SR215 Two-Stage Axial Fan teaching aid equipment Hydrodynamics Lab Equipment
Axial fans are connected in series in plants to increase the pressure. In theory, connecting two fans in series doubles the pressure increase.
The trainer allows the investigation of a two-stage axial fan. A measuring device is used to determine the pressure and velocity distribution.
The trainer includes a measuring section with two identical axial fans. The carefully provided nozzle contour and a flow straightener at the air inlet ensure a uniform velocity distribution with little turbulence in the measuring section. The rotors are equipped with individual adjustable blades to change the angle The filter is equipped with outlet guide vane systems. The guide mechanisms redirect the angular momentum of the outflow in the axial direction and allow an increase in pressure. A pipe bend may optionally be installed to rotate the flow at the outlet of the Measuring section. One of the fans can be removed from the measuring section so that the remaining fan can be studied in individual operation.
The flow rate is measured via an inlet nozzle.
