Liquid flow restriction
I used a Swiftech MCP50X pump with a FrozenQ 400mL cylindrical reservoir filled with distilled water. The pump was powered by a direct SATA connection to an EVGA 1300G2 PSU, and was controlled by an Aquacomputer Aquaero 6 XT. There was an in-line flow meter previously calibrated, as well as a Dwyer 490 Series 1 wet-wet manometer to measure the pressure drop of the component under test. Every component was connected by 1/2″ x 3/4″ tubing, compression fittings and 2 T-fittings with the manometer.
It’s at the point where that plot is cluttered with data. So here’s another which might be more helpful:
