PIPE FLOW AND NOZZLE KIT
An optional Pipe Flow and Nozzle Kit for the Centrifugal Fan Module (MFP106). This kit includes two long lengths of smooth-walled pipe with multiple pressure tappings and a Pitot traverse. The pipes connect to the inlet of the MFP106 (you move the standard inlet nozzle), so it becomes a suction fan for tests on the pipes. The pipe tappings connect to a multiway pressure display (supplied with the kit).
The multiple pressure tappings along the long pipes allow you to measure the pressure drop and therefore losses along them.
The kit includes three different fittings: two elbows and a bend, that each fit between the long pipes to test the pressure drop and therefore loss caused by the fitting. A probe mounts in an assembly so that it moves axially through an additional nozzle to measure its axial pressure profile.
A Pitot traverse fits at the end of one long pipe to allow you to measure the velocity profile across a pipe and calculate the theoretical flow. This allows a comparison with the flow found from the standard MFP106 nozzle and the orifice plate included with the kit.
