Friction Head Loss Calculator
Friction head loss occurs any time fluid travels through a pipe. The level of friction loss depends on a few factors:
- The material the pipe is made from - a rougher inner pipe surface will result in a greater friction loss.
- The velocity of the liquid through the pipe - the higher the velocity, the greater the effect of friction on the liquid
- The total length of pipework - the longer the pipe, the more friction loss will occur
Fortunately, we have created a helpful friction loss calculator which will estimate the level of friction head loss in your system. Just input the values and the calculator will instantly give you a result.
