The trainer comprises original components as used in heating and sanitation systems and is therefore relevant in practice.
There are six expansion sections. One of the sections is fitted with a compensator. The elongation of the pipes is indicated on dial gauges. A force measuring device enables the expansion force to be determined.
Learning Objectives / Experiments
- thermal expansion of different materials such as PVC, PE, copper and steel
- determination of thermal expansion coefficients and the expansion force
- measurement of pipe elongation
- effect of varying pipe diameter
- expansion compensator
