  • Fluid Mechanics & Piping Systems Trainer (FM - 026)
  • Hard copy user manual

The fluid mechanics trainer tends to demonstrate the pipe systems with practical experiments, and allow the trainee to learn what affects the pipe system and what causes the pressure losses.

                                     
  • The trainer allows the trainee to do different experiments for flow and pressure measurement.
  • The trainer consists of 6 different pipe section which allows the trainee to learn how the pipe material, diameter and the cross-section affects on the pipe system.
  • Some of the measuring components are visible like venturi nozzle and orifice plate flow meter.
  • Water reservoir and a pump are added to the trainer to be able to work without any additional units, the flow rate is measured by rotameter.
  • The trainer allows the trainee to follow up the pressure readings in the whole process by measuring the pressure in different places, five pressure gauges are placed to do so.
