Summary A plain language guide to the tools and techniques needed to ensure efficiency, Working Guide to Pump and Pumping Stations provides practicing engineer and senior field personnel with a quick but rigorous exposition of pumps, including applications. In this book, readers find expert advice for determining TDH, NPSH, BHP and driver power requirements, discharge temperature, parallel/series operation and their impact on the operating conditions; developing system-head curves and performance considerations; pump selection for multi-product operations. The book also emphasizes the understanding of the internal workings of pumping systems and their components. Calculations for their selection, sizing and power output Case studies based on the author's 35 years of field experience Covers all types of pumps Simplified models and simulations
