Series and Parallel Pumps Demonstration Unit
A small-scale series/parallel pump demonstration unit, comprising of a water reservoir, two pumps, control valves and interconnecting pipework, all mounted on a stainless steel base.
Equipped with electronic measurement sensors for pump head pressure (2 off), suction, flow- rate and water temperature.
Transparent pump volutes for visibility.
Inlet valve throttling demonstrates air release.
Supplied with different easily interchangeable impellers.
Capable of being linked to a PC (not supplied) via a dedicated interface console.
Supplied with software providing full instructions for setting up, operating, calibrating and performing the teaching exercises. Facilities for logging, processing and displaying data graphically.
Full theoretical back-up together with a student questions and answers session.
-Demonstration of either series, parallel or single pump operation
-Measurement of constant-speed pump performance, including production of characteristic curves (one pump)
-Comparison of head-flow characteristics with single pump operation, at inherent speed
-Investigation of impeller styles
-Comparison of student calculations with computer results
