Unit for the study of fluid behaviour, hydraulic theory and the properties of fluid mechanics.
It is formed by a movable hydraulics bench used to hold a wide variety of modules, which allow the student to experiment with the problems presented by fluid mechanics.
Autonomous unit (tank and pump included).
Innovative water saving system consisting of a high capacity sump tank and spillway that sends the excess of water back to the tank.
Easy access drain valve.
The volumetric measuring tank is stepped to accommodate for low or high flow rates. A measuring cylinder (1 l.-capacity) is included in the supply for the measurement of very small flow rates.
Level tube with scale that shows the water level in the upper tank.
Flow adjusted by means of a membrane valve.
Flow stilling baffle for reducing the turbulence rate.
Specially designed channel, in the upper part, to support the modules on test.
The modules are easily mounted on its top without the use of tools. This ensures its simplicity.
Manufactured with corrosion resistant materials, ensuring a long and useful life of the unit.
Pump breaker starting, safety and contact light.
Each module is supplied as a complete piece of equipment with easy and quick coupling to the bench, maximizing the available student’s time to perform the demonstrations or the experimental measurements.
To be used with the different units of Fluid Mechanics Area: ”FME” type modules, Fluid Friction in Pipes Equipment "AFT", etc., to increase the profitability
Mobile hydraulic bench, made of fibreglass reinforced
polyester, and mounted on wheels for its mobility.
Centrifugal pump, 0.37 KW, 30 - 80 l./min at 20.1-12.8
