A pump is delivering water at atmospheric pressure to an
elevation of 400 m. Elevation of the pump centerline is 10 m. Find the static
The main feedwater pump of a PWR delivers water to the steam
generator at a rate of 15,000 GPM (946.3 lit/s). The steam generator pressure
is 900 psia (6.2 MPa). The difference between the discharge and the pump
centerline elevation is 100 ft (30.48 m). Find the pump static discharge head.
Water temperature is 450 F (232.2 C).
