Question

**A pumping system is proposed to lift water from a
storage tank at an elevation of 2100-feet up to another storage
facility at 2300-feet. The pump is at an elevation of 2090-feet.
The two storage tanks are connected through a 2350-foot, 18-in
diameter pipeline. If the friction factor of the pipeline is 0.017,
what is the system curve equation?**

Answer #1

Given d=18 inch =(18/12)ft

Friction factor f=0.017

A pumping system is designed to pump from a storage
reservoir located at an elevation of 1015 feet. The pump elevation
is 1005 feet. The pump discharge flow rate is 4500 gal/min and the
water temperature is 100˚ F. Between the storage tank and the pump
is 30 feet of 14-in DIP pipe (f = 0.018) with one (1) rounded
entrance (kent = 0.05), and two (2) 45 -degree bends (k45 = 0.30).
What is the NPSHA for this system?...

"All industrial facilities have a network of piping that carries
water or other liquids. According to a U.S. Department of Energy
study, 16% of a typical facility's electricity costs are for its
pumping systems. Suppose that you are considering a pumping
facility having 11,000 ft to carry 550 gpm of water continuously to
storage tank. The general equation for estimating annual pumping
costs is
Cost($)= [(Friction factor)(Pipe length in ft)(Number of
hours)($/kWh)(Flow in gpm)^3]/[1705*(Combined pump and motor
efficiency)(Pipe inner diameter...

A farmer wants to pump water from a river to a very big open
storage tank nearby using a 55-m long, 16-cm diameter plastic pipe
with 5 threaded 90° regular bends, 5 threaded 45° regular bends,
and one fully open gate valve. The water velocity near the river
surface is 2.7 m/s and the pipe's inlet is placed in the
river normal to the direction of water flow to take advantage of
this water speed. The elevation difference between the...

A centrifugal pump takes brine from the bottom of a supply tank
and delivers it into the bottom of another tank. The brine level in
the supply tank is 150 ft below that of the other tank. The line
between the tanks is 600 ft of 4" Sch. 40 pipe. The friction factor
for a flow of 400 gpm is 0.0045. In the line are 2 gate valves, 4
branch run tees, and 4 (90) deg elbows. What is the...
