Pipe Surge & Water Hammer Apparatus Description and Specifications for Lab Tenders
Pipe Surge & Water Hammer Apparatus.
1] Self‐contained unit designed to demonstrate the phenomena of pipe surge and water hammer.  Unit includes two separate test pipes, service module and constant head tank.  Two pressure transducers provide electrical signals for connection to a dual trace storage oscilloscope with an integral printer output.  Surge shaft: 44mm I/D x 800mm high. Water hammer test pipe: 22mm I/D x 3m long ST/ST. Pressure transducers: range ‐1 to 69 bar (13.5 bar max operating)  Demonstration capabilities: ‐ Demonstration of pipe surge. ‐ Determination of oscillatory characteristics of the surge shaft. ‐ Demonstration of frictional head loss between reservoir and surge shaft ‐ Comparison between theoretical and measured pressure profiles produced by water hammer. ‐ Using a dual trace storage oscilloscope to record transient water hammer pressure profiles. ‐ Measuring the pressure profile characteristics. ‐ Determination of the velocity of sound through a fluid in a pipe. ‐ Demonstration of the effects of cavitation on subsequent cycles.
