This full-scale experimental plant contains a comprehensive sewerage pipe system with many branches, fabricated using high quality glass laboratory pipes.
Using this plant the flow and pressure can be investigated at various junctions, pipe offsets, changes in cross-section and at siphons under varying ventilation situations. Elevated tanks can be emptied using three remote controls so that a realistic flow of waste water can be produced. The plant has a closed water circuit with pump and tank.
Learning Objectives / Experiments
- Pressure distribution in the waste water
downcomer - Bypass pipe - Flow in case of pipe offset - Suction effect at junctions - Operation of sanitation fittings
