Product Description

A liquid flowing through a pipe will experience energy losses due to viscous resistance. The system is closed circuit. This apparatus is used to measure the losses due to :

  • Sudden Enlargement
  • Sudden Contraction

The apparatus consists of:

  • A Centrifugal pump of 25mm x 25mm with 1/2 HP Motor (ISI – Kirlosker Make)
  • M.S. Sump Tank 80 Ltr. to collect the water.
  • M.S. Measuring Tank 30 Ltr  fitted with piezometer tube to measure the discharge. Damper is used to collect the water in M.S. MEASURING TANK for certain time.
  • G.I. pipe of internal dia 25mm and Gunmetal ISI mark Control Valve and regulating valves are used to circulate water.
  • Bye-pass line is also used to regulate the discharge.

This apparatus consists of:

  • Large bend made up of G.I.
  • Sudden enlargement from 25mm dia to 32mm dia.
  • Sudden contraction from 32mm dia to 25mm.
  • Gunmetal gate valve of 25mm dia. A U tube manometer is connected to pet cock through plastic tubing to measure head difference. The tanks are well
  • FRC fiber coated inside to prevent rust hence increase the life of tank.

Experimental capabilities:

  • To determine the loss coefficient for different type of fittings.
  • Comparison of pressure drops across two different types.
