UNIT TO STUDY THE PRESSURE DROP OF COMPRESSIBLE FLUIDS IN PIPES - PDCFP

INNOVATIVE SYSTEMS

The Unit to Study the Pressure Drop of Compressible Fluids in Pipes, "PDCFP", allows the study of the compressible fluid pressure drop, for example the air of a compressor, and the different flow conditions (laminar and turbulent) thanks to the distribution of fluid in pipes that have differents sections and fittings.

General Description

The Unit to Study the Pressure Drop of Compressible Fluids in Pipes, "PDCFP", allows the study of the compressible fluid pressure drop, for example the air of a compressor, and the different flow conditions (laminar and turbulent) thanks to the distribution of fluid in pipes that have differents sections and fittings.

The unit consists of a system of pipes connected through a series of accessories that allow the distribution of air along a network. The pipes have different diameters. Besides, the pipe network has multiple pressure measurement taps to check the effects of the different accessories on the flow of air through the pipeline. The pressure taps along the pipe are used to determine the friction factor of the pipe and the pressure drops. The accessories includes are an elbow, an orifice plate, a narrowing and a widening of the pipe.
