FM53 – Plunger Pump Demonstration Unit

 

FM53 – Plunger Pump Demonstration Unit

The FM53 replicates a plunger pump as used in industry to pump small quantities of liquid at high pressures. Electronic sensors measure the instantaneous cylinder pressure within the pump, the pump displacement and the cumulative flow.

Description

The FM53 replicates a plunger pump as used in industry to pump small quantities of liquid at high pressures. Electronic sensors measure the instantaneous cylinder pressure within the pump, the pump displacement and the cumulative flow.

The plunger or ram pump is a positive displacement pump and is used for pumping small quantities of liquid at high pressure. It is similar to a piston pump except that the sealing gland is at one end of the cylinder.

The reciprocating motion of the plunger gives an uneven flow, although the inclusion of a damping vessel can reduce this effect. Priming is unnecessary.

  • Measurement during each pump cycle of:
    – Plunger displacement
    – Cylinder pressure
    – Pump outlet pressure
  • On-line p-V diagram displays
  • Measurement of volumetric efficiency
  • Measuring the effect on pump performance of:
    – Sprung loading valve or needle valve
    – Adjusting the outlet loading valve
    – The inclusion of a pulsation damper vessel

The ArmSOFT software enables the operator to control the fan speed 0 to 100%. Feedback from the sensors is then displayed in real time for the end user with simultaneous data logging.

The data trend is also displayed graphically in real time and can be exported to another platform such as Excel for further analysis.
