Question #39754

Olive oil with a density of 830 kg/m^3 ,in a food factory needs to be pumped in a 30mm diameter pipe to a tank 10m above the pump with a rate of 18m^3/hr. The depth of fluid in the tank is 2.75m, what pressure must be added to lift the oil to the upper tank. Friction losses as 5kpa using this equation

P1+p v1^2 + h1 pg + trianglePe = P2+p v2^2 + h2 pg + trianglePf

2 2

trianglePe= pumping energy trianglePf=frictional losses

given that Power= pressure=volume flow

P1+p v1^2 + h1 pg + trianglePe = P2+p v2^2 + h2 pg + trianglePf

2 2

trianglePe= pumping energy trianglePf=frictional losses

given that Power= pressure=volume flow
