AXIAL FLOW AIR COMPRESSOR TEST RIG

RANGE OF EXPERIMENTS TO BE CARRIED OUT:
1. To study all components/Accessories used in Axial Flow Air Compressor.
2. To study & determine Isentropic Work, Actual Work, Volumetric Efficiency, Isentropic Efficiency & Free Air
Delivery at different delivery pressure.
3. To Plot Volumetric Efficiency/Isentropic Efficiency against Delivery Pressure & comment on the nature of the plot.
TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION :
The test rig consists of Air Compressor with an air suction tank, is fitted with an orifice at one end & other end connected to cylinder. The orifice pressure tapping is connected to one limb of U -Tube manometer on panel. Thermocouple T1, T2, T3 reads temperature at inlet ( T1 ) outlet Temperature ( T2 ) & ( T3 ) records temperature of air in receiver.
Energy meter is used to record the power input to motor & in turn the work required for compression. The control panel houses starter for motor, main switch, Temperature Indicator .
