With Sci-tech Methods of Flow Measurement Apparatus Model FM 106 students can familiarize themselves with various methods for measuring flow in the pipe system and apply them in practice.

Item Description

Measuring the flow rate is an important aspect in measurement technology. There are several ways to measure the flow of fluids in pipes. The experimental unit contains different measuring instruments to determine the flow rate. These instruments are designed with transparent cases in order to visualize how they operate and function. The methods include, for example, rotameters, a Venturi nozzle or orifice plate flow meter and measuring nozzle. Six tube manometers is used in order to determine the pressure distribution in the Venturi nozzle or the orifice plate flow meter and measuring nozzle. The total pressure is measured by a Pitot tube. The experimental unit is positioned easily and securely on the work surface of the FM 100F Hydraulic Bench. The water is supplied and the flow rate measured by FM 100. Alternatively, the experimental unit can be operated by the laboratory supply.
