Hydraulic Ram Test Rig Description and Specifications for Lab Tenders
Hydraulic Ram Test Rig.
Hydraulic Ram Test Rig
The setup is designed to study the Hydraulic Ram.
Ram is used for pump little quantity of water to high head from a large
quantity of water available at low head
It works on a principle of
water hammer stating that “when flowing water is suddenly stopped in a
long pipe a pressure wave travels along the pipe creating an effect of
Set up consists of a pipe section fitted with a
pulse valve and non-return valve, a supply reservoir on a stand which is
connected to an overhead tank, an air vessel above the valve chamber
smoothes cyclic fluctuations from the Ram delivery. Different pressure
may be applied to the pulse valve to change the closing pressure and
hence the operating characteristic.
The flow rate of useful and
waste water is measured using measuring tank and stop watch provided.
Pressure and Vacuum gauges are connected on delivery and suction side
for the purpose of measurement
To find out discharge of useful water and waste water.
To find out the efficiency of the Hydraulic ram
Provide 230 +/- 10 VAC, 50 Hz, single phase electric supply with proper earthing. (Neutral – Earth voltage less than 5 VAC.),
5A, three pin socket with switch for pump.
Tap water connection ” BSP
Distilled water @ 250 liters (optiona)
