With the Axial Turbine, "FME27", designed by EDIBON, it is possible to study and to understand the axial flow turbines which, unlike the radial flow turbines, the working fluid is parallel to the axis of rotation.
This unit consists of an axial turbine in miniature with eight inclined nozzles at 20° and 30° degrees with respect to the perpendicular direction at the rotating axis.
The pallets of the turbine runner are clearly visible through the transparent tank.
A band brake connected to one load cell varying the load given to the turbine by means of a connection device.
- Flow calculation.
- Determination of the discharge coefficient of the nozzle.
- Determination of the curve N (Q,n), Pm (Q, n) and h (Q, n), (20° nozzle).
- Determination of the curve N (Q,n), Pm (Q, n) and h (Q, n), (30° nozzle).
- Adimensional analysis.
