Bends and Fittings Friction

The equipment measures pressure drops at various flow rates when water flow through different pipe bends, and fittings. It is to be used with Hydraulics Bench i.e. HB100 or HB100N (separately supplied).

All bends and fittings are connected in series with pressure tappings on both sides of each device. A water manometer with a vent valve and a hand air pump is connected to these tappings. A valve at the outlet is used to control outlet pressure.

  • Determination of Pressure Drop across various pipes and fittings at differing flow rates.
  • Estimation of Loss Coefficient (K) or various pipes, pipe fittings and valve settings
