HM 365.32 Turbine Supply Unit Show data sheet (pdf file) Print page
Technical Description

  Together with HM 365.31, the HM 365.32 supply unit can be used to operate a Pelton or Francis turbine, whose characteristic operating behaviours can then be investigated.
  The separate turbines from HM 365.31 are placed on the working surface of the supply unit and screwed in place. The turbine is connected to the supply unit via a hose. After the water has flowed through the turbine, it flows back into the tank. Thanks to its closed water circuit, the trainer is independent from the mains water supply and can be used in mobile applications. The flow rate and/or the pressure present at the turbine can be adjusted by a flow control valve.
  The supply unit is equipped with sensors for pressure and flow rate. The measured values are displayed digitally. The mechanical turbine output is measured via the HM 365 Universal Drive and Brake Unit, which is also required. The drive unit is used to adjust constant speeds or torques, allowing experiments to be carried out in different operating modes. All measured values are transmitted directly to a PC via USB. The data acquisition software is included. The software for data acquisition and visualisation makes the experiments especially clear and enables fast execution of experiments with reliable results.
  The well-structured instructional material sets out the fundamentals and provides a step-by-step guide through the experiments.
