I’ve worked on trying to find this equation all day and am desperate for help 🤣.
I have a 200’ 3/8” ID hose, 100’ of it is totally vertical and the other 100’ is laying on the ground running to a pump 12” off the ground. The hose is some sort of plastic, there is no writing on the hose to verify what it is. The grease has a 80 minute viscosity and the temperature is 40 deg F. In the event that hose is fully primed, how much pressure would it take to overcome that static friction?
Thanks in advance, please share your work!
