WL 204 Marcet Boiler Show data sheet (pdf file) Print page
Technical Description

  This experimental unit demonstrates the relationship between pressure and temperature of saturated steam. The saturation pressure curve can be determined up to a pressure of 15bar.

  A defined amount of water is heated in a pressure vessel using an electric heater. The temperature and pressure can be tracked continuously on a digital temperature display and a Bourdon tube manometer. A pressure relief valve and a high temperature cut-out are fitted as safety devices.

  Experiments with hot steam should only be performed under the supervision of trained personnel.
