HM 150.14 Investigation of Vortex Formation Print page
Technical Description


The unit is suitable for investigating natural and forced vortices that are generated in a transparent tank. It is possible to measure the profile of the vortex using calipers. A natural vortex is generated by draining water from the tank through an interchangeable central outlet. 4 inserts of varying diameter are provided. A forced vortex can be generated by inserting an impeller, nozzles are fitted in the tank wall to inject water and spin the impeller.
The water supply is provided either from the laboratory mains or using the HM 150 (closed water circuit).
