Calculator: Pressure loss and linear flow velocity in pipes for water

Pérdidas de presión en tubos

Flow rate
Inner diameter
Pipe material

Pressure loss [bar]

Linear velocity [m/s]

The application evaluates the pressure losses in pipes in turbulent regime. You have to fill in 4 fields above (flow rate, diameter, material and length of the tube) and then click on 'Calculate'.
Regarding the linear flow velocity, you should not exceed the values ​​of 1.5 m/s (PET and PVC), 0.8 m/s (copper) and 1.0 m/s (steel), respectively, to avoid adverse effects in hydraulic lines.
The application was created using formulas from the book 'Irrigation in 3 steps'.
