The Series/Parallel Pumps unit, "FME12", designed by EDIBON, allows the study of the coupling between two series/parallel centrifugal pumps, obtaining the characteristic curves as well as the calculation of the water flow rate.
It consists of a pump of similar characteristics to the one in the Hydraulics Bench (FME00) or the Basic Hydraulic Feed System (FME00/B).
This unit has three Bourdon-type manometers: two of manometric pressure and one of absolute pressure. The absolute pressure manometer has been placed at the pump input the other two at the discharge and at the discharge accessory supplied with the unit.
The accessory has a flow-regulating valve. Moreover, for the parallel connection, a Y-shape accessory is supplied with two ball-valves. This accessory is connected to both pumps and to the discharge device.
The unit includes an easy connection system for the installation of pumps in series and in parallel.
- Water flow calculation.
- H (Q) curve obtaining of a centrifugal pump.
