Hello Everybody, I'm looking for Pump and Piping Engineering book where i can learn Pump Calculations like Pump Sizing, Calculation of Pressure Drop Across pipe bends, Valves etc and Back Pressure Calculations and apply them to real world problems. I am Basically a Mechanical Engineer and I'm new to Pump and Piping Engineering. Please Suggest me good books which is easily understandable and with lot of examples. Thank You, Cheers, Hemcrop

Follow simple steps in sizing pipe using proper units: How to Size a Pump To lift water through a certain height. Formulas Work = Force x Distance Power = Work Done___ Time in Seconds 1 Gallon of water weighs 8.33 lbs 1 Horse Power = 550 Ftlb/sec HP (req) = Power___ 550 Ftlb/sec Ex. Your building is 10 stories tall You are pumping 3000 gal of water to the top You want the water to reach the top in 1 minutes time How much horse power is required to lift the 3000 gal of water to the top? Height = 10 stories x 10â€™ per story = 100â€™ Weight of water = 3000 gal x 8.33 lb = 24990 lbs Force = 24990 lbs x 100â€™ = 2,499,000 Ftlbs Time = 1 min = 60 sec Power = 2,499,000 = 41,650 Ftlbs/sec 60 sec HP (req) = 41,650 Ftlbs/sec 550 Ftlbs/sec HP (req) = 75.72 HP Assuming Service factor of 1.25 HP = 75.72 X 1.25 =94.65 HP Recommended horse power = 100 for this scenario Harry Source
