Water Pumps

Model Selection

Centrifugal Type

To get the right pump for the job, following criteria should be determined

1. Required volume of water
2. Suction Head

The vertical distance from water level to the centerline of the pump

3. Discharge Head

The vertical distance from the centerline of the pump to final discharge outlet

4. Friction Loss

Resistance and loss of pressure due to the flow of water pass through the pipes and fittings within the pump system

5. Total Dynamic Head

Suction Head + Discharge Head + Friction Loss

Once the values are determined, the pump can be sized according to Required Volume of Water and Total Dynamic Head from Pump Characteristic Chart.
