The Cussons Air Flow Bench with associated experiments provide a comprehensive facility for detailed experiments in various aspects of air flow studies, convective heat transfer and subsonic aerodynamics to be performed.
P3200 - Air Flow Bench
The P3200 Air Flow Bench consists of a welded steel frame mounted on castors and provides two work surfaces for experiments and integral storage space. A tangential fan (i.e. fitted with a narrow chord centrifugal impellor), directly driven from a single phase induction motor, provides the necessary air flow for experiments. The fan is capable of providing a flow of 500 litres/second at a static pressure rise of 800 Pascals.
