Full Specification ( Losses In Pipe Friction ):
As a fluid flows in a pipe, it suffers losses in head due to various reasons like change in direction, change in cross section of pipes, friction between boundaries. layer of pipe and the fluid. Pipe friction 'apparatus enables us to find out the loses in head of the fluids in the pipes due to friction by passing water through various pipes of difference cross sections of the same material and different materials Water is circulated by the pump from the slump tank to the test pipe one to know the head loss at the tapings. Measuring tank is mounted on the sump tank to measure the How.
