Energy Losses in Bends and Fittings
This equipment enables to calculate the energy losses on some elements of a hydraulic circuit such as bends, sudden contractions and enlargements, control valves, etc…
The available elements for the study of energy losses are:
- 90° elbow
- short bend
- large bend
- sudden contraction
- sudden enlargement
Each element has two pressure tapping points which are connected with a differential pressure gauge manometer of 12 tubes thus enabling to measure the head loss.
Another element of this equipment is a valve equipped with a pressure tapping connected with a manometer.
- Measuring the energy losses in the different elements varying the flow rate and calculating the respective coefficients
- Comparing the energy losses across each element
