Learn about the effect of trimming the impeller on pump efficiency and power usage
There are many courses on how to size a centrifugal pump. In the past, the only solution in many cases was to trim the impeller to make it work properly or to close a valve to achieve the right flow. Now, with the use of variable speed drives, we have found new ways of doing things.
Participants will learn and/or further their understanding of:
- Reading and interpreting the pump curve
- The effect of trimming an impeller on the pump performance curve
- Evaluating and using the pump efficiency curves to make pump decisions
- The effect of trimming the impeller on pump efficiency and power usage
