Stefan Boltzmann Apparatus
The ‘J. P. T. I.’ unit consists of a hemisphere surrounded by hot water. The instrument determines stefan boltzmann constant. Water heating tank is provided to supply hot water. Stefan Boltzmann constant is determined from the temperature raise rate when blackned disc is inserted at the center of disc from hemisphere by radiation & its temperature begins to rise.
Emissivity Measurement Apparatus
The ‘JPTI’ unit consists of a two circular aluminium plates of identical dimensions. One of the two plates is the blackened and considered as black surface. While other plates is the test plates. Both the plates have Nichrome wire heater bound in mica sheet attached to them. Both the plates are keep in close enclosure. Supply of heat to both the plates is given by different variacs measured by a voltmeter & ammeter. Heat input to both the plates can be read with the help of SPDT switches. A temperature indicator is provided to measure the temperature of both the plates.
Forced Convection Apparatus
The ‘JPTI’ unit consists of mainly a centrifugal blower, electrically heated test section, control valve to regulate the air flow and an orificemeter and U-tube water manometer for flow measurement. Thermocouples are used to measure the pipe wall temperature and also the air temperature at inlet and exit. The apparatus mainly designed to find out the value of heat transfer coefficient under the air different conditions.
Natural Convection Apparatus
The ‘J P T I’ unit consists of vertical cylinder fitted in a large enclose, with top and bottom open to ensure undisturbed natural convection apparatus. Perspex sheet provided at the front side of enclosure for visual display. Heating element provided inside the cylinder to heat it uniformly and the heat is dissipated from other surface by natural convection to ambient air. Thermocouples cylinder surface and one more thermo couple records the ambient temperature in the duct. The heater input can be varied with the help of a dimmerstat and measured by voltmeter and an ammeter.
Pin Fin Apparatus
The ‘J.P.T.I.’ unit consist of a brass or aluminium fin of a circular cross section fitted across at one end of a long rectangular dust.
The other end of the duct is connected to suction side of the blower and the air flows past the fin perpendicular to it’s axis. One end of the fin projects outside the duct & is heated by an electric heater. Temperature at five points along the length of the fin are measured by thermocouples. The blower is not run in natural convection condition while it is run in forced convection conditions. The air flow rate can be varied by control valve on delivery side of the blower.
Heat Pipe Apparatus
