Study of Pipe Fitting
The Set-up consists of a 1/2 bend and elbow, a sudden expansion & sudden contraction fitting from 15 mm to 25 mm, bal1 valve and gate valve. Pressure tapings are provided at inlet and outlet of these fittings under test. A differential manometer fitted in the line gives pressure loss of individual fitting. Present Set-up is self-contained water re-circulating unit, provided with a sump 1ank and a centrifugal pump etc. 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 measuring tank and stop watch.
