Estou avaliando um projeto de dimensionamento de uma bomba para carregamento simultâneo de 8 carretas.. como avaliar se a vazão apresentada é adequada? Que variáveis preciso considerar? 


Desde já, agradeço a ajuda!

Translation from Portuguese to English. Google translator.

"I am evaluating a project to design a pump for simultaneous loading of 8 trailers. How can I assess whether the flow rate presented is adequate? What variables do I need to consider?"


Can you share with us a schematic of your process?

I believe your system is a loop, from tank to tank, and you withdraw material from a header to fill each trailer.

You should have somewhere a way to control the feed to each trailer (mass flow meter and valve) and stop it when quantity loaded is reached.

Prepare a mass balance and define the time required to fill each trailer, this will help you to define the flow rate required.


Waiting for your feedback.
