FM-1849-05 Orifice and Free Jet Flow Apparatus

The apparatus is used to determine values of discharges against the different schemes of orifice (shapes). It consists mainly of a tank with a small orifice on one side near the bottom of the tank. Along with inlet hose, adjustable overflow pipe, frame a recording system is provided that is used to measure the jet of water produced from the orifice when in used the recording system consists of a board and adjustable needles. A linear scale is provided to measure the height of meter in order to maintain the flow rate.
