Echo-PIV system was applied to measure the velocity fields of a pump system inside the nuclear reactor model. The scale-downed model of pump system driven by a motor was built for this study. 2D instantaneous velocity vector fields of the downstream region of impeller were obtained. The flow rate was calculated and compared with the result from the flow meter. From this study, the feasibility of echo-PIV for studying the opaque flow in the fluid machinery was shown.
