F1-24 Hydraulic Ram - Issue 19

If flowing water is suddenly brought to rest in a long pipe, a phenomena known as water hammer occurs, wherein a pressure wave travels along the pipe. This principle is used in the hydraulic ram to pump water

Ordering Specification

• Pump body manufactured from clear acrylic with stainless steel pulse and non-return valves
• Adjustable acrylic header tank with inlet and outlet hoses
• Outlet hose with variable head arrangement
• Quick release fitting for easy connection to hydraulics bench
• Supplied with weights to load pulse valve
• Educational Software available as an option

Description

The Hydraulic Ram comprises an acrylic base incorporating pulse and non-return valves and a supply reservoir on a stand which is fed by the Hydraulics Bench.

An air vessel above the valve chamber smooths cyclic fluctuations from the ram delivery.

The weights supplied may be applied to the pulse valve to change the closing pressure and hence the operating characteristics.
