Pump sizing and selection – can you afford to get this wrong?
It’s worth a read…
To sum up the basic pumping principles are:
- Proper pump selection is key to reliability.
- The closer the duty point is to best efficiency point (BEP), the better the reliability.
- Be careful how much safety margin is added to pressure drop calculation.
- If a pump is used with variable speed drive, this may influence the pump selected.
