The same way that a runner prepares for a 5K race, a pump user must prepare to ensure that a pump will run efficiently and effectively for the application. Unfortunately, quite often the pump user has a system (or a course) that is laid out in such a way that the pump (or a runner) is ill-prepared for the requirements.
There is a solution: Understanding and proper use of a system head curve is the ultimate preparation for the pump’s running performance.
Through the 5K race analogy, you will learn:
- Why a system head curve is important
- Catastrophic effects resulting from using a pump not equipped for the job
- Cavitation (suction and discharge)
- Power inefficiencies
- The effect of adding the varying components (distance, elevation changes, turns and bends, narrow openings, and narrow point of exit)
- The METHODS system for proper pump sizing
- How to develop a system head curve overlay and how to read it to understand pump performance
- And more
This webinar’s goal is to provide users with an understanding of the highly useful system head curve tool, which can save a lot of energy, time and headache. Preparing with these tips will keep a pump running at top efficiency and allow the pump user to finish with a win.
