In this webinar, we describe pressure drop correlations and provide recommendations for their use. Many flow circuits include pipe diameter variations and piping components such as orifice plates, contractions, and expansions. Accurate prediction of the single- and two-phase pressure drops across these components is necessary to calculate the total pressure drop in a piping system and inside heat exchangers.
