Back Pressure in a pipe
Problem Statement :
How do I go about this calculation ?
Background of the problem:
This is for a Rotary Breaker project where we have a 24" Sparge Pipe that is sprays hot water onto the huge chunks of solids being processed inside a rotary breaker. Rotary breakers belong the screening family ; where the machine breaks the solids inside a giant cylindrical section (this project ; 16ft Dia) and keep screening the materials as the go forwards in length. Water is used to form a semi slurry state to help fascilitate the breaking

Not my field at all but..
If the outlet of the pipe is at atmospheric pressure isn't the back pressure at the pump end just the pressure drop down the pipe + atmospheric?
There are online calculators that might help..
