Major and minor losses associated with pipe flow in piping networks helps in determining the pumping power requirements, material and fittings selection. A good understanding of such losses helps engineers in designing optimum fluid distribution systems process plants etc .
This apparatus is designed to introduce students to minor flow losses(Fittings) in Pipes.The following types of pipe fittings are generally provided with the apparatus :-
Box Dimensions : 1000 X 500 X 1600 mm.
U- tube manometer : 300-0-300 (Mercury filled).
Number of fittings : 5 Nos.
Sump tank capacity : 100 litres MOC: ElectroplatingTank (PVC).
Volumetric tank capacity : 40 litres. MOC: SS-304 with Matt Buffing.
Pump : Monoblock type, 0-60 litre/min , Motor 0.5 HP.
Piping with necessary Valves and Fittings.
Digital Stop Watch with 1/10 second Accuracy.
