FL 01.4 – Hydraulic Bench

The hydraulic bench is designed as a work surface to give support to a great variety of teaching equipment that requires a wáter flow. Installation is simple and hands-on oriented.


It has two volumetric tanks in different sizes. The upper tank holds 40 litres (10,5669 gallons) and the lower tank can contain up to 100 litres (26,4172 gallons). The upper tank is equipped with a high-precision flow meter for the range 0-8 litres and with a higher-interval measurement for the 0-40 litre segment. The bottom tank has a min-max flowmeter.

Other relevant features include a plug in the top tank and a fast-drain valve in the bottom tank, as well as a lid to keep dust out, improving water condition for a long time.

The user manual clearly shows and with a large number of images, the entire process to be followed to use the equipment.

The practical manual shows and explains all the theoretical foundations, as well as the mathematical formulas used for the realization of all the experimentation.

The equipment has pressure ports prepared to be able to perform the analysis and calculation of the characteristic curve of the pump.

The lower tank has a coupling for easy filling and emptying of the equipment.

The upper tanks have calibrated rules to facilitate the work of the student in the flow measurements.
