Product Code : MTFM-109/DL
The present set-up is designed to study an venturi meter and to calculate fluid discharge through it. By determining the co-efficient of discharge of this venturi meter it can be used as a flow meter and can be installed in a fluid line. The apparatus consists of a pipe line in which a transparent venturi meter is installed. The pressure tapings from the venturi meter is taken to differential pressure transmitter to measure pressure difference. Present set-up is self-contained water re-circulating unit, provided with a sump tank, centrifugal pump etc. Water is pumped by means of centrifugal pump and passing through the test section, it returns back to the sump which make the system re-circulating type. Flow control valve and by-pass valve are fitted in water line to conduct the experiment on different flow rates. Flow rate of water is measured with the help of flow sensor fitted in water line. The supplied set-up is complete in all respect. Only water supply and electricity supply is to be provided by the end user for running the set-up. The present set-up has a facility to interface the system with computer which enables to log the experimental data using computer. The educational software and data-logging package has been developed for unit. The software environment base is of LabView of NATIONAL INSTRUMENTS, USA. This softwareis compatible to interfacing unit designed by Engineers. This software package provides a comprehensive educational software environment within which the investigations can be performed. This software is capable to tabulate the sample readings according to the requirement of experiment under study and results obtained can be compared. The real time data acquisition can be done by interfacing the set-up with computerusing software. Software allows the user to have control on data logging, printing the stored data, preparing spread sheets in Excel etc.
