The Set-up consists of a 1/2 bend and elbow, a sudden expansion & sudden contraction fitting from 15 mm to 25 mm, bal1 valve and gate valve. Pressure tapings are provided at inlet and outlet of these fittings under test. A differential manometer fitted in the line gives pressure loss of individual fitting. Present Set-up is self-contained water re-circulating unit, provided with a sump 1ank 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. EXPERIMENTS
