Piping Systems Experiment

Product Code: EX-5553

Description

In this experiment, students determine the major losses due to friction in pipes and the minor losses due to elbows and valves. The loss over a long distance is measured between pressure taps #1 and #5 (shown in the picture above). The water velocity is measured using the Venturi tube attached to the General Flow Sensor.


Designed for use with any of the following

  • 850 Universal Interface
  • 550 Universal Interface
  • Any PASPORT interface with 2 ports

Concepts

  • Learn how to determine the friction factor
  • Estimate the energy loss of water flowing at a various flow rates through PVC pipe
  • Estimate the energy loss of water flowing through an elbow
  • Estimate the energy loss of water flowing through a valve
