Losses Due To Friction in Pipe Lines
The setup consists of 2 pipes of differential diameters, Which are connected in parallel. Pressure tapings are provided on each pipe to measure the pressure losses with the help of a differential manometer Control valves are fitted on each pipe , Which enables to use one pipe at a time for experiment .
Resent set-up is self- contained water re-circulating unit, provided with a sump tank and a centrifugal pump etc. Flow control valve and by-pass valve are fitted in water line to conduct the experiment on different flow rate of water is measured with the help of measuring tank and stop watch.
