Gear pumps belong to the group of positive displacement pumps with a continuous flow. Two counter-rotating gears transport the medium. The transported medium is between the housing and the tooth spaces. The pulsation-free flow increases linearly with speed. These pumps are particularly suitable for the generation of medium-high pressure at low flow rates.
The experimental unit provides the basic experiments to get to know the operating behaviour and the most important characteristic variables of gear pumps.
HM 286 features a closed circuit with a tank and a gear pump with variable speed via frequency converter. The pump gears are mounted in a transparent housing and can be observed during operation. Flow rate and head are adjusted via a needle valve and an overflow valve. Oil is used as the medium.
The experimental unit is fitted with sensors for pressure and temperature. The oval wheel meter is especially used for the accurate flow measurement of viscous liquids. Oval wheel meters operate on the positive displacement principle with two precise oval gear wheels. The microprocessor-based measuring technique is well protected in the housing. The measured values are transmitted directly to a PC via USB where they can be analysed using the software included.
All the advantages of software-supported experiments with operation and evaluation are offered by the GUNT software and the microprocessor.
