Density Tank Lab Demonstration

Our desktop sized density tank lets you separate two fluids of differing density and then lift the gate to show students how they will mix and differentiate. We find that room temperature water and ice water with some salt mixed in gives the best results! We do not recommend hot water as it may over-expand the acrylic causing leaks or tank damage. Be sure to pair the tank with our turbidity ramp kit for another unforgettable demonstration using the same apparatus!

Turbidity Ramp Add-On

Add this ramp to our density demo tank to demonstrate the origin and movement of down-slope density flows such as cold air mass movement and turbidity currents! Students can observe the turbulent mixing at the head of the current and time different densities of fluids as they flow down the ramp.
