Pressure Loss in Schedule 40 Steel Pipes


Water flow and pressure loss in schedule 40 steel pipes - Imperial and SI units - gallons per minute, liters per second
and cubic meters per hour
Sponsored Links

The tables below indicates friction loss for water flow through ASME/ANSI B36.10/19 schedule 40 steel pipe.
The pressure drop calculations are made with the D'Arcy-Weisbach Equation.
Fluid : Water
Pipe : Steel Pipe - Schedule 40
Temperature : 20.0 oC (68.0 oF)
Density : 998.3 kg/m3 (62.0 lb/ft3)
Kinematic Viscosity : 1.004 10-6 m 2/s (0.01 stokes) (1.08 10-5 ft2/s)
Pipe Roughness Coefficient : 4.5 10-5

Nominal Pipe Size: 3/8"
