. A 2 inch diameter pipe has been chosen to pass 65 GPM. Can this diameter be used for the suction line? If not , what line diameter should be specified?
2 inch diameter pipe can not be used as suction line because at 65 GPM flow rate the velocity in this line would be approx.. 6.6 Ft/sec. This is too high a velocity for suction line.
A 6 inch line should be specified so that the velocity is approx.. 2.32 which is acceptable for suction line.
