A-12 Hydraulic Demo Channel

Inventory Classification

These channels are ideal complements to a course of study in fluids. After a discussion on hydraulic channel flow, they bring the real thing right into the classroom environment.

Typical, standard multi-purpose re-circulating demonstration channels consist of:

•Transparent wall channel sections.

•A head tank with adjustable undershot gate, movable tailgate, reservoir, circulating pump(s), flow meter and flow control valves.

•A motorized jacking system adjusts the slope of the channel bed.

•Working channel sections are fabricated of clear acrylic Plexiglas, which provides leak proof joints with twice the impact resistance of tempered plate glass.
