Kitec Flow Chart

Kitec’s larger inside diameter and consistently smooth interior means better long term flows.

Surge Pressure Calculation

Surges generated by velocity changes upstream in the main or downstream in a user’s plumbing system should be considered when designing municipal service lines.

The following table shows surge pressures resulting from an instantaneous change in velocity of 1 foot / second (0.3048 meters / second). Surge and change in velocity are directly related; therefore, the surge resulting from higher velocity changes is a multiple of the values given in this table. (i.e. the surge for a velocity change of 3 ft/s is three times the value at 1ft/s).
