Topic:  Modern Pump Selection for System Efficiency

This advanced seminar takes in depth look at pump selection to maximize system efficiency. We will learn to calculate system curves for both open and closed systems. We will examine the differences between constant and variable head and how this can impact system pumping efficiency during part load operation. This presentation will also address what “Efficiency Islands” are, how they can impact operating results along with key application considerations with examples. Below is an outline of what will be covered:

  • Basic Pump Affinity Laws
  • Pump Head Loss Calculations
  • Pump Curve Review
  • System Curve Review
  • Pump Selection Examples
