The maximum pump efficiency is obtained in the specific speed range of 200 capacity pumps may have a specific speed of 15,000 or larger.

Pumps for high head low capacity occupy the range 500 to 1000. While low h

Efficiencies start dropping drastically at specific speeds below 1000. Also sm exhibit lower efficiencies than higher capacities at all specific speeds.

Suction Specific speed and NPSH


Experience has shown that 9000 is a reasonable value of suction specific speed. Pumps with a minimum suction specific speed of 9000 are readily available, and are not normally subject to severe operating restrictions, unless the pump speed pushes the pump into high or very high suction energy.
