Valve Cavitation Research Centre

Valve Cavitation Research Centre (VCRC) is established during August 2017 which is indented for carrying out FL test , cavitation performance test on control valves and associated research works. It is designed for pipe diameter of 200mm with a maximum flow rate of 800m3 /hr. The facility consists of Four Horizontal pumps with intake from the sump of Large Water Flow Laboratory.

The salient features of this facility are as under:

1. Flow Medium: Water
2. Maximum discharge: 800m3/hr
3. Pipe Line Size: 200mm
4. Type of Flow : Direct Pumping
5. Head : 350m of Water Column
6. Type of Drive : Electrical Motor, VFD
7. Power : DG Sets, 1250KVA 2Nos
8. Flow measurement : Using reference EMF with an accuracy better than +/- 0.5 %
9. Dp measurement: Using Dp transmitter with an accuracy better than +/- 0.5 %
