Types of piping?

  piping   critical , non critical   critical piping : where temperature ,pressure are high and sizes of pipe are big and piping connected to critical equipment( suc

Formula for Heat loss in a pipe?

pips are generally cylindrical in structure of amount of heat loss through pipe is given by the formula   Q= 2 pi k L(T1-T2)/ln(r2/r1)   where   k=conductivity of mat

Head loss in a pipe?

when a pump is used to pump a fluid into a vertically arranged pipe , fixed upright; the fluid would reach a certain height at which point the fluid would stop in a pipe.

Heat loss in copper pipes?

The thickness of the pipe will effect the loss rate. Best thing to do is buy thermal isulating foam, normally comes in tubes will a slit down one side so it can be slid over

What is major minor losses in a flow through pipe?

Losses due to the local disturbances of the flow in the conduits such as changes in cross section, projecting gaskets, elbows, valves and similar items are called minor losses

What is pipe friction loss?

  The energy lost through friction as a fluid flows through a pipe. The amount of energy lost is dependent on both the characteristics of the fluid (viscosity, density) a

Difference between major and minor losses in pipes?

The major losses within a pipe are those that occur through out the  lenght of the pipe, they are caused by the interaction of the water  particles and the inner surface of

What are the factors upon which the friction loss in a pipe depends?

Calculating the friction loss in a pipe can be conducted using one of various equations which include, but are not limited to the Darcy friction factor and the Colebrook equat
