Fluid Friction Measurement (SMT-FM-24)

  • Fluid Friction Measurement Apparatus allows detailed studies of flow, flow measurement techniques and losses in a wide variety of pipes and fittings. Pressure losses occur during the flow of real fluids due to friction and turbulence (vortices). Pressure losses in pipes, piping elements, fittings and measuring instruments (e.g. flow meter, velocity meter) cause pressure losses and must therefore be considered when designing piping systems. 
  • This unit contains six different pipe sections capable of being shut off individually. The pipe sections are equipped with piping elements such as bends, elbows and branches. In one pipe section, different shut-off devices and measuring objects are installed to determine the flow rate. The measuring objects are made of transparent material and provide excellent insight into the inner structure. The pressure measuring points in the piping system are designed as annular chambers. This creates a largely interference-free pressure measurement. The pressures are measured with tube manometers. 
  • A manometer panel hold transparent manometer tubes. Manometer tubes have engraved scale on back sheet for direct reading of water levels in the tube. Unit has corrasion proof structure. This unit can be operated by Laboratory supply of with any Hydraulic Bench.
