How Fast Can It Go? Three Factors Determining the Linear Speed of Liquids
Most food and beverage plants operate pressurized liquid systems designed to move water, or liquids with viscosities similar to water. Whereas liquids with high viscosities must consider pressure drop as a primary design consideration, systems designed for lower viscosities are mostly concerned with the velocity of the fluid moving through the pipe. Linear speed requirements will vary based on the function of the systems and piping material used. In the June issue of Hixson’s From Experience newsletter, we look at the three factors which combine to determine the actual linear speed.
