Pipe stress calc. for IN-LINE pumps

Pipe stress calc. for IN-LINE pumps

My customer has selected Vertical In-Line pump for power station(16 "suction and discharge flange). I need to do calc for 16" pipe-line with pump hang on pipe only.My
pump-motor unit is approx. 10000lbs.

Does anyone have some no to complicate method for pipe stress calculation? Is there any standard recommendation (ANSI, API...)about max. load from a pump to pipe?

Is it any recommendation for baseplate?

RE: Pipe stress calc. for IN-LINE pumps


This seems like an extreme concentrated pipe load, even for a 16"NPS line...

Most vertical in-line pumps I am familiar with are equipped with either lugs on the lower casing or a flanged support ring to support the pump. (the Dean Pump Division of METPRO as well as the Peerless Pump company come to mind)

You also should post this question in the "pump engineering" forum.....not the ACPPA forum

Piping stress analysis involves developing a structural model, imposing loads and evaluating results. A piping "Code check" is frequently also performed. Specialists in this field can perform an analysis over the internet for a fee.

(Look at the CAESAR-II Program examples at www.coade.com)

Hope that this helps............................MJC
