C11 MkII – Pipe Networks Vocational Training Equipment Fluids Engineering Experiment Equipment
This free-standing accessory to the F1-10 Hydraulics Bench demonstrates the characteristics of flow through different arrangements of pipes and the effect of changes in pipe diameter on the flow through a particular network.
The permanent arrangement of PVC pipes and fittings is mounted on a free-standing support frame designed to stand alongside an F1-10 Hydraulics Bench in use. Connection to the F1-10 is via a reinforced flexible tube and threaded union with ‘O’ ring seal, enabling connection to the F1-10 without the use of tools.
Isolating valves enable a wide range of different series, parallel and mixed pipe configurations to be created without draining the system. Flow into the network and flow out from the network at each outlet can be individually varied to change the characteristics of the system.
All clear acrylic test pipes are installed using threaded unions with ‘O’ ring seals that allow the pipes with different diameters to be repositioned without the use of tools.
Self-sealing quick release fittings at strategic points in the network allow rapid connection of the digital hand-held pressure meter, allowing appropriate differential pressures to be measured.
Flow leaving any of the outlets in the network is measured using the volumetric facility incorporated on the F1-10 Hydraulics Bench.
Specifically designed to allow the setting up of a wide range of different pipe arrays (networks)
Pipe network mounted on free-standing support frame for use alongside an F1-10 Hydraulics Bench
Clear acrylic test pipes are all 0.70m long with inside diameters of 1x 6mm, 2x 9mm, 1x 10mm, 1x 14mm
Includes hand-held electronic pressure meter with self-sealing quick-release connections to the pipe network
Flows into and out from the appropriate network can be varied individually
