The inormation in this book should be used as astarting point onl, not or fnal calculations. While Gorman-Ruppprovides the inormation in this book as a courtes, it should benoted that it is gathered rom man sources and Gorman-Rupptakes no responsibilit or the accurac o the inormationcontained herein. It is the responsibilit o each individual usingthis inormation to check its accurac.

From this area the sie pipe required ma beselected rom the table o standard pipe dimensions.Atmospheric pressure at sea level is 14.7 pounds persquare inch. This pressure with a perect vacuumwill maintain a column o mercur 29.9 inches or acolumn o water 33.9 eet high. This is the theoreticaldistance that water ma be drawn b suction. Inpractice, however, pumps should not have a totaldnamic suction lit greater than 25 eet.
Static head is the vertical distance between the reelevel o the source o suppl and the point o reedischarge, or to the level o the ree surace o thedischarged liquid.

Total dnamic head is the vertical distance betweensource o suppl and point o discharge when pumpingat required capacit, plus velocit head, riction,entrance and eit losses.Total dnamic head, as determined on test whereSuction lit eists, is the reading o the mercur columnconnected to the suction nole o the pump, plus thereading o a pressure gauge connected to dischargenole o pump, plus vertical distance between pointo attachment o mercur column and center o gauge,plus ecess, i an, o velocit head o discharge overvelocit head o suction, as measured at points wherethe instruments are attached, plus head o waterresting on mercur column, i an.Total dnamic head, as determined on tests wheresuction head eists, is the reading o the gaugeattached to the discharge nole o pump, minus thereading o gauge connected to the suction nole opump, plus or minus vertical distance between centerso gauges (depending upon whether suction gauge isbelow or above discharge gauge), plus ecess, i an,o the velocit head o discharge over velocit heado suction as measured at points where instrumentsare attached.Total dnamic discharge head is the total dnamichead minus dnamic suction lit, or plus dnamicsuction head.
