Question details

3 In the problem given below, assume the equivalent length for the Foot valve is (LedD)- 70. In addition to the pump selection requirements (head rise, NPSHA), estimate the pressure reading at the discharge pressure gage. A pump in the system shown draws water from a sump and delivers it to an open tank through 1250 ft of new 4 in. nominal diameter, schedule 40 steel pipe. The vertical suction pipe is 5 ft long and includes a foot valve with hinged disk and a 90° standard elbow. The discharge line includes two 90 standard elbows, an angle lift check valve, and a fully open gate valve. The design flow rate is 200 gpm. Find the head losses in the suction and discharge lines. Calculate the NPSHA. Select a pump suitable for this application Elev 289.00 Angle lift check valwe 265 Gate valve Tully open) Discharge pressure age Ciev 28.62 Elev 24.00 SUMP Wahr Foot valve with hinged disk
