FLUID MECHANICS F1-10 Accessory
F1-26 Series/Parallel Pumps - Issue 19

The introduction of a second pump to the Hydraulic Bench system enables the study of two pump performance, both in series and parallel operation.

Ordering Specification

  • Fixed-speed pump with similar performance characteristics to pump in Hydraulics Bench
  • Mounted on floor-standing plinth with on/off switch
  • Discharge manifold with flow control valve and pressure gauges
  • All hoses and fittings supplied for easy connection to Hydraulics Bench in either series or parallel configuration
  • Educational software available as an option

Description

This accessory comprises a fixed-speed pump assembly and independent discharge manifold interconnected by flexible tubing with quick-release connectors. This auxiliary pump is intended to be used in conjunction with the basic Hydraulics Bench.

The auxiliary pump is mounted on a support plinth, which stands adjacent to the Hydraulics Bench primary pump.
