Forum about flow calculators available on pipeflowcalculations.com and how to find solution for your fluid flow problem.

I've recent done some pressure drop calculations on a closed system using a centrifugal pump. Each service has flow regulation valves to ensure proper flow. I am getting a high pressure (approximately 35 psi) at the pump suction but I'm pretty sure in a real life situation this pressure would regulate out. Can someone provide insight into the pump suction pressure that is showing in my calculations
You might have that pressure due to hydrostatic pressure. What is elevation difference off the system?
Even if the system is closed and for example you have 50 m height difference, pressure on the lowest point will have at least that 50 m water pressure.
