Surname 1NameProfessorCourse Date Mechanical and Marine EngineeringMeasurement InstrumentEquipment used: The Armfield TH3 Saturation Pressure. Platinum resistance thermometers (PRT).An electronic consoleObjectivesStudy the behavior of water during the transition between liquid and vapor phases. Measure a range of saturation pressures and saturation temperatures for water. Plot a liquid - vapor saturation curve for water and check these experimental results withpublished steam table data. Determine the quality of steam, also known as the dryness fraction, exiting a pressurized vesselusing a throttling calorimeter.DefinitionsThe Armfield: Which is setup comprises of a water heating pressurized vessel that has a pipeloop and an outlet valve to a throttling calorimeter. Platinum resistance thermometers (PRT) areused to measure temperature in the instrument, giving an electrical output in ohms. The labelsPRT100 (1) and PRT100 (2) on the electronic console dial refer to the temperature readingsinside the system and in the throttling calorimeter respectively. PRT have a large temperature
