FL 05.1 – Flow Channel 2,5m

This equipment is designed to study the behavior of fluids in open channels, and allows to perform a wide range of experiments and training.

    • Standalone operation, as long as it is connected to the power supply.
    • Choice between  negative and positive channel slope.
    • A range of devices for reading different parametres, manometric gauges, limnimeter, Pitot tube, etc.
    • Wide range of accessories to study multiple phenomena.
    • It includes a valve to regulate the appropriate flow rate at any moment.
    • The flowmeter provides readings of the workflow rate  at any time.
    • We can provide a range of flow channels in various sizes. Consult without compromise.
Learning Objectives
  • Study of flow through open channels , measuring variables such as:
    • Height of water.
    • Speed ​​at different points of a cross section.
  • Study of uniform flow , gradually varied flow and behavior of surface profiles.
  • Study and use of landfill sites for the thin-walled flow measurement.
    • Rectangular weir without lateral contraction.
  • Using dumps and study of thick wall for flow measurement.
    • Rectangular weir.
    • Triangular weir.
  • Study and use of Venturi channel.
  • Analysis and study of flow under doors.
    • Vertical gate.
    • Radial gate.
  • Study of the hydraulic jump.
  • Analysis of flow over spillways of dams.
* Some of the practices require optional accessories.
