Steel & O’Brien is always at your service!
When properly sizing a pump, we need to know:
• Liquid Data
|⇒ Product||⇒ Specific Gravity|
• Operating Conditions
|⇒||Capacity (GPM)||⇒||Discharge Pressure (PSI)||⇒||Head Pressure (TDH)|
|⇒||Inlet Pressure (PSI) (Where NPSHₐ ≥ NPSHᵣ)||⇒||Viscosity (cP) – Ambient Temperature, Process Temperature||⇒||Solid Size & Content|
Horizontal and vertical runs are important factors when determining head. Friction loss is critical to determining head pressure. To properly size a pump, the size and type of all fittings, valves and equipment must be taken into consideration.
• Suction Line
• Discharge Line

|⇒ Vertical Drop____________||⇒ Vertical Rise____________|
|⇒ Total Elbows____________||⇒ Horizontal Run__________|
|⇒ Total Tees______________||⇒ Total Elbows____________|
|⇒ Total Valves_____________||⇒ Total Tees______________|
|⇒ Total Valves_____________|
• Discharge Valve(s) and/or Equipment
