Twin Centrifugal Pump Configurations

The system comprises 2 identical centrifugal pumps that are connected together via pipes. Manual valves make it possible to switch quickly between series and parallel operation. Manometers indicate the pressure at all important points in the pipe system. The pump characteristics can be recorded. The hydraulic power output of the pumps can be determined.

The water supply and volumetric flow rate measurement are provided. Alternatively,the arrangement can also be operated from the laboratory mains supply.
