## Mercury monitor appliance loss

### 10psi

52

## Preferred method to supply a mercury monitor

### Single 3” supply hose with maximum inlet pressure of 150psi

53

## Common causes of friction loss

### Kinks(bends in hose); nozzles; appliances; protruding gaskets in the couplings; delaminating hose; pump piping; and diameter restrictions

54

## 1st principle of friction loss

### All variables being the same, friction loss will vary directly with the length of the hose or pipe

55

## 2nd principle of friction loss

### Friction loss varies approximately with the square of the increase in the velocity of the flow. If the flow rate is doubled, the friction loss will be four times greater

56

## 3rd principle of friction loss

### When flow remains constant, friction loss will decrease as diameter of hose increases

57

## 4th principle of friction loss

### For any given flow velocity, friction loss is independent of pressure. The velocity of water through a hose line, not pressure, causes friction loss

58

## Friction loss coefficients
