Venturimeter and Orificemeter
Discharge Through Venturimeter and Orificemeter
*An ENGLISH instruction manual with elaborate experimental procedures and block diagram etc. shall be provided with the training system set-up.
The lab-setup consists of two pipelines coming out from a common manifold. One pipe line contains a Venturimeter and other contains an Orifice meter. The installed Orifice meter and Venturimeter are made from transparent acrylic. Both of these meters are connected in parallel and hence any one can be used depending upon the experiment being performed. Pressure tapings on the Orifice meter are connected to differential manometer to measure pressure difference. A flow control valve is provided on the downstream of the Orifice meter so as to regulate the flow of water using this valve.
The latest apparatus is a self-reliant water re-circulating unit, provided with a sump tank and a centrifugal pump etc. Flow in the water line is adjusted by Flow control valve and by-pass valve to conduct the experiment on different flow rates. Flow rate of water is measured with the help of markings provided on the measuring tank and stop watch.
