Gear Pump Test Rig
The setup is designed to study the performance of gear pump.
Set up consists of a gear pump having a pair of meshed gears coupled with electrical motor, supply tank, measuring tank & pipe fittings for closed loop oil circulation. Pressure and Vacuum gauges are connected on delivery and suction side of pump for the purpose of measurement.
The flow rate of water is measured using measuring tank and stop watch provided
To determine overall efficiency and pump efficiency of the gear pump.
To plot Head vs. Discharge, Pump efficiency vs. Discharge
Provide 230 +/- 10 VAC, 50 Hz, single phase electric supply with proper earthing. (Neutral – Earth voltage less than 5 VAC.),
5A, three pin socket with switch for pump.
