Figure 23  General 05 – Fixed Head Pump to Three Tanks

This system models a fixed head pump transferring fluid from a supply container to 3 holding tanks.

The flow to each of the holding tanks is controlled by a FCV set at 80 l/min (pipe P6, pipe P12, pipe P15).

Click the Calculate button to solve the system. The additional losses added by the FCV's to maintain the set flow rates will be calculated.

Pipe Flow Expert can be configured to display the flow rate, fluid velocity or total pressure drop on the drawing. View the results sheet or use the mouse to hover over a pipe, a node, or a component, to display the calculated results in a pop-up pane.
