and cost-effectiveness, this apparatus is highly demanded around the
- Francis Turbine is a reaction turbine, which was developed by an English born American Engineer Sir J. B. Francis.
water enters the turbine through the outer periphery of the runner in
the radial direction and leaves the runner in axial direction and hence
it is called a mixed flow turbine.
- As the water flows to the runner, a part of pressure energy goes on changing into kinetic energy.
- Thus the water through the runner is under pressure.
- The runner is completely enclosed in an air tight casing and the casing & runner is always full of water.
- The present set-up consists of a runner. The water is fed to the turbine by means of Centrifugal Pump, radially to the runner.
- The runner is directly mounted on one end of a central SS shaft and other end is connected to a brake arrangement.
circular window of the turbine casing is provided with a transparent
acrylic sheet for observation of flow on to the runner.
runner assembly is supported by thick cast iron pedestal.Load is applied
to the turbine with the help of brake arrangement so that the
efficiency of the turbine can be calculated.
- A draught tube is
fitted on the outlet of the turbine. The set-up is complete with guide
mechanism. Pressure and Vacuum gauges are fitted at the inlet and outlet
of the turbine to measure the total supply head on the turbine.
