Losses In Pipe Friction Apparatus
These tapings are connected to a manometer bank incorporating a manifold with air bleed valve. The circuit and manometer are attached to a support framework. A flow control valve permits variation of flow rate through the circuit. This apparatus is designed to introduce students to major flow losses in Pipes.Pressure tapings are incorporated so that the head loss characteristics of each fitting may be measured. The unit consists of Major and minor losses associated with pipe flow in piping networks helps in determining the pumping power requirements, material and fittings selection.
• Transparent pizometer tube with scale to measure measuring tank discharge.
