Damaging effects of Low-Velocity Flow In Piping And Pipelines

Is Low-Velocity Flow Bad? Many of you are aware that high velocities in piping and pipelines lead to many operational and maintenance issues like vibration, noise, pipe material erosion, and a combined corrosion-erosion issue. American Petroleum Institute’s defunct document API RP 14E, defines a formula for determining erosional velocities in two-phase flows which states that …
