Question details

(10 pts) A centrifugal pump is to be used to deliver a volatile liquid from a remote tank location to the plant 1000 ft away. It is desired to locate the pump as close to the plant as possible. The pipeline is 2 in Sch 40 commercial steel and the design flowrate is 75 GPM. The tank is pressurized at 30 psia and the liquid has a vapor pressure of 30 psia, density of 45 lb/ft and viscosity 5 cp·The level in the tank is 40 ft above the pump suction. What is the closest that the pump can be located near the plant without cavitation occurring in the pump? The pump has a required NPSH of 20 ft. 3. mS
