where

Dh = Head loss in feet of flowing fluid

u = Velocity in ft/sec

g = 32.2 ft/sec2

P = Pressure in lb/ft2

V = Specific volume in ft3/lb

Z = Elevation in feet

E = Head loss due to friction in feet of flowing fluid

In Equation 1 Dh is called the velocity head. This

expression has a wide range of utility not appreciated by

many. It is used as is for

2. Relating fitting losses, etc.

For a sparger consisting of a large pipe having small

holes drilled along its length Equation 1 applies directly.

This is because the hole diameter and the length of fluid

travel passing through the hole are similar dimensions.

An orifice on the other hand needs a coefficient in

Equation 1 because hole diameter is a much larger dimension than length of travel (say 1/8 in. for many orifices).

chapter.

For compressible fluids one must be careful that when

sonic or choking velocity is reached, further decreases

in downstream pressure do not produce additional flow.

This occurs at an upstream to downstream absolute pressure ratio of about 2 : 1. Critical flow due to sonic velocity has practically no application to liquids. The speed of

sound in liquids is very high. See Sonic Velocity later

in this chapter.

Still more mileage can be gotten out of Dh = u2/2g

when using it with Equation 2, which is the famous

Bernoulli equation. The terms are

However, there are many situations where by chance, or

on purpose, u2/2g head is converted to PV or vice versa.

We purposely change u2/2g to PV gradually in the following situations:

1. Entering phase separator drums to cut down turbulence and promote separation

2. Entering vacuum condensers to cut down pressure

drop

We build up PV and convert it in a controlled manner to

u2/2g in a form of tank blender. These examples are discussed under appropriate sections.

A handy relationship for turbulent flow in commercial

steel pipes is:

r = Density, lb/ft3

d = Internal pipe diameter, in.

This relationship holds for a Reynolds number range

of 2,100 to 106. For smooth tubes (assumed for heat

exchanger tubeside pressure drop calculations), a constant of 23,000 should be used instead of 20,000.

Recommended Velocities

Here are various recommended flows, velocities, and

pressure drops for various piping services.

Allowable Flow, Velocity and Pressure Drop

Flow and Pressure Drop

Note:

(1) 600 PSIG steam is at 750F., 175 PSIG and 30 PSIG are saturated.

(2) On 600 PSIG flow ratings, internal pipe sizes for larger nominal

diameters were taken as follows: 18/16.5, 14/12.8, 12/11.6,

10/9.75.

(3) If other actual I.D. pipe sizes are used, or if local superheat exists

on 175 PSIG or 30 PSIG systems, the allowable pressure drop shall

be the governing design criterion.

Two-phase Flow

Two-phase (liquid/vapor) flow is quite complicated and

even the long-winded methods do not have high accuracy.

You cannot even have complete certainty as to which flow

regime exists for a given situation. Volume 2 of Ludwigs

design books1 and the GPSA Data Book2 give methods

for analyzing two-phase behavior.

For our purposes, a rough estimate for general twophase situations can be achieved with the Lockhart and

Martinelli3 correlation. Perrys4 has a writeup on this correlation. To apply the method, each phases pressure drop

is calculated as though it alone was in the line. Then the

following parameter is calculated:

12

X = [ DPL DPG ]

The X factor is then related to either YL or YG.

Whichever one is chosen is multiplied by its companion

pressure drop to obtain the total pressure drop. The following equation5 is based on points taken from the YL and

YG curves in Perrys4 for both phases in turbulent flow

(the most common case):

YL = 4.6X-1.78 + 12.5X-0.68 + 0.65

YG = X2YL

to 100.

For fog or spray type flow, Ludwig1 cites Bakers6 suggestion of multiplying Lockhart and Martinelli by two.

For the frequent case of flashing steam-condensate

lines, Ruskan7 supplies the handy graph shown above.

This chart provides a rapid estimate of the pressure drop

of flashing condensate, along with the fluid velocities.

Example: If 1,000 lb/hr of saturated 600-psig condensate is

flashed to 200 psig, what size line will give a pressure drop

of 1.0 psi/100 ft or less? Enter at 600 psig below insert on

the right, and read down to a 200 psig end pressure. Read

left to intersection with 1,000 lb/hr flowrate, then up vertically to select a 11/2 in for a 0.28 psi/100 ft pressure drop.

Note that the velocity given by this lines up if 16.5 ft/s are

200 psig to find the velocity correction factor 0.41, so that

the corrected velocity is 6.8 ft/s.

Control Valves

Notes:

1. References 1 and 2 were used extensively for this

section. The sizing procedure is generally that of

Fisher Controls Company.

2. Use manufacturers data where available. This handbook will provide approximate parameters applicable

to a wide range of manufacturers.

3. For any control valve design be sure to use one of

the modern methods, such as that given here, that

takes into account such things as control valve pressure recovery factors and gas transition to incompressible flow at critical pressure drop.

maximum velocity. At this point the pressure reduces to

its lowest value. If this pressure is lower than the liquids

vapor pressure, flashing will produce bubbles or cavities

of vapor. The pressure will rise or recover downstream

of the lowest pressure point. If the pressure rises to above

the vapor pressure, the bubbles or cavities collapse. This

causes noise, vibration, and physical damage.

