.  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.
