Energy Losses in Pipes
The equipment enables to measure the head loss of a liquid flowing through a circular pipe. It consists of a test pipe, oriented vertically, which may be fed directly from the hydraulics bench or from an internal tank with constant level.
The flow rate can be adjusted by a valve on the discharge line of the pipe. Head loss between two tapping points in the test pipe is measured by a mercury pressure gauge for high flow rates, and a water pressure gauge for small flow rates. Water discharging from the head tank returns to the supply tank of the hydraulics bench.
