Motor Sizing Calculation I.

Flow (Q) Flow Rate (Max) in LPH=50 Flow Rate (Max) in Cubic metre per second=50/(1000*3600)=1.39x10-5 II. Pressure (P) Maximum Pressure (Relief Valve Set Pressure) in Kg/Sq.cm=50 Maximum Pressure in N/Sq.m=50x105 (Assuming 1 Kgf=10N) III.Efficiencies: Volumetric Efficiency 90% Mechanical Efficiency 25% (For reciprocating pumps) IV. BKW at Shaft Input=QxP/(1000xVol.effxMech.eff) =1.39x10-5x 50x105/(1000x0.9x0.25) =0.31 KW V. Selected motor KW = 0.75 KW The selected motor KW is > BKW Hence the design is Safe

Tank Sizing Calculation I. Preparation Tank Ammonia Capacity 125 Litres (Qty 1 no) Diameter in mm (D) =550 Useful Height in mm (h)=550 Free board in mm (fb) =150 Total Height in mm (H=h+fb)=700 Useful capacity in Litres =/4*D*D*h*1000 /4*0.55*0.55*0.55*1000=130 L Sized Useful capacity 130 L > Required Useful capacity 125 L Hence the sizing is adequate. II. Preparation Tank Hydrazine Capacity 30 Litres (Qty 1 no) Diameter in mm (D) =350 Useful Height in mm (h)=400 Free board in mm (fb) =150 Total Height in mm (H=h+fb)=550 Useful capacity in Litres =/4*D*D*h*1000 /4*0.35*0.35*0.4*1000=38 L Sized Useful capacity 38 L > Required Useful capacity 30 L Hence the sizing is adequate. III. Dosing Tank Hydrazine & Ammonia Capacity 2400 Litres (Qty 2 nos) Diameter in mm (D) =1350 Useful Height in mm (h)=1700 Free board in mm (fb) =300 Total Height in mm (H=h+fb)=2000 Useful capacity in Litres =/4*D*D*h*1000 /4*1.35*1.35*1.7*1000=2434 L Sized Useful capacity 2434 L > Required Useful capacity 2400 L Hence the sizing is adequate. IV. Dosing Tank Hydrazine & Ammonia Capacity 2400 Litres (Qty 2 nos) Diameter in mm (D) =1350 Useful Height in mm (h)=1700 Free board in mm (fb) =300 Total Height in mm (H=h+fb)=2000 Useful capacity in Litres =/4*D*D*h*1000 /4*1.35*1.35*1.7*1000=2434 L Sized Useful capacity 2434 L > Required Useful capacity 2400 L Hence the sizing is adequate.

V. Dosing Tank NaOH Capacity 500 Litres (Qty 1 nos) Diameter in mm (D) =800 Useful Height in mm (h)=1000 Free board in mm (fb) =300 Total Height in mm (H=h+fb)=1300 Useful capacity in Litres =/4*D*D*h*1000 /4*0.8*0.8*1*1000=502 L Sized Useful capacity 502 L > Required Useful capacity 500 L Hence the sizing is adequate. Note: We have considered 150 mm free board for Preparation Tanks and 300 mm free board for Dosing Tanks