When there is a choice, design for no flashing. When

there is no choice, locate the valve to flash into a vessel

if possible. If flashing or cavitation cannot be avoided,

select hardware that can withstand these severe conditions. The downstream line will have to be sized for two

phase flow. It is suggested to use a long conical adaptor

from the control valve to the downstream line.

When sizing liquid control valves first use

sizing purposes, psi

Km = Valve recovery coefficient (see Table 3)

rc = Critical pressure ratio (see Figures 1 and 2)

This gives the maximum DP that is effective in producing flow. Above this DP no additional flow will be pro-

The ASME code1 provides the basic requirements for

over-pressure protection. Section I, Power Boilers, covers

fired and unfired steam boilers. All other vessels including exchanger shells and similar pressure containing

equipment fall under Section VIII, Pressure Vessels. API

RP 520 and lesser API documents supplement the ASME

code. These codes specify allowable accumulation, which

is the difference between relieving pressure at which the

valve reaches full rated flow and set pressure at which the

valve starts to open. Accumulation is expressed as percentage of set pressure in Table 1. The articles by Rearick2

and Isqacs3 are used throughout this section.

Table 1

Accumulation Expressed as Percentage of Set Pressure

where

Dh = Head loss in feet of flowing fluid

u = Velocity in ft/sec

g = 32.2 ft/sec2

This will give a conservative relief valve area. For

compressible fluids use Dh corresponding to 1/2P1 if head

difference is greater than that corresponding to 1/2P1 (since

sonic velocity occurs). If head difference is below that

corresponding to 1/2P1 use actual Dh.

Two examples are

1. Cooling water that can be blocked in with hot fluid

still flowing on the other side of an exchanger.

2. Long lines to tank farms that can lie stagnant and

Sizing

Use manufacturers sizing charts and data where available. In lieu of manufacturers data use the formula

from fire to liquid containing vessels see Determination

of Rates of Discharge.

The set pressure of a conventional valve is affected by

back pressure. The spring setting can be adjusted to compensate for constant back pressure. For a variable back

pressure of greater than 10% of the set pressure, it is customary to go to the balanced bellows type which can generally tolerate variable back pressure of up to 40% of set

pressure. Table 2 gives standard orifice sizes.

the heat of an external fire). Consider bottom venting

for reactive liquids.5

Plants, situations, and causes of overpressure tend to

be dissimilar enough to discourage preparation of generalized calculation procedures for the rate of discharge. In

lieu of a set procedure most of these problems can be

solved satisfactorily by conservative simplification and

analysis. It should be noted also that, by general assumption, two unrelated emergency conditions will not occur

simultaneously.

The first three causes of overpressure on our list are

more amenable to generalization than the others and will

be discussed.

Fire

(Reference 4). One form of their equation for liquid containing vessels is

Q = 21,000 FAw0.82

where

Q = Heat absorption, Btu/hr

Aw = Total wetted surface, ft2

F = Environment factor

Bare vessel = 1.0

Insulated = 0.3/insulation thickness, in.

Underground storage = 0.0

Earth covered above grade = 0.03

The height above grade for calculating wetted surface

should be

1. For vertical vesselsat least 25 feet above grade or

other level at which a fire could be sustained.

2. For horizontal vesselsat least equal to the

maximum diameter.

3. For spheres or spheroidswhichever is greater, the

equator or 25 feet.

Three cases exist for vessels exposed to fire as pointed

out by Wong.6 A gas filled vessel, below 25 ft (flame

heights usually stay below this), cannot be protected by

a PSV alone. The metal wall will overheat long before the

pressure reaches the PSV set point. Wong discusses a

number of protective measures. A vessel containing a

high boiling point liquid is similar because very little

vapor is formed at the relieving pressure, so there is very

little heat of vaporization to soak up the fires heat input.

A low-boiling-point liquid, in boiling off, has a good

heat transfer coefficient to help cool the wall and buy

time. Calculate the time required to heat up the liquid and

vaporize the inventory. If the time is less than 15 minutes

18

treat the vessel as being gas filled. If the time is more than

1520 minutes treat it as a safe condition. However, in

this event, be sure to check the final pressure of the vessel

with the last drop of liquid for PSV sizing.

Heat Exchanger Tube Failure

of one tube as stated in API RP 5204 (one tube cut

in half exposes two cross sections at the cut).4

2. Use Dh = u2/2g to calculate leakage. Since this acts

similar to an orifice, we need a coefficient; use 0.7.

So,

u = 0.7 2gDh

For compressible fluids, if the downstream head is less

than 1/2 the upstream head, use 1/2 the upstream head as Dh.

Otherwise use the actual Dh.

1. Check metallurgy for light hydrocarbons flashing during relief. Very low temperatures can be

produced.

2. Always check for reaction force from the tailpipe.

3. Hand jacks are a big help on large relief valves for

several reasons. One is to give the operator a chance

to reseat a leaking relief valve.

4. Flat seated valves have an advantage over bevel

seated valves if the plant forces have to reface the

surfaces (usually happens at midnight).

5. The maximum pressure from an explosion of a

hydrocarbon and air is 7 initial pressure, unless it

occurs in a long pipe where a standing wave can

be set up. It may be cheaper to design some small

vessels to withstand an explosion than to provide a

safety relief system. It is typical to specify 1/4 as

minimum plate thickness (for carbon steel only).
