Article #57: NPSH and Developed Head
A typical pump system is shown on a sketch below. A centrifugal pump delivers 200 gpm of water from an open tank. Using information on the sketch, answer the following questions:
* What is the available NPSH?
* What pressure does a suction gage read?
* What differential head this centrifugal pump is producing? What differential pressure is it generating?
Those who e-mail us the correct answers will be acknowledged in the solution section of this problem in the next issue of PUMPS MAGAZINE.
