A motor-driven gear pump, mounted on a stainless steel plinth with a water reservoir and pipework for continuous circulation. The pump head and the water reservoir are manufactured from clear acrylic for maximum visibility.
A manually operated valve at the pump outlet allows control of the flow and a pressure relief valve protects the operator and the equipment. Electronic sensors measure the pump outlet pressure, the flow rate and the water temperature.
The pump speed is accurately controlled by an advanced electronic inverter within the (an essential accessory). This inverter also calculates the torque produced at the motor drive shaft, allowing the power used by the pump to be derived. This is also provides the conditioning electronics for the sensors and allows their readings to be displayed on the computer software. Connections to a single multiway connector for the sensors and a connector for the pump motor drive.
The equipment is provided with advanced education and data logging software. See the software section of this datasheet for further details.
