Series and Parallel Configuration of Pumps



  1. Investigation of series and parallel configuration of pumps
  2. Two identical centrifugal pumps
  3. Transparent tank as intake tank
  4. Overflow in the tank ensures constant suction head
  5. Ball valves used to switch between series and parallel operation
  6. Manometers at inlet and outlet of each pump
  7. Flow rate determined by base module FM 100
  8. Water supply via FM 100 or via laboratory supply
  9. Technical data
