Flow Loop Operating Pressure

Flow Loop Operating Pressure

(OP)
Hi guys,

I'm working on a two-phase flow loop (water+air) and I'm estimating the pressure drop through a horizontal pipeline. I need to know how to calculate the operating pressure of the flow loop since I have a pump and compressor. Is there something called "equivalent operating pressure" of both the pump operating pressure and the compressor operating pressure?

Thanks

RE: Flow Loop Operating Pressure

The pressure at any one point in a single pipe will be the same regardless of whether it is liquid or gas. This is a fundamental law of physics.

Also please don't double post.
