Hold Time

Post by cjacobs218 » Mon Jun 13, 2011 5:59 am

I have a centrifugal pump with a flow rate of 6 gallons per minute which feeds a 2 inch pipe that has a pressure control valve set at 20 pounds per square inch. The reduced pressure fluid goes thru a holding tube that hold 11.44 gallons and discharges thru a 3/8" orifice to an open top tank. What will my holding time be? How does my holding time change if I change the pressure control valve to be set at 24 pounds per square inch?

Thanks for you help.
