F1-33 Pitot Tube Demonstrator

 

F1-33 Pitot Tube Demonstrator

The pitot tube can be moved across the cross-section of the pipe in order to measure the dynamic head profile.

Description

The pitot tube can be moved across the cross-section of the pipe in order to measure the dynamic head profile. The position of the measuring tip relative to the wall of the pipe can be read on a scale.

The pitot tube is connected to a pressurised water manometer to measure the differential head across the pitot static tube.

Technical Specifications

Inside diameter of test pipe: 27mm
Pitot-static tube outside diameter: 6mm
Pitot-static tube inside diameter: 3.2mm
Scale length of manometer tubes: 500mm
Cross section of manometer tubes: 5.6mm diameter
Range of pitot-static tube traverse: 21mm with 3mm scale increments

Requires Hydraulics Bench Service unit F1-10/F1-10-2

Features & Benefits

Downloads

  • Demonstrating the use of a Pitot-static tube to measure the Dynamic head produced by water flowing inside a pipe using a pressurised water manometer to measure the difference between the Static head and the Total head
  • Demonstrating the relationship between Static Head, Total Head and Dynamic head
  • Demonstrating how a Pitot-static tube can be used to determine the velocity of a fluid
  • Demonstrating how the Dynamic head of a fluid flowing inside a pipe varies with radius due to the development of a boundary layer at the wall of the pipe
  • Demonstrating how the Dynamic head profile varies at the entrance to a pipe downstream of a 90 degree bend with undeveloped flow
