Do You Need Help Selecting The Right Pump For Your Application?

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 TemperatureSolid 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
