Have you ever wondered how the flow and pressure in piping systems work? If so, then you must tune in to watch this video. This video gives you an overview of pipe hydraulics and interruptions in flow. Now, let’s get started!
When it comes to the flow in pipelines, it is to no surprise that there will be losses of pressure caused by friction and turbulence. Believe it or not, electrical circuits and fluids in pipes have a lot of similarities.
With conductors having resistance to the flow of current, pipes have resistance to the flow of fluid. Given a flow rate, larger pipe fittings will have lower velocity and smaller pipes will have higher velocity. With that being said, different configurations of pipes will have different effects on the flow and pressure of the fluid inside.
Although pipeline pressure is monitored 24-hours a day, there is still a possibility that it could cause corrosion and damage. Installing a piping system has to be done properly or it could lead to leaks and eventually an explosion. To learn more about the flow and pressure in piping systems, continue on with the video!
