1 Lecture 10 Minor Losses & Pressure Requirements I. Minor Losses Minor (or fitting, or local ) hydraulic losses along pipes can often be estimated as a function of the velocity head of the water within the particular pipe section: V hml = Kr (08) g w here h ml is the minor loss (m or ft); V is the mean flow velocity, Q/A (m/s or fps); g is the ratio of weight to mass (9.81 m/s or 3. ft/s ); and K r is a coefficient, dependent on the type of fitting (valve, bend, transition, constriction, etc.) Minor losses include head losses through/past hydrants, couplers, valves, pipe elbows, tees and other fittings (see Tables 11.1 and 11.) For example, there is some loss when water flows through a hydrant, but also some los s when water flows in a pipe past the location of a closed hydrant K r = 0.3 to 0.6 for flow in a pipeline going past a closed hydrant, whereby the velocity in the pipeline is used to compute h ml K r = 0.4 to 0.8 for flow in a pipeline going past an open hydrant; again, the velocity in the pipeline is used to compute h ml K r = 6.0 to 8.0 for flow from a pipeline through a completely open hydrant. In this case, compute h ml using the velocity of the flow through the lateral fitting on the hydrant, not the flow in the source pipeline. For flow through a partially open hydrant, K r increases beyond the 6.0 to 8.0 magnitude, and the flow rate decreases correspondingly (but not linearly) In using Tables 11.1 and 11. for hydrants, the nominal diameter (3, 4, 5, and 6 inches) is the diameter of the hydrant and riser pipe, not the diameter of the source pipeline Use the diameter of the hydrant for K r and for computing V r. However, for line flow past a hydrant, use the velocity in the source pipeline, as indicated above. Always use the largest velocity along the path which the water travels this may be either upstream or downstream of the fitting Do not consider velocities along paths through which the water does not flow In Table 11., for a sudden contraction, K r should be defined as: Sprinkle & Trickle Irrigation Lectures Page 111 Merkley & Allen

2 r ( ) r K = D (09) where D r is the ratio of the small to large inside diameters (D small /D large ) Allen (1991) proposed a regression equation for gradual contractions and expansions using data from the Handbook of Hydraulics (Brater & King 1976): where K f is defined as: ( ) K = K 1 D (10) r f r ( ) Kf = 0.7 cos(f) cos(f) 3.cos(f) (11) and f is the angle of the expansion or contraction in the pipe walls (degrees or radians), where f 0 For straight sides (no expansion or contraction), f = 0 (whereby K f = 0.03) For an abrupt change in pipe diameter (no transition), f = 90 (whereby K f = 0.7) The above regression equation for K f gives approximate values for approximate measured data, some of which has been disputed In any case, the true minor head loss depends on more than just the angle of the transition Expansion Contraction For a sudden (abrupt) expansion, the head loss can also be approximated as a function of the difference of the mean flow velocities upstream and downstream: Merkley & Allen Page 11 Sprinkle & Trickle Irrigation Lectures

3 h ml = ( V V ) us g ds (1) An extreme (albeit unrealistic) case is for V ds = 0 and h ml = Vus /g (total conversion of velocity head) Various other equations (besides those given above) for estimating head loss in pipe expansions and contractions have been proposed and used by researchers and engineers Minor Loss Example A mainline with an open lateral hydrant valve has a diameter of 00 mm ID upstream of the hydrant, and 150 mm downstream of the hydrant The diameter of the hydrant opening to the lateral is 75 mm Q upstream = 70 lps and Q lateral = 16 lps The pressure in the mainline upstream of the hydrant is 300 kpa The mean flow velocities are: V V m / s = =.3m/s π(0.00 m) m / s = = 3.06m/s π(0.150 m) (13) (14) Sprinkle & Trickle Irrigation Lectures Page 113 Merkley & Allen m / s Vhydrant = = 3.6m/s (15) π(0.075 m) 4

4 Note that V 00 and V 150 are both above the normal design limit of about m/s The head loss past the open hydrant is based on the higher of the upstream and downstream velocities, which in this example is 3.06 m/s From Table 11.1, the K r for flow past the open hydrant (line flow; 6 mainline) is 0.5; thus, ( ) (3.06) hml = 0.5 = 0.4m (16) past (9.81) The head loss due to the contraction from 00 mm to 150 mm diameter (at the hydrant) depends on the transition If it were an abrupt transition, then: 150 Kr = = (17) And, if it were a 45 transition, K f = 0.67, also giving a K r of 0.13 Then, the head loss is: (3.06) hml = 0.13 = 0.06m (18) contraction (9.81) ( ) Thus, the total minor loss in the mainline in the vicinity of the open hydrant is about = 0.30 m (0.43 psi). The loss through the hydrant hydrant): ( ) h ml through is determined by taking K r = 8.0 (Table 11.1; 3 (3.6) = 8.0 = 5.3m (19) (9.81) This is a high loss through the hydrant (about 7.6 psi), so it may be advisable to use a larger diameter hydrant. The pressure in the mainline downstream of the hydrant is (9.81 kpa/m): P V = P γ( hml ) past +γ V150 (.3) (3.06) P150 = 300 (9.81)(0.4) = 95kPa (9.81) g (0) Merkley & Allen Page 114 Sprinkle & Trickle Irrigation Lectures

