ChemE 3230 (Spring 2009) Problem Set #5 (Due by 03/13/2009) 1.0 A plant piping system takes a liquid process stream ( µ = 60 cP, S.G. = 0.9) from one vessel at 20 psig to another vessel at 80 psig. The system contains 1000 ft. of 2 in Sch 40 pipe, 40 standard elbows, and 7 globe valves. If the downstream vessel is 15 ft. higher than the upstream vessel, what horsepower pump would be required to transport the fluid at a rate of 100 gpm, assuming a pump efficiency of 85%? [25 points]
