What is Draft Tube ? Describe its Functions and Classifications

What is Draft Tube ? Describe its Functions and Classifications

In hydraulic turbines, the component draft tube is very significant. In impulse turbines, the flow energy of the fluid is converted to kinetic energy by means of the nozzle. In  Reaction Turbines, part of the flow energy is converted to K.E but remaining energy is still the pressure energy. Draft tubes are used in Reaction […]
