FLOW MEASUREMENT IN PIPES USING PRESSURE REDUCING PARTS MP80

This apparatus allow the study of different methods of flow measurement in an incompressible fluid. This a direct application of the steady flow energy equation ; Bernoulli’s theorem.

MP80Teaching objectives

- Pressure losses generated when the water passes through three standardised pressure parts (venturi meter, diaphragm, rotameter) are measured, which allows the fluid flow rate to be calculated and compared with a volumetric measure.
- Comparison of the pressure drop from each measuring device.
- Comparison of the pressure drop produced by a sudden contraction and a 90° angled pipe.

 

Technical specifications

- A tank made of PVC, outside level with lateral tapping, draining and overflow for flow measuring,
- A tank made of PVC with draining,
- A centrifugal pump,
- A diaphragm,
- A venturi,
- An sudden contraction,
- An elbow 90°,
- A rotameter,
- A valve at the exit of the rotameter,
- A millimetric panel in PVC,
- A battery of piezometric tubes with recuperation chute for measuring of the pressures drops,
- A start/stop box with protection for the pump,
- The bench is made of PVC piping and Altuglass (Venturi, Diaphragm and elbow) and is mounted on a stainless steel frame.
- Supplied with educational and technical documentation.

EQUIPEMENT PACKAGE :
- MP80 with valve study, MP81.
- MP81 with differential pressure sensor, MP82.
- Programmable indicator for calibration of diaphragm or venturi in option for MP82 only.
- MP80B with EH50 instead of feeding tank.
