Orifice and free jet flow




Determination of the orifice velocity coefficient.

obtaining of the orifice discharge coefficient in permanent regime.

obtaining of the orifice discharge coefficient in variable regime.

obtaining of the tank discharge time.


Photon module consists of methacrylate tank (with cylinder form) that enables to maintain a constant from the Hydraulics Bench or from the Basic Hydraulic Feed System. Two nozzles are provided, with orifices of different diameter, and they are placed in the base of the tank. They can be easily exchanged. The trajectory of the jet can be drawn by following the position of some vertical needles placed in an annexed panel. These are adjusted by means of some screws with command. This panel includes a silk screen scale that enables to measure the profile of the jet. Adjustable feet permit leveling.
