Surge Tank and Water Hammer Unit

Product Details

Technical Description
Pressure surges in pipes or structures carrying water are a technical problem that should not be underestimated. In the majority of cases reservoirs have a surge chamber to trap pressure surges caused by a change in the flow speed of the water. Pipe systems must, in turn, be so designed that the pressure surges occurring there (caused, e.g., by the sudden closing of a valve) can be survived without damage. Pressure surges can be generated in a pipe on the HM 156. The oscillations during this pressure surge are displayed on a storage oscilloscope available as an optional extra. In addition, it is also possible to display the decay of a pressure surge in a surge chamber. The pressure oscillations in the surge chamber are recorded using a recorder module (accessory HM 156.01).

Learning Objectives / Experiments
· Pressure surges in a pipe
· Principle of operation of a surge chamber
· Calculation of the speed of sound in the pipe (with oscilloscope available as an option)
