Fluid Statistic & Manometry Model FM 56

Sci-tech Fluid Statistics & Manometry Apparatus Model FM 56 provides an introduction to the behavior of liquids under hydrostatic conditions (fluid at rest) and the application of these principles to pressure measurement using manometers.

Item Description

The trainer is designed to demonstrate the properties of fluids and their behavior under hydrostatic conditions (fluid at rest). This allows students to develop an understanding and knowledge of a wide range of fundamental principles and techniques, before studying fluids in motion. These include the use of fluids in manometers to measure pressure and pressure differences in gases and liquids.
 The trainer includes Liquid reservoir connected to manometers. The supplied manometers include U tube manometer, single limb manometer & inclined tube manometer.
 Detailed Operation & Maintenance Manual is provided along with the trainer.

 Designed for pressure measurement of Liquids & Gases using different manometers.
 Useful to understand principles of Fluids at rest.
