• Description

Key Features
• Directly measures friction loss in a small-bore
test pipe
• Investigates laminar and turbulent flow and
the transition point
• Shows the critical Reynolds Number and
verifies Poiseuille’s Equation for laminar flow
• Includes precision valve for precise flow
control and a Header Tank for good laminar
• Works with TecQuipment’s Hydraulic Bench
for easy installation

Learning Outcomes
• Investigations of laminar and turbulent flows
• Demonstration and measurement in the
change of the laws of resistance (friction
factor) from laminar to turbulent flow
• Finding the critical Reynolds Number
• Verifying Poiseuille’s Equation and the
coefficient of viscosity for water in the
laminar flow region
Key Specifications
• Digital pressure meter
• Precision flow control valve
• Header Tank for laminar flow
