Using the Flow Coefficient to Characterize the Performance of a Piping System

Fluid flow through a piping system that consists of components such as valves, fittings, heat exchangers, nozzles, filters, and pipelines will result in a loss of energy due to the friction between the fluid and internal surfaces, changes in the direction of the flow path, obstructions in the flow path, and changes in the cross-section and shape of the flow path.
