Development Practices of the Pump Performance Test Bed for Agricultural Sprayers


Article Preview

Based on the development practice of the pump performance test bed for the agricultural sprayer, a new program is proposed to cover the integrated mechanical structure of the pump performance test bed. Analysis was given to the various performance parameters of the pump test with regard to their testing methods, and specific methods of work performance test and inhalation performance test were also discussed to explore the test results. Finally, the issues that need to be focused were raised on the design and manufacture of pump performance test for the sprayer.
