The equipment is designed to study the pressure increase produced by varying the flow through a valve, and to observe the positive and negative water hammer produced because of an instantaneous closure of a valve.
Also, it can be studied the effects of a surge pipe in reducing overpressure / depressure from water hammer.
The data is studied on a LabVIEW software.
Study and display pressure increase produced by varying the flow path through a valve.
Study and visualization of the phenomenon of water hammer produced by the instantaneous closure of a valve.
Study and visualization of the phenomenon of water hammer caused by the unexpected shutdown of a pump.
Study and viewing the effects of a surge tank in the attenuation of water hammer.
Determining the speed of sound through water in a pipe.
Determination of head losses in a pipe.
