The trainer is considered a reservoir that is filled with sand, used to help students to know the principles of the ground water and the flow of leakage. It also helps in the study of sediment transport and obstacles in running waters.

                                     
  • The trainer includes mainly reservoir that is filled with sand, made of stainless steel with inclination adjustment.
  • The trainer contains a closed water circuit with storage reservoir and pump.
  • The trainer provides a wide variety of experiments.
  • The trainer is equipped with a precipitation device, which includes a timer to define the times of precipitation, which is consists of eight nozzles.
  • The trainer allows water to flow in or out through two chambers on the sides.
  • The reservoir is separated from the chambers by fine mesh screens, also it is provided with 19 measuring connections at the bottom to detect groundwater levels, which are displayed on 19 tube manometers.
  • The trainer is supplied by two wells, to measure the lowering of groundwater.
  • The trainer makes a path of a river by small weir in the supply and drain.
  • Different water levels can be generated.
  • Water supply and water drain can be opened and closed.
  • The trainer can be equipped with three different models which make it easy to study the flow around obstacles and the resulting lee›s transport in the river bed.
  • The trainer is equipped with three flow meters with different measuring ranges.
  • The trainer includes a measuring reservoir at the drain which contains a measuring weir for determining the water level and a force sensor for determining the amount of sediment.
  • The trainer includes a control panel with digital displays for the measured values.
  • The unit is provided with an interactive software used for data acquisition and visualization which makes the experiments clear and enables fast execution of experiments with reliable results.
  • The unit is provided with a USB socket for connection with PC through which the measured values are transmitted to the software.
  • The sand grains are must be 1 to 2 mm in diameter (not included)
  • The training system can be inclined using hydraulic jack which can be operated through a mounted motor. The system is also supplied with Up/Down button to lift the system either up or down.
  • The hydraulic jack is supplied with two limit switches to provide safety for the channel by preventing it from going up or down over a certain value.
  • The system is also supplied with blocks which are located on the main frame plate to provide further safety during channel movement in case of hydraulic jack break down
