This is a Kaplan turbine and this test rig shows the construction and working of Kaplan turbine. Rope brake dynamometer is used to measure the output of turbine. Pressure gauge and orificemeter are used to measure the input of turbine. The system is closed circuit.
This Kaplan Turbine Test Rig 150mm size to develop 1 KW at 1250 RPM with a flow of about 1250 lpm at 15 meters supply head.
Supply pump set 100x100mm size, 1500 lpm at 10 meter head suitable for supplying water to the above turbine.
Sump Tank: Fiber glass lined MS Tank to store sufficient water for independent circulation through the unit experimentation and arrange within the floor space of main unit.
Capacity 300 Liter.
Rope Bake Dynamometer is used to measure the output. Spring balance and dead weights are used to measure the load. Runner Diameter 220mm
Orificemeter of 66mm is used to measure the flow rate of water through pressure gauge difference.
Discharge control valve, by-pass valve of 4" (ISI mark) used to control the flow rate of water.
Spring Balance 25 Kg & 10 Kg (Salter Make)
Pressure Gauge of 4 kg/cm2 is used to measure the pressure head.
Rigid MS frame work compactly fitted with all the above items as a self-sufficient package unit suitable for operation without any foundation.
Switch and starter suitable for above motor pump set mounted on the control panel board.
