F300 Compressible Flow Base unit

F300 Compressible Flow Base unit

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 F300 and its collection of optional accessories enable students to safely and clearly investigate the fundamentals of compressible flow, air turbines and a variety of heat transfer experiments.


The F300 Base Unit consists of an instrumentation and control console that supplies a variable flow of compressed air to the range of optional modules. The unit provides common instrumentation for all of the options. Specialised instruments are included as required with the modules.


Note that the Hilton F860 Single Stage Compressor OR F865 Two Stage Compressor can be used as a suitable air supply for the entire Compressible Flow Range F300.
