Pump System Analysis: Understanding Performance and System Curves

by PSG | Jun 25, 2021
Process Technology

The performance of a pump can best be assessed using reference values. They also help to diagnose performance-related problems. If the operator creates performance curves, he can correct long-standing problems and gather basic knowledge and reference points to set his pumps to optimal performance. This helps to ensure economical, safe and reliable operation of the pumps for years to come.

Context is a useful tool for problem solving and decision making. Many of life’s decisions are arrived at only after a series of reference points are reviewed. For instance, anyone would call a 50 Euro loaf of bread unrealistically expensive, because a lifetime of bread buying tells you that it should cost much less. The same principle applies when attempting to analyse the performance of the pumping system in an industrial-manufacturing application with a liquid-handling function. When assessing pump performance and diagnosing any performance-related issues, having reference points with which to compare current performance can be an invaluable tool, resulting in a streamlined, cost-effective, durable, safe and completely optimised operation that will provide years of reliable service.
