Description and Specification for Lab Tenders
LOSSES IN PIPE FRICTION APPARATUS.
The unit consists of 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 major flow losses in Pipes. The following types of pipes are generally provided with the apparatus:-
Two Pipes -
a. Dia. of pipe - 0.022 m (For pipe ¾")
b. Dia. of pipe - 0.016 m (For pipe ½")
A flow control valve permits variation of flow rate through the circuit. Pressure tapings are incorporated so that the head loss characteristics of each fitting may be measured. These tapings are connected to a manometer bank incorporating a manifold with air bleed valve. The circuit and manometer are attached to a support framework
