Art MontemayorReciprocating Pump PerformanceSeptember 02, 2009Rev: 0Pagina 3 de 5Nombre de Archivo: 23226988.xlsHoja: Bomba ReciprocaReference:API Standard 674Second Edition, June 1995Positive Displacement Pumps - ReciprocatingThe power required for driving a single-acting power pump shall be calculated as follows:where,

kW =650.6(No puede ser!)
In U.S. Customary units, the above equation transforms to the following:
hp =24.2
=
48.9
kW
(Esto tiene sentido!)Note:
The above API 674 equation for the kW requirement of a single-acting power pump is wrongThe correct equation is said to be:
kW =0.7
