Flowspeeds

The following Flowspeeds should be used for general estimations :-

Pump Suction Line - 1 m/s


Pump Discharge Line - 1-2 m/s
Pump Discharge Line (American) - 1-3 m/s
Liquids falling by gravity - 1 m/s
Vapours/Gases - 12-20 m/s
Steam @ 8-30 barg - 15-30 m/s
Vent Stacks - 9 m/s
Vent Stack Discharges - 12 m/s
