KB » Piping Pressure Drop Estimation

Summary: Preoperational testing will identify various piping issues such as excessive pressure drop
Applies to: Test engineer, Startup engineer, Design engineer
Piping less than some diameter, for example 3 inch OD in the original fleet of nuclear power plants built in the USA was field run. In new plants where the design is supported by 3-D CAD designs all piping trajectories are established prior to construction. Therefore in the new plants piping pressure drop allowances should be fairly well known.
