Energy Losses in Bends and Fittings Apparatus. It consists of: - Sudden Enlargement - Sudden Contraction - Long Bend - Short Bend - Elbow Bend - Mitre Bend Apparatus: (Cont.) Flow rate through the circuit is controlled by a flow control valve. Pressure tappings in the circuit are connected to a twelve bank manometer, which incorporates an air inlet/outlet valve in the top manifold. An air bleed screw
