Demonstration Pelton Turbine.
Demonstration Pelton Turbine Technical Description A characteristic of impulse turbines is the complete conversion of pressure into kinetic energy at the exit of the supply nozzle. The turbine consists of a housing, which is transparent on one side, the Pelton bucket wheel and an adjustable supply nozzle. The turbine is loaded with a belt brake. The torque is measured using spring balances located on the braking belt. The manometer fitted to the unit measures the water pressure applied. The pressurised water supply and flow rate measurement is provided . Alternatively, the arrangement can also be operated from the laboratory mains supply.
