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

Question details

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 200kpm, what is the total head losses in the pipe flow system and calculate the horsepower requirement for this flow rate. Also estimate the NPSHA 30 20 P- 25 psig Check velv Globe Gale vabe 30 mauth
