Hydraulic Test Bench for Educational Laboratory.

Product Code:

Hydraulic Test Bench

The Basic Hydraulic Bench is of volumetric type and has been designed to provide continuous and controlled supply of water to conduct various experiments using auxiliary modules in typical Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulics Laboratory. The unit is an ideal service unit for conducting student projects. Once filled, no external water supply is required. Water is recycled between the Experiment Module, Measuring Tank and the Storage Tank by the Centrifugal Pump.

Several experiments in Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulics require continuous and controlled supply of water. The Basic Hydraulic Bench provides a controlled recirculation water supply to conduct experiments.

The Basic Hydraulic Bench is a very important module and is recommended for all Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulics Laboratories in Educational Institutions. It is a basic module for flow related experiments using auxiliary modules.

    Self contained and fully portable mobile unit with welded frame.
    Light weight body made of reinforced fiber glass and corrosion resistant materials.
    Closed water circuit consisting of Measuring Tank, Storage Tank and the Centrifugal Pump.
    Control valve to regulate the pump and adjust the flow rate.
    Work space on Bench Top has integrated flow channel for flow measurements using
    Weirs and is fitted with stepped edge to ensure safe and easy mounting of experiment modules.
    Suitable pipe connectors are provided in the Bench Top to enable easy change of experiment modules.
    Graduated and stepped Measuring Tank for both low and high volume flow rates.
    Level Indicators for water level are provided in the Open Channel and Measuring Tank.
    Variable area Flow Meter (10-75 liters per minute) is also provided to measure flow rate independently.
    Stilling baffles are provided to reduce turbulence.
    Sight tube with scale provided to indicate instantaneous water level.
    Bull’s eye level is provided to ensure proper position of the Bench and accurate reading of levels.
    Remote Actuator provided to operate the Dump Valve at the base of Measuring Tank
    Over Flow provided in Measuring Tank to avoid flooding.
