Description of Separating & Throttling Calorimeter:
Separating and Throttling Steam Bench consists of a sturdy framework and panels of all steel construction, fitted with a student work surface, interconnecting back panel and adjustable feet. The steam bench includes an insulated separating calorimeter, equipped with a water level sight glass, connected via fixed orifice to a lagged throttling calorimeter which exhausts to a water cooled steam condenser. A manometer is provided for measuring the pressure inside the throttling calorimeter and thermocouples are provided for measuring steam supply and temperatures which may be individually selected for display on an analogue temperature meter.

Specification of Separating & Throttling Calorimeter:
Steam bench designed for determining the dryness fraction of steam. The bench includes series connected mild steel separating and throttling calorimeters, each welded in accordance with designed for a maximum working pressure of bar and a maximum steam temperature of 235°C, and lagged with fibreglass insulation enclosed within a mild steel cover. The separating calorimeter is fitted with a graduated level gauge, protected by a clear Perspex tubular shield, and a drain line with isolating valve; the throttling calorimeter is fitted with brass orifice block, a temperature measuring point, a pressure measuring point connected to a manometer via an isolating valve, and a steam outlet line to a steam condenser with cooling water supplied from the service line, via an isolating valve, and connected to drain via a combined sight glass and check valve.
