To find the pressure drop, enter the chart at 1,000 GPM and intersect the line representing a 6" FT Strainer. Read to the left to intersection of SG = 1. Follow diagonal guide lines down to SG = 0.6. Read straight to the left for the corrected pressure drop. In the example, the FT Strainer would have a pressure drop of 0.5 PSID. The strainer section would depend upon piping configuration and allowable pressure drop.

To find the pressure drop, enter the chart at 1,000 GPM and intersect the line representing a 6” FT strainer. Read to the left to intersection of SG = 1. Follow diagonal guide lines down to SG = 0.6. Read straight to the left for the corrected pressure drop. In the example, the FT strainer would have a pressure drop of 0.45 PSID. The strainer section would depend upon piping configuration and allowable pressure drop.
