench top unit for studying the small centrifugal fan characteristics.

    The unit consists of a small industrial centrifugal fan with a backward blade impeller and a motor on a steel base, an advanced inverter, inlet and outlet ducts, and measuring instruments. An interchangeable forward blade impeller is provided for comparison of operating characteristics.

TYPICAL EXPERIMENTS
  • Flow rate vs pressure.
  • Fan input, output and overall efficiency.
  • Effect of speed on fan performance.
  • Comparison of backward and forward blade impellers.
