Flow and Pressure Measurement
An educational Venturi tube that allows students to study the Venturi meter and Bernoulli's Theorem and to make direct comparisons between the results obtained by experimentation and those predicted by theory.
A Venturi meter is used to determine the flow rate of fluid in a pipe. TecQuipment’s (H5) Venturi Meter is comprised of a horizontal Venturi tube, a downstream flow-control valve and eleven pressure tappings connected to water manometers (piezometers). A common manifold above the piezometers includes an air pressure control valve.
The inclusion of eleven piezometers allows study of the pressure distribution along the convergent-divergent passage within the Venture tube.
The H5 is designed for use with the (H1) Gravimetric or (H1D) Volumetric Hydraulics Benches (available separately). These benches measure absolute flow rate which can be used by students to find the Venturi meter coefficients over a range of flow conditions.
ESSENTIAL BASE UNIT:
The H5 is part of a modular system and needs the following base unit
A mobile self-contained bench to provide a variable supply of water to a series of interchangeable bench-mounting or floor-standing hydraulic and fluid mechanics experiments.
Products with similar functionality to the H5
An experimental module for use with the AF10 Air Flow Bench (not included) to provide experiments that investigate and support Bernoulli's equation.
Investigates different ways of measuring flow including a Venturi meter, an orifice plate and a rotameter. At the same time shows applications of the steady flow energy equation (Bernoulli's equation).
A compact unit that compares and shows the accuracy, losses and use of fundamental flow meters. Includes a nozzle flow meter as standard.
A floor-standing, self-contained apparatus to demonstrate and observe the basic principles of cavitation and its implications on the performance of hydraulic machines and systems.
