The phenomenon of compressible flow, sonic velocity and supersonic flow is possibly one of the most demanding areas of study for many students.
The Hilton Compressible Flow range is an expandable range of economic bench top equipment that enables students to safely and clearly investigate the fundamentals of compressible flow, air turbines and a variety of heat transfer experiments.
A wide variety of optional modules are available that allows investigation of nozzle Choking and efficiency, jet reaction, over and under expansion in supersonic nozzles, pressure distribution in convergent and convergent-divergent choked nozzles, performance of impulse turbine, performance of reaction turbine, heat transfer, pressure losses in pipes, sudden expansions and bends, air flow measurement using orifice plates and variable area flow meters.
The range is safe and suitable for unsupervised student operation and the equipment responds immediately to system changes allowing efficient use of laboratory time.



F860 Single Stage Compressor Test Unit

The reciprocating air compressor provides a useful introduction to both heat engine theory and fundamental thermodynamic analysis.

The measured parameters also give students experience of a wide range of instruments and measurement techniques.

F865 Two Stage Compressor Test Unit

The reciprocating air compressor provides a useful introduction to both heat engine theory and fundamental thermodynamic analysis.
