The most fundamental of all centrifugal pump documents – the performance curve – is packed with information that can be used as an aid in selection and specification of the right equipment. This webinar will teach you to read the pump curve, to know what information is there, and understand how it is formatted. Additionally, we will learn how to interpret the graphically provided information and what it means. Finally, you will learn how to use the pump curve to make decisions on the choice of pump and driver sizing, power consumption strategies, and many others.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the 19 key pieces of information found on a typical centrifugal pump curve
  • Explain various curve formats
  • Interpret the pump curve in order to explain what the information means
  • Identify the Preferred Operating Region and the Allowed Operating Region
  • Use the pump curve to make decisions on choice of pump, motor sizing, power consumption strategies, and others.
