heads must be converted to pump equivalent heads and added together, or all component losses must be expressed in pressure units so the total of these pressures can be converted to an equivalent pump head at the pump temperature. From Eqs. 2 and 3, the pump equivalent head is h2 = — h1

where the subscript 1 denotes the component and the subscript 2 denotes the pump. From Eq. 6, individual component head losses can be converted to lb/ft2 (N/m2) using or
