Hello! I am a new OpenFOAM

I am a new OpenFOAM user, and I am trying to use it to simulate the laminar flow of a slurry through a new designed cone valve.
How can I simulate the pressure lost between inlet and outlet?
An another interesting point is the reaction force between inlet and outlet.
I estimate that the pressure lost between inlet and outlet is approx. 1 - 4 bar.
The slurry is sewage sludge and is high dewatered (nu=0.6m^2 s approx., Ux=1m/s)
I used the module IcoFoam and ParaFoam for post processing. In ParaFoam I only get the results of velocity U and pressure p in the cells and in the cavity, not between inlet and outlet.
I hope someone can help me.
And many thanks in advance.
