The apparatus consists of a cylindrical clear acrylic fabrication with provision for levelling. Water is fed through a nozzle and discharged vertically to strike a target carried on a stem which extends through the cover.
A weight carrier is mounted on the upper end of the stem. The dead weight of the moving parts is counter-balanced by a compression spring. The vertical force exerted on the target plate is measured by adding the weights supplied to the weight pan until the mark on the weight pan corresponds with the level gauge. A total of four targets are provided: a flat plate, a 120° cone and a hemispherical cup.
Nozzle diameter: 8mm
Distance between nozzle & target plate: 20mm
Diameter of target plate: 36mm
Target plates: - 180° hemispherical target
- 120° target (cone)
- flat target
- 30° target
