Unformatted text preview: Will the basin overflow? 3. (3 points) One recommendation to prevent the neutralization basin in Example 4.1 from overflowing is to install a restriction orifice in the piping system to decrease the maximum flow rate. Estimate the maximum orifice diameter. 4. (6 points) An orifice meter with flange taps is to be installed in a 2 inch Schedule 40 steel pipe to measure the flow rate of n-hexane. The maximum flow rate is expected to be 75 gpm with = 40.240 lb m /ft 3 and = 0.2643 cP. (a) For a differential pressure of 100 in-H 2 O, what is the orifice diameter to the nearest 0.001 inch? (b) Estimate the permanent pressure loss in psi using a loss coefficient for the orifice. Compare the result to the permanent loss calculated from the ASME formula....
