Question: 3 water at a temperature of 150 f is pumped...

Question details





3. Water at a temperature of 150 °F is pumped between two tanks (as shown below). The commercial steel pipe size is 2 inches. There are 2 elbows, 3 gate valves, 1 check valve and one globe valve. All fittings are flanged. Plot the system characteristics curve. (Hint Plot the system characteristics curve with vertical axis in ft and horizontal axis in gpm) At a flow rate of 500 gpm, what is the total head losses in the pipe flow system and calculate the horsepower requirement for this flow rate. Also estimate the NPSHA P 35 Psig 30 2o G.v. P- 25 Psi 50 25 Check valw Globe Valve Gate valua Gle val 30 50 re inlet
