The pump test station at HYDRO-VACUUM S.A. is the largest and most modern unit of its kind in Poland. The parameters of this facility allow testing of pumps with a capacity of up to 8000 m3/h, head up to 1600 m and motor power up to 2000 KW at 6000 V, 1000 V, 500 V, 400 V.

HYDRO-VACUUM S.A. is an innovative, modern factory that is a leader in the production of pumps and pump systems in Poland. Its research and technical-technological potential allows it not only to design and manufacture a range of modern pumps, but also to comprehensively carry out research, repair and testing orders.

ANSYS CFX/CFD software for 3D numerical calculations allows analysis and optimization of pump flow channel shapes, aimed at achieving the highest energy efficiency. On the basis of the virtual 3D model, it is possible to make a prototype using classical or rapid prototyping "Rapid Prototyping" methods. The fully functional prototype is subjected to verification measurements at the test station, where not only the basic energy characteristics of the pumps are determined, but also cavitation and thermal imaging tests are conducted. Such an action gives the opportunity to quickly analyze the deviations of the parameters of the tested pumps and make possible corrective actions. The analysis of the obtained measurements allows for the optimal configuration of the pumping unit, which is important for the energy efficiency of liquid transport at the target users. An additional advantage of coupling the results of real measurements and CFD numerical analyses is the ability to diagnose the causes of improper pump operation in the pumping system and to indicate possible corrective measures, eliminating the impact of an improperly designed system on the increased failure rate and low energy efficiency of the installed pumping units.
