Pipe Surge and Water Hammer Apparatus
The equipment is self-contained and is closed circuit system.
The water enters the test pipe via the constant head tank and discharges into the measuring tank.
It consists of two test sections, one for pipe surge and other for water hammer phenomenon.
Two electronic Pressure sensors with the current output of 4 - 20mA are installed on the unit.
The whole system incorporates a head tank, measuring tank, sump tank, circulating pump, a lever operated gate valve and flow control valve.
This software is compatible with interfacing unit designed by Lab Connection.
This software package provides a comprehensive educational software environment within which the investigations can be performed.
This software is capable to tabulate the sample readings according to the requirement of the experiment under study and results obtained can be compared.
The educational software and data-logging package has been developed for the unit.
The real-time data acquisition can be done by interfacing the set-up with the computer using the software.
The software allows the user to have control on data logging, printing the stored data, preparing spreadsheets in Excel etc.
The present set-up has a facility to interface the system with a computer which enables to log the experimental data using a computer.
