  • Measurement of the electrical power to the motor, determination of the yield
  • Determination of pressure losses along the suction line
  • Using a column multimanometer for pressure measurements
  • Measuring pressures, flow rates and speeds to several points of the pipe
  • Trace the test section velocity profile with a Pitot tube
  • Verification of Bernoulli’s equation
  • Identification of aerodynamic lines
