Please look at your entire post, from your handle (mechanical engineers work in hundreds of industries) to your one-sentence post and ask yourself "If I was sitting in (say) Russia would this convey enough information to allow someone to answer my question without a bunch of back and forth?"

You might want to address something like:
  • What are you injecting (liquid or gas for starters)?
  • What pressures/temperatures (is the fluid near a phase-transition temperature, chokes can be a huge problem near phase changes)?
  • What magnitude of flow are you expecting?
  • What is the goal of the injection (in Oil & Gas, it could be for secondary/tertiary recovery or simply for produced water disposal, other industries likely have other things they "reinject" for)?
  • Are you experiencing a problem or is this a prospective design?
I've just spent 20 times as much effort on your post as you did. Could you give us a reason for caring enough to try to give you answers instead of questions?

In my industry nearly nothing is "always", just like nearly nearly nothing is "never".

Short answer no.

Long answer - see above.

Remember - More details = better answers
Also: If you get a response it's polite to respond to it.

Always??? Every time in the whole wide world no matter what the circumstances are? No.

Good luck,
