Figure 22  General 04 – Fixed Flow Pump to Three Tanks

This system models a fixed flow rate pump transferring 250 l/min of fluid from a supply container to 3 holding tanks. The flow rates to the top tank & the center tank are controlled by two FCVs each set at 80 l/min (pipe P6, pipe P12). The balance of the flow, 90 l/min, is forced along the path to the bottom tank (pipe P15).

Click the Calculate button to solve the system, to find the pump head required.

Pipe Flow Expert can be configured to display flow rate, fluid velocity, or total pressure drop, on the drawing.
