The Nikuradse-Prandtl-von Karman (NPK) equation is the most widely used expression to determine friction factors for fluid flow in smooth pipes [1–3]. It implicitly relates the friction factor (expressed here as f; sometimes called λ) to the Reynolds number, Re. It is shown in Equation (1).   ( 1)     Because the friction factor appears on both sides of the equation, an...

To optimize process control and overall plant performance, magnetic flowmeters (mag meters) are the most widely used devices in many industrial flow-measurement applications. Mag meters are used to measure the flow of water and other conductive liquids by applying a magnetic field to the flowing liquid. Following Faraday’s law of electromagnetic induction, conductive liquid flowing through the...

Head loss due to friction for fluids traveling through pipes, tubes and ducts is a critical parameter for solving turbulent-flow problems in the chemical process industries. The Colebrook equation is used to assess hydraulic resistance for turbulent flow in both smooth- and rough-walled pipes. The equation contains a dimensionless fluid-flow friction coefficient that must be calculated for the properties...

Rotating machines, such as pumps, compressors, gas turbines, steam turbines and electric motors, play crucial roles in most chemical process industries (CPI) facilities. Increasingly, advanced condition monitoring is being used to improve the operation and maintenance of these workhorse components. The use of well-designed condition-monitoring systems, predictive-maintenance strategies and failure...
