ABSTRACT

A study on the hydram performance focusing on such parameters as the air chamber pressure P2m of an air vessel and the delivery flow rate q was recently done at the University of Dar es Salaam in an attempt to model them for their easy prediction. Both theoretical and experimental studies were conducted in addressing the problem and the outcome had been the establishment of two important model expressions which could utilize the basic hydram operating variables like the drive head H, length of drive pipe L and the beats f of a hydram pump. It was also found that the tuning of the hy-dram pump in order to acquire the best performance could easily be attained by mainly using the beats variable which was of no cost implications on the system.
