Series and Parallel Pump System

The series and parallel pump system provides hands on knowledge of how pump systems work. The system provides a way to collect head and flow rate data for a pair of centrifugal pumps in operation, allowing students to create pump curves. Students can then compare these pump curves to theoretical predictions in several scenarios (single pump, varying speed, series flow, parallel flow, etc.).
