Fluid Properties Kit

Fluid Properties Kit



This kit provides an opportunity for teachers and industry experts to demonstrate several topics integral to the pipe trades. A series of clear pipes with valves at the bottom provide can be used to show density of different liquids, or pressure of water in different sizes of pipe. Manometers can be attached to get accurate pressure readings. Calculations can be made of volume, pressure, and density.
