Test & Measurement Equipment » Hydraulic Equipment
An extensive array of hydraulic equipment is available for fluid-dynamic demonstrations and experiments. With three hydraulic benches and one flume, multiple groups can conduct experiments at the same time. For more information, including a list of accessories, please visit the respective pages for the hydraulic equipment in our Experiment Directory.
Hydraulic Benches (x3)
The Hydraulics Bench is designed to accommodate a range of accessories, each of which demonstrates an aspect of hydraulics theory. A centrifugal pump supplies flow to the chosen accessory and flowrate is measured by rising water levels in a volumetric sight glass.
The water flume has a 2.5m x 76mm x 250mm channel bed. A jacking arrangement permits the slope of the bed to be adjusted between -1 to +3%, and the water level in the working section of the flume is controlled by an overshot-weir arrangement at the exit.
