Unformatted text preview: • Make sure to adjust the valves so that they have the same cracking pressures (e.g. 150, 200, 250, 300 and 350 psi). Be sure to understand the difference between cracking pressure and full flow pressure. The latter is easier to set, so you may have to iterate a few times. • Choose the settings of the valves so that you get data points where they are must useful. Report Your report should include the following • Detailed explanation of the working principle for the two types of pressure relief valves • Brief description of the experiment • Plot showing the data that you have collected • Is your data consistent with the expected flow-pressure relationship for the two relief valves PCFC that you predicted in the pre-lab exercise? • Comment on the relative advantages and disadvantages of the two valves...
