PIGNAT Centrifugal Pumps Study – BEP3000


SKU: BEP3000 Category: Tag:


Study two centrifugal pumps mounted on a hydraulic circuit that can be heated or put under vacuum

Study a motor pump:

  • Determine characteristic TDH (total dynamic head) graphs against flow rate for different wheel diameters, different rotation speeds, suction and load operation
  • Define yields (electrical consumption/motor torque/hydraulic power).

Study a self-contained centrifugal pump:

  • Determine the characteristic TDH graph as a function of the flow rate at a set speed

Study of the pump coupling methods:

  • Coupling in series or parallel

Observation of the cavitation:

  • Cavitation due to heating, negative pressure or intake throttling
