This equipment has been designed to elaborately explain the phenomenon of cavitation through demonstration. The lab set-up consists of a test section which is made of Acrylic and has conversion and diversion sections respectively. Pressure tapings are provided at critical pressure points to analyze the line pressure under experiment. A control valve is provided in the test section to regulate the water flow rate at upstream path. Two pressure gauges are connected to the pressure tapings which display the pressure at the time of flow passing through the test section.
The latest apparatus is a self-reliant water re-circulating unit, provided with a sump tank and a centrifugal pump etc. Flow in the water line is adjusted by Flow control valve and by-pass valve to conduct the experiment on different flow rates.

- To observe the phenomenon of cavitation.
- To compare the theoretical and actual pressures at cavitation condition.