6 IV. Valving a Pump A throttle valve may be required at a pump: (a) Filling of the system s pipes The head is low, and the flow rate is high Pump efficiency is low and power requirements may be higher Water hammer damage can result as the system fills Air vents and other appurtenances can be blown off For the above reasons, it is advisable to fill the system slowly (b) To avoid cavitation, which damages the pump, pipes and appurtenances (c) To control the TDH as the sprinklers are moved to different sets Throttle valves can be automatic or manual Pressure Requirements & Pumps I. Types of Pumps 1. Positive Displacement Piston pumps Rotary (gear) pumps Extruding (flexible tube) pumps. Variable Displacement Centrifugal pumps Injector pumps Jet pumps The above lists of pump types are not exhaustive Positive displacement pumps have a discharge that is nearly independent of the downstream (resistive) pressure. That is, they produce a flow rate that is relatively independent of the total dynamic head, TDH Merkley & Allen Page 116 Sprinkle & Trickle Irrigation Lectures

7 Positive Displacement Pumps Axial-Flow Impeller Closed Centrifugal Pump Impeller Jet Pump Sprinkle & Trickle Irrigation Lectures Page 117 Merkley & Allen

8 But, with positive displacement pumps, the required pumping energy is a linear function of the pressure Positive displacement pumps can be used with thick, viscous liquids. They are not commonly used in irrigation and drainage, except for the injection of chemicals into pipes and for sprayers Piston-type pumps can develop high heads at low flow rates Air injection, or jet pumps are typically used in some types of well drilling operations. The air bubbles effectively reduce the liquid density and this assists in bringing the drillings up out of the well. Needs a large capacity air compressor. Homologous pumps are geometrically similar pumps, but of different sizes II. Centrifugal Pumps 1. Volute Case This is the most common type of irrigation and drainage pump (excluding deep well pumps). Produce relatively high flow rates at low pressures.. Diffuser (Turbine) The most common type for deep wells. Designed to lift water to high heads, typically using multiple identical stages in series, stacked up on top of each other. 3. Mixed Flow Uses a combination of centrifugal and axial flow action. For high capacity at low heads. 4. Axial Flow Water flows along the axis of impeller rotation, like a boat propeller. Appropriate for high discharge under very low lift (head). An example is the pumping plant on the west side of the Great Salt Lake. 5. Regenerative The characteristics of these pumps are those of a combination of centrifugal and rotary, or gear, pumps. Shut-off head is well-defined, but efficiency is relatively low. Not used in irrigation and drainage. In general, larger pumps have higher maximum efficiencies (they are more expensive, and more effort is given toward making them more efficient) Impellers can be open, semi-open, or closed. Open impellers are usually better at passing solids in the pumped liquid, but they are not as strong as closed impellers Double suction inlet pumps take water in from both sides and can operate without axial thrust Merkley & Allen Page 118 Sprinkle & Trickle Irrigation Lectures

9 Closed Impeller Semi-Open Impeller Open Impeller Characteristic Curve The pump characteristic curve defines the relationship between total dynamic head, TDH, and discharge, Q The characteristic curve is unique for a given pump design, impeller diameter, and pump speed The characteristic curve has nothing to do with the system in which the pump operates The shut-off head is the TDH value when Q is zero (but the pump is still operating) The shut-off head can exceed the recommended operating pressure, or even the bursting pressure, especially with some thin-wall plastic pipes Total Dynamic Head, TDH Shut-Off Head Efficiency Characterisic Curve Power 0 0 Flow Rate, Q Sprinkle & Trickle Irrigation Lectures Page 119 Merkley & Allen

10 III. Centrifugal Pumps in Parallel Pumps in PARALLEL means that the total flow is divided into two or more pumps Typical installations are for a single inlet pipe, branched into two pumps, with the outlets from the pumps converging to a single discharge pipe If only one of the pumps operates, some type of valve may be ic He ad, TDH Total Dynam 0 0 Flow Rate, Q required so that flow does not flow backwards through the idle pump Flow rate is additive in this case pump 1 One Pump Two in Par allel pump Two Pumps in Parallel IV. Centrifugal Pumps in Series Pumps in SERIES means that the total flow passes through each of two or more pumps in line Typical installations are for increasing pressure, such as with a booster pump Head is additive in this case Merkley & Allen Page 10 Sprinkle & Trickle Irrigation Lectures

11 Total Dynam ic Hea d, TDH Two in Series One Pump 0 0 Flow Rate, Q It is common for turbine (well) pumps to operate in series For centrifugal pumps, it is necessary to exercise caution when installing in series because the efficiency can be adversely affected May need straightening vanes between pumps to reduce swirling Note that the downstream pump could cause negative pressure at the outlet of the US pump, which can be a problem pump 1 pump Two Pumps in Series Sprinkle & Trickle Irrigation Lectures Page 11 Merkley & Allen
