The Properties of Fluids and Hydrostatics Bench are 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.
A variety of measuring devices is incorporated, either fastened to the back of the bench or freestanding. Water is stored in a stainless steel tank situated at the base of the unit.
The water can be transferred by centrifugal pump, either to an elevated open storage tank connected to a number of glass tubes for free surface studies.
