HF 507 TILTING FLOW CHANNEL, 75 mm. wide

This is a self contained open channel designed for studying flow phenomena. It is to be used with optional accessories and models below.

The channel is of rectangular cross section supported by a steel frame. Side walls are transparent to allow full visual observation. Tilting can be adjusted  by a manual screw jack. A stainless steel head tank with a stilling baffle provides a smooth flow and water is returned to the storage tank via a stainless steel end tank.

  • Flow measurement.
  • Hydraulic jump.
  • Continuity and energy equations.
  • Discharge under sluice gate.
