The present set-up consists of a test section made of Acrylic having conversion and diversion section. Pressure tapings at appropriate position are provided. This test section is having one control valve at upstream side to regulate the water flow rate. Two pressure gauges are connected to these taping which give the pressure readout at the time of flow passing through this test section. Present set-up is self-contained water re-circulating unit, provided with a sump tank, centrifugal pump etc. Water is pumped by means of centrifugal pump and passing through the test section, it returns back to the sump which make the system re-circulating type.
Floor Area Required: 1.5 m (L) x 1 m. (W)
Test Section: Material Acrylic/Poly Carbonate
Pressure Gauge: 0-5 kg/cm2
Vacuum Gauge: 0-760 mmHg
Water Circulation: Pump Crompton make
Flow Measurement: Measuring Tank (Capacity: 50 liters) & Electronic Stop Watch.
Sump Tank: Capacity: 60 liters
Control Panel would comprise of :
Standard make On/Off Switch, Mains Indicator, etc.
Apparatus Tanks would be made of Stainless Steel.
Apparatus would be capable of finding cavitation phenomena also it would be able to compare the theoretical and actual pressures at cavitation condition.
