Reciprocating Pump Test Rig Description and Specifications for Lab Tenders
Reciprocating Pump Test Rig
RECIPROCATING PUMP TEST RIG (VARIABLE SPEED)
present Reciprocating Pump Test Rig is a self-contained unit operated
on closed circuit basis containing a sump tank. The set-up consists of a
Double acting, Single Cylinder Reciprocating Pump coupled with a DC
Motor Power input to the DC Motor is varied by means of a Thyristor
controlled DC Drive to vary the RPM of motor. A RPM Indicator with
Proximity sensor indicates the RPM of Pump. Flow of water is measured by
using measuring tank and stop watch. Vacuum gauge is fitted on suction
line and Pressure gauge is fitted on delivery line to measure the
To determine total head, overall efficiency, pump efficiency and volumetric efficiency of the reciprocating pump.
To plot Graph: Head vs Discharge Pump efficiency vs Discharge.
