To demonstrate the use of Venturimeter & orifice meter as flow meter
To determine co-efficient of discharge through Venturi meter and venturimeter.
To calibration discharge through Rotameter
Utilities Required :
Water Supply (Initial fill).
Electricity Supply: Single Phase, 220V AC, 50 Hz, 5-15 amp combined socket with earth connection.
Floor Area 1.5 x 0.75 m.
The apparatus consists of three pipelines emerging out from a common manifold. One pipe line contain a Venturimeter, second contains an Orifice and third pipe line contains a Rotameter. The pressure tapings from the Venturimeter and Orificemeter are taken to differential manometer to measure pressure difference. The Venturimeter, Orificemeter and Rotameter are connected in parallel and any one of them can be put in operation by operating valves provided at the downstream. Present set-up is self-contained water re-circulating unit, provided with a sump tank and a centrifugal pump. Flow control valve and by-pass valve are fitted in water line to conduct the experiment on different flow rates. Flow rate of water is measured with the help of measuring tank & stop watch.
