Pipe Friction and Energy Loss
LOSSES IN PIPING SYSTEMS
An apparatus to allow students to investigate the friction losses in piping systems. The large open format of the apparatus makes it ideal for students working in small or large groups.
ESSENTIAL BASE UNIT:
The H16 is part of a modular system and needs the following base unit
Provides a controlled recirculating water supply and accurate flowmeter for hydraulic and fluid mechanics experiments.
Optional supporting products for the H16
Optional ancillary (H16p) investigates the characteristics of flow in a roughened pipe.
Products with similar functionality to the H16
A bench-mounting apparatus to allow students to investigate friction losses in a small-bore horizontal pipe under laminar and turbulent flow conditions.
A simple single pipeline apparatus to demonstrate energy losses around typical bends and fittings.
A floor standing apparatus to allow students to investigate the phenomena of laminar, transitional and turbulent flows in pipe systems.
