PRESSURE DROP IN PIPE


Calculation based on Campbell Gas Processing (Volume 2, pg 9)

D= 6 (INTERNAL DIAMETER IN INCHES)


or D= 0.500 (feet)
V= 1 (DYNAMIC VISCOSITY IN CPS)
or V= 0.0007 (#/ft-sec)
SG= 0.807 (SPECIFIC GRAVITY)
or Density= 50.33 (#/ft3)

Q= 15,000 (BARRELS PER DAY)


OR Q= 437.5 (GPM)
OR Q= 0.975 (cubic feet / sec)

RE= 185,706 (REYNOLDS NUMBER) [RE<2000 LAMINAR]


[RE>4000 TURBULENT]
PRESSURE DROP = 0.532 (PSI/100 FEET)
FLUID VELOCITY = 4.964 (FEET/SECOND)

LINE LENGTH = 10,000 (FEET)


PRESSURE DROP = 53.163 (PSI) MATCH
