F865 Two Stage Compressor Test Unit

F865 Two Stage Compressor Test Unit

The F865 reciprocating air compressor provides a useful introduction to both heat engine theory and fundamental thermodynamic analysis.

The measured parameters also give students experience of a wide range of instruments and measurement techniques.

A free standing, belt driven, two stage reciprocating air compressor that may be operated as a single stage, two stage or two stage with and without intercooling system.

An intake vessel reduces intake air pulsations and a high pressure air receiver is connected to the compressor discharge.

Intake and discharge air pressures are measured together with the air flow rate and , motor drive power

F865 Two Stage Compressor Test Unit

A free standing, belt driven, two stage reciprocating air compressor that may be operated as a single stage, two stage or two stage with and without intercooling system.

An intake vessel reduces intake air pulsations and a high pressure air receiver is connected to the compressor discharge.

Intake and discharge air pressures are measured together with the air flow rate and , motor drive power.

Integral duplex thermocouples record all relevant system temperatures and are connected to a multi-way selector switch and digital temperature indicator.

An optional computerised data acquisition upgrade is available that allows all relevant system parameters to be automatically recorded on a PC.

The unit is supplied with a detailed experimental operating and maintenance manual giving example experimental results and sample calculations.

Accessories and spares for two years normal operation together with a full two year warranty are also included as standard.
