Pipe Fitting Apparatus. The setup consists of a 1/2 bend and elbow, a sudden expansion sudden contraction fitting from 15mm to 25mm, ball valve, and gate valve. Pressure tapings are provided at the inlet and outlet of these fittings under test. A differential manometer fitted in the line gives pressure loss of individual fittings. The set-up can be connected to Hydraulic Bench by flexible pipeline.
- To determine loss of head in the fittings at various water flow rates.
- To determine the loss co-efficient for the pipe fittings.
- Comparing the Pressure drop across each device.
