Air Flow Experiments

The study of airflow and its application within the mechanical, power, renewable energy, aeronautical and automotive engineering sectors is of crucial importance. Cussons’ range provides compact laboratory experiments to illustrate all of the main concepts. The equipment offered enables students to understand air flowrate and pressure measurement techniques, Bernoulli’s theorem, flow in ducts and around bends and the use of axial and centrifugal fans. This is achieved by practical hands-on experimentation devised to illustrate the underpinning theory provided in the experiment manuals.

P3226 & P3228 - Axial & Centrifugal Fan Demonstration Units

Description

The units have been developed to study the characteristics of Axial and Centrifugal fans enabling a wide range of experimentation capabilities related with flow velocity profile in the pipe aspiration, difference between static pressure, dynamic and total, characteristic of axial and centrifugal curves or axial and centrifugal fan spin.

Speed is displayed digitally and a combination of pressure transducers enables the measurement of working pressure in order to study the fan characteristics in real time. Pressure taps are sealed to prevent leaks that distort the readings taken.
