2 2 Pump Head . The head H of a pump is the useful mechanical energy transmitted by the pump to the medium handled, related to the weight of the medium, expressed in m. It is independent of the density p of the medium handled, i.e. a centrifugal pump will generate the same head H for all fluids irrespective of the density p. The density p determines the pressure within the pump p=p.g.H and influences the pump power input P .

2 3 System Head . , The total head of the system H is made up of the following (see Figs. 1 and 2):


,.,, H Static head = height difference between the suction and discharge fluid levels. If the discharge pipe emerges H is referred to the centreline above the liquid level, then ,,, of the outflow section.

In practice, however, motors usually run at slightly higher speeds which - upon consent of the customer - are taken into account by the pump manufacturer at the design stage (see section 7.4). Different speeds are possible using a speed adjustment device, gearbox or belt drive.
