F1-24-Hydraulic Ram

If flowing water is suddenly brought to rest in a long pipe, a phenomenon known as water hammer occurs, which produces a pressure wave that travels along the pipe. This principle is used in the hydraulic ram to pump water.

Description

The Hydraulic Ram comprises an acrylic base incorporating pulse and non-return valves and a supply reservoir on a stand, which is fed by the Hydraulics Bench. An air vessel above the valve chamber smooths cyclic fluctuations from the ram delivery.
