The specifications of industrial pumps

Industrial pump capacity (P)

Power (P) represents the energy consumption of industrial pumps.

The units for the power measure: W, kW, HP.

Liquid flow (Q)

Liquid flow is the volume of fluid a pump has over a given period of time. The measurement unit of flow is expressed in liters / min (l / p) or m3 / h .

It is important that the pump flow is inversely proportional to the head pump (H):

The lower the head, the higher the fluid flow in the pump (more & fast).

Conversely, the higher the head, the lower the fluid flow in the pump.

Depending on the usage needs, we will choose the right pump with the right flow.

Head (H)

The pump head is a measure of the power of the pump and calculates the formula:

Head H = Depth of suction + Height of push.

Temperature (T)

Temperature of the fluid and surrounding environment. The main unit of measure is degrees Celsius.

Play an important role in choosing the right pump for the business.

If the fluid and the outside environment have high temperature, we will choose adaptable pump characteristics such as:

  • Heat resistant material
  • Diesel or Electric engine
