WE ARE THE PROFESSIONAL MANUFACTURER FOR HDPE/PVC PIPES AND FITTINGS
The loss of head when the ends of the pipe screwed into the fitting are reamed, as shown in Fig. 65, is found by experiment to be equal to the loss of head in a pipe equal in length to about 50 diameters of the fitting. This loss of head is divided into: Fie. 65
Friction loss refers to the loss of pressure produces in a pipe or duct flow due to the fluid''s viscosity produced at the surface layer of the pipe, which is independent of the type of pipe material. Friction loss in pipe is typically measured in the feet or meters head of the
Ductile Iron Pipe has the most comprehensive series of performance based product standards in the pipe industry. Through AWWA’s A21 Committee on Ductile Iron Pipe and Fittings standards covering manufacture, design, fittings, joints, coatings and linings are regularly revised and updated to help designers specify economical Ductile iron pipelines.
The Darcy Weisbach equation relates frictional head loss (or pressure drop) in pipe flow to the pipe diameter, pipe length, average flow velocity, pipe roughness, and Reynolds nuer. The Darcy Weisbach Equation can also be considered to be an equation giving frictional head loss (or pressure drop) as a function of the friction factor, pipe length/pipe diameter, and the velocity head, where
Pipe Fitting Loss Formula Fluid head loss through a fitting can be calculated by the following equation: h = K x v² / 2g where h = pressure loss in terms of fluid head, i.e. fluid head loss K = manufacturer''s published ''K'' factor for the fitting v = velocity of fluid

The K value may be converted into head loss through multipliion with the fluid velocity head as shown in the equation below. Some methods require the friction factor to be known of the pipe. For full details of the method of calculating the friction factor see pressure loss from pipe .

Reducing Elbow The 90 reducing elbow is designed to change direction as well as reduce the size of the pipe within a piping system. The reducing elbow eliminates one pipe fitting and reduces the welding by more than one-third. Also, the gradual reduction in
This friction loss calculator employs the Hazen-Williams equation to calculate the pressure or friction loss in pipes. Losses are calculated on the basis of flow rates in circular pipes, the internal diameter of the pipe, the length of the pipe, and the type of pipe
total loss = H 1 – H2 hλ = h f + h m friction loss: h f = f * (L/D) * (V 2/2g) minor loss: h m = K L (V 2/2g) KL is the loss coefficient For each pipe segment (i.e. reaches along which pipe diameter remains constant) there may be several minor losses.
pipe before and after the fitting. Measurements are then made at the inlet to the fitting and at a section sufficiently far downstream for flow to again become fully developed. The head loss will be partly due
Minor or dynamic pressure loss in pipe or tube system components can be expressed as Δp minor_loss = ξ ρ f v 2 / 2 (1) where ξ = minor loss coefficient Δp minor_loss = minor pressure loss (Pa (N/m 2), psf (lb/ft 2)) ρ f = density of fluid (kg/m 3, slugs/ft 3)
and V= velocity in smaller diameter pipe, ft/s (m/s). This equation gives best results when the head loss is greater than 1 ft (0.3 m). Bend and Standard Fitting Losses The head loss that occurs in pipe fittings such as valves and elbows and at bends is given by h
With this equation, the value of K can be determined by comparing the head loss for a valve or fitting to an equivalent length of pipe producing the same head loss as the valve or fitting. Studies conducted by the Crane HDPE pipe for sale provided close correlation when the turbulent friction factor (f T ) is used in Equation 5 instead of the pipe friction factor that occurs in the pipeline.
Summary Fittings such as elbows, tees, valves and reducers represent a significant component of the pressure loss in most pipe systems. This article details the calculation of pressure losses through pipe fittings and some minor equipment using the K-value method, also known as the Resistance Coefficient, Velocity Head, Excess Head or Crane method.
Once you have determined your pressure loss per foot, you must simply multiple that by the length of the run of pipe. If you are not running in straight line and have elbows and tees (and other fittings) in your run, you must determine those fitting’s equivalent length.
Major loss (h f) is the energy (or head) loss (expressed in length units - think of it as energy per unit weight of fluid) due to friction between the moving fluid and the pipe wall. It is also known as friction loss. The Darcy-Weisbach method is generally considered
