TH Series – Thermodynamics

 

TH Series – Thermodynamics

Description

The TH range is designed to introduce the fundamental principles of thermodynamics to the student.

The range of equipment starts at basic concepts such as temperature and pressure measurement and leads on to introducing the relationships between these fundamentals, the first and second law of thermodynamics, the principles of reversibility, entropy, enthalpy etc.
The equipment allows the student to gain a true understanding of these principles.

TH1 – Temperature Measurement and Calibration

The TH1 ‘Temperature Measurement and Calibration’ apparatus that has been designed to introduce students to temperature and how different techniques can be employed to measure this variable. The system is supplied with three different heat sources and five different temperature sensors. To demonstrate the thermometric properties of different temperature sensors and the use of fixed points for calibration.
TH-DTA-ALITE – Educational Software and Data logging is optionally available

TH1 Temperature Measurements and Calibration

TH2 – Pressure Measurement and Calibration

The TH2 ‘Pressure Measurement and Calibration’ apparatus that has been designed by Armfield to introduce students to pressure and how different techniques can be employed to measure this variable. Different fixed pressures are generated using a simple Dead-weight Pressure Calibrator for calibrating the measuring devices. A Bourdon type pressure gauge and electronic type pressure sensor are connected to the calibrator to allow their characteristics, including accuracy and linearity, to be determined.

TH3 – Saturation Pressure

The TH3 ‘Saturation Pressure’ apparatus that has been designed to introduce students to the concept of saturation pressure and how different techniques can be employed to measure this variable. The system allows students to investigate the behaviour of a fluid at its boiling point and how the temperature varies with pressure. It also provides the capability to determine the condition of the wet steam produced by the apparatus. Saturation curves can be obtained & compared with published steam tables.

TH4 – Recycle Loops

The Armfield TH4 ‘Recycle Loops’ apparatus that has been designed to demonstrate clearly, both visually and experimentally, what recycle is and to allow mass and energy balances to be performed under steady state and unsteady state conditions.
The system includes experimentation and calculation of the heat transfer rate at a range of recycle rates, using the steady flow energy equation.

TH5 – Expansion Processes of a Perfect Gas

The TH5 ‘Expansion Processes of a Perfect Gas’ apparatus that has been designed to introduce students to a range of basic thermodynamic processes using air as the working fluid.
The system enables investigation into the behaviour of a gas under pressure and vacuum, to determine the ratio of specific heats. Includes concepts such as Adiabatic, Isothermal, Reversible and Irreversible Processes.
