:Procedure
1. Make sure that the pump is turned off. Open the pump intake valve fully. Close the pump discharge valve. Start the pump and adjust the power controller to 100% (maximum pump speed). Open the discharge valve fully and allow all of the air bubbles to exit the system. 2. Close the discharge valve to correspond to the condition of no flow. Adjust the power controller to give a motor speed of 20 Hz. When the readings as indicated in the boxes on the diagram at the bottom of the monitor are sufficiently steady, select Take Sample. This represents the first point on the characteristic curve. DO NOT leave the pump in this condition for very long or the water will heat up, change the viscosity and invalidate the results. 3. Open the discharge valve a small amount so there is an increase in the flow rateas indicated in the boxes at the bottom of the monitor. Adjust the dial on the power controller to keep the motor speed at 20 Hz. When the readings are steady, again select Take

Sample. Open the discharge valve in ½ turn increments, adjust the power and select Take Sample so that 10 to 15 data points are taken. The final point will correspond to the discharge valve being fully open. When sample collection has been completed for a motor speed of .4 .20 Hz 5. When finished turn the power controller to 0%. Turn the power switch to the console and the power strip to off. Unplug the console and power strip from their power sources
