This is a comprehensive unit for studying the friction losses in pipes, pipe fittings and valves at various flow rates.
All friction loss components are arranged on a water proof panel which is attached to a floor standing steel frame. The apparatus is intended to be used with a Hydraulics Bench (separately supplied) or an outside water supply.
The loss is measured by differential pressure using manometers. Pressure tapping is by valves with quick connection. All pressure taps are connected by flexible hoses to a set of specially arranged manifolds such that differential pressure across any component can be measured simply by opening valves without removing the hoses.
The unit is on a steel frame with adjustable footings.
- Friction losses in straight pipes at various flow rates.
- Friction losses in pipe fittings, valves, sudden expansion and contraction at various flow rates.
