FS-2.2 – Fluid Science Manometer – U Tube

The Fluid Science U-Tube Manometer tray includes experiments to compare the pressure created with varying flow rates against atmospheric pressure for both ends of a straight pipe.

Description

The Fluid Science range is an innovative suite of products designed to enable students to gain an understanding of the fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics and Thermo Fluids by the process of learning via hands-on experimentation.

The high precision elements are supplied as modular tray-based systems which operate in conjunction with the Fluid Science service unit, multifunctional work panel and instrumentation enabling the student to conduct their own individual or group experiments.

The experiments are supplied with a highly visual user-friendly operational guide, allowing the students to understand the theory of the subject by the application of practical experimentation.

The Fluid Science U-Tube Manometer tray includes experiments to compare the pressure created with varying flow rates against atmospheric pressure for both ends of a straight pipe.

It also demonstrates how the differential pressure changes as flow rate changes across a straight pipe.
