The apparatus consists of two pipelines emerging out from a common manifold.
One pipe line contains a Veturimeter and other contains an Orifice. The pressure
tapings from the Veturimeter and orifice meter are taken to differential manometer
to measure pressure difference. The Veturimeter and Orificemeter are connected in
parallel and any one of them can be put in operation by operating valves provided at
the downstream. The flow can also be regulated by these valves. Present set-up is
self-contained water re-circulating unit, provided with a sump tank 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.
