Pressure Head :
Pressure Head :
- It is a specific type of pressure used in pump systems.
- It is a measurement of the height difference between the fluid being move and the discharge point.
- For example, let’s say you have a well of water that is 2 metres underground, and you have a tap and pipe system half a metre above ground.
- In fluid mechanics, it is the height of a liquid column that corresponds to a particular pressure exerted by the liquid column on the base of its container.
- It may also be known as static pressure head or simply static head (but not).
- Head is the maximum height that a pump can move fluid against gravity.
- The pump head or discharge head of a water pump is a measure of the power of a pump.
- The greater the pump head, the greater the pressure that the pump can generate.
- Another reason that head is used, is that as long as the liquid that is being pumped has a similar viscosity to water, the head will be identical for different liquids.
- This may or may not be the case when using pressure to define a pump’s characteristics.
- Water Pressure is the force that is needed to make water move from one place to another, or can also refer to the force the water exerts once released from a pipe or faucet.
- Typically, pressure pumps boost water pressure, and can also, improve flow rate.
- The formula for the calculation is given below.
- Pressure Head = (Pressure * 2.31) / Specific Gravity.
- Beside the formula this calculator works.
