2. Calculation of the overflow line

The overflow line is to be so designed that the dy- namic and static pressure losses due to flow through the line with the topping-up rate will not exceed the design pressure of the storage tanks.

This means that

Δp ges = Δp dyn + Δp stat < design pressure

––––––––––––––

1 In the systems handled in these Guidelines laminar flow (Re < Re kr ) can be assumed

2 The Zeta values needed for the calculation are to be taken from recognized standards or publications

3.1 Calculation of the dynamical pressure losses

The loss of pressure in a pipeline results from the resistance behaviour of the straight pipe lengths and their fittings for changes in direction, cross section and flow as well as from their components (valves, sight glasses) and can be determined as follows:

3.2 Correction factor and equivalent diameter

The allowable tolerances for pipes given in the stan- dards are to be taken into consideration by means of a correction factor.

This can be approximately calculated as follows:

3.2.1 Pressure losses for pipes connected in par- allel

If two or more overflow pipe lines are lead from a storage tank to the collecting manifold, the following applies:

same pressure loss:

Δp dyn = const.

The solution of the individual equations (3) can only

be found by iteration, since λ = f(Re) and Re = f(w).

3.2.2 Pressure losses for pipes connected in se- ries

Analogous to 2.2.1 the pressure losses for the individ- ual pipes are to be determined according to equation

(3).

The pressure loss of all pipes results from the sum of all individual pressure losses:

Δp dyn =

Δp dyn1

+

Δp dyn2 + …… Δp dynn

4. Calculation of statical pressure losses

The statical pressure loss results from the geodetic heights of the overflow pipelines, measured between tank top and overflow summit (peak) of the pipes. This is to be determined as follows:

Δp stat = h geod g ⋅ ρ
