Heat Transfer Through Free/Natural Convection Apparatus
To study the temperature gradient between the heated surface and the surrounding.
To calculate the heat transfer co-efficient of the tube in free convection in vertical position.
Brass tube of 32mm dia and 450mm length & Enclosure made of clear Acrylic to minimize disturbances.
Special type of heater placed inside the tube.
Heat Regulation by Electronic Voltage regulator (Dimmer stat)to conduct the experiments at different voltage input.
Digital Voltmeter & Digital Ammeter for power measurement.
Thermocouples (K-type) are provided on the surface tube of the suitable positions and in the line of airflow for measurement of temperature.
Temperature Measurement by Digital Temperature Indicator with channel selector.
Mains ON Indicator, Console ON Switch and other necessary instrumentation.
The whole arrangement is mounted on a self contained unit with NOVAPAN board control panel for ready use.
