It is said that old pump men never die—they just lose their prime—and I fear that is partially true. Therefore, before I lose my prime, I thought I'd share some equations with some of you younger pump-heads, which allow you to calculate the best efficiency point (BEP) capacity and head of a centrifugal pump, knowing only certain impeller and casing dimensions and the pump rotative speed.

a pump, you must specify the type of pump and make sure it is capable of delivering a given flowrate at a given pressure. There are two main pump types: rotodynamic and positive-displacement. In a rotodynamic pump, a rotating impeller imparts energy to the fluid. The most common type of rotodynamic pump is the centrifugal pump (Figure 1).

Sep 22, 2018· Specific Speed of Pump. The specific speed “Nq” is a parameter derived from a dimensional analysis which allows a comparison of impellers of various pump sizes even when their operating similar Q -H range.. The specific speed can be used to classify the optimum impeller design. Specific Speed of pump (Nq) is defined as the speed in RPM at which a geometrically similar impeller

The continuity equation is one of the fundamental equations applied in fluid mechanics. It defines the conservation per unit of time of a flow volume through a given cross-section. For fluid flowing through a pipe, the flow velocity is inversely proportional to the pipe cross-sectional area. The continuity equation
