Model No- FM-014


The”METLORINDIA” hydrostatics bench, numerous experiments on the topic of the hydrostatics of liquids and gases can be carried out. A pipe section and various pressure measuring devices are fitted to a laboratory trolley with a demonstration panel, working area and cabinet. Various measuring containers are integrated into the pipe section. The sealed water circuit and pump with supply tank permit experiments to be performed independent of a mains water connection. This feature makes the bench particularly suitable for use in seminars rooms and lecture theatres. Further experimental apparatus are included in the cabinet, e.g. a device for determining the center of pressure of a column of water. This enables the pressure on a weir to be determined, amongst other aspects.
