Description

The Pelton turbine is a type of impulse turbine. Such type turbines convert the pressure
energy of water into kinetic energy entirely in the distributor. During the conversion, the
water jet is accelerated in a nozzle and directed onto the blades of the Pelton wheel
tangentially. The water jet is redirected by approximately 180° in the blades. The impulse of
the water jet is transmitted to the Pelton wheel.
This ESOLS product consists of a Pelton wheel mounted in a corrosion-resistant enclosure. A
transparent PMMA front panel allows students to see the turbine working.
A simple mechanical brake and spring balance assembly attached to the shaft of the Pelton
wheel applies a variable mechanical load (torque). Students use this with the speed (from the
optional tachometer) to find power absorbed by the turbine. A gauge measures inlet
pressure.
This unit can be operated by Laboratory supply of with any Hydraulic Bench.
