PUMP SELECTION CRITERIA
1. PUMP CURVE Pump selection is made through the curves. Heads read on the curves are for single stage. When less than five stages are used to achieve your selection, apply the required efficiency deduction points identified on the curve data sheet. Select the motor size by using the HP formula: HP= GPM x FT of Head x SG 3960 x EFF SG : water = 1.0 sea water = 1.03

2. SHAFT SIZING Determine shaft size required according to the pump total down thrust. As a rule of thumb, if your pump is less than 20ft long and your total head is less than 200ft, your Thrust will rarely go above 5000lbs. If you have extreme condition (long pump, high head, many impellers) it is recommended to do the following calculation: (Impeller weight x Number of Stages) + Shaft Weight + (K Factor x Feet of Head) = TOTAL THRUST Then verify table of LINESHAFT AND BOWL SHAFT HP RATING : Example: For a Total Down Thrust is 1500 lbs and your pump requires a 75HP motor at 1760 RPM you should use at least a 1-1/4˝ shaft size. If the HP limit is close to your required HP, use the next shaft size. SHAFT DIA. SPEED RPM 1170 1760 3520 1170 1760 3520 TOTAL THRUST (LBS) 2000 45 67 134 87 131 262

3000 44 66 132 86 130 260

3. COLUMN SIZING Standard column size indicated on the curve data sheet should be used and verified against the TURBINE FRICTION LOSS TABLE. It is recommended not to exceed 5 feet of friction loss per 100 feet of column for your design flow. If the friction loss value is above 5 feet per 100 feet, than use next column size.

1996 SUPERSEDES: New DATE: PUMP PRICING Pricing and selection can be made by using the pricing forms that are included at the end of this section. Different Bowl material may affect the pump efficiency or number of stages required. use adder for impeller only. keyed impellers should be used.Complete Bowl Assembly Multiplier Table. Before quoting with the following. Usually clean water applications. PUMP BOWLS 1. you the other form needs to be used. COLUMN ASSEMBLIES Column assemblies include the column pipe (threaded or flanged). 3. line shaft and sleeves.1 Product lubricated.SHORT COUPLED PUMP section. rubber (for abrasive) or rubber and bronze • Standard is bronze.2 Other Constructions Above 140°F operating conditions. STRAINER Strainer needs to be added.1 Standard Bowl assemblies consist of: Pump bowl (casing) with bronze impeller Bowl bearing either bronze (for clean water). The space available for taking the pump apart should be considered before pricing 10ft column pieces. Wear rings with different material offering can be added as well as special bowl bolting material. Cone strainer are usually used for deep well applications (above 200ft deep). Galvanized basket clip-on strainer is the most common. Page 2 of 5 . STANDARD PUMP CONSTRUCTION should be used if your pump requirements corresponds to the description in the FACTORY ASSEMBLED . Rubber or bronze/rubber are available at no extra cost • Rubber bearing temperature limit is 140°F Suction case fitted with grease lubricated bearing Discharge case Bowl shaft is 416SS standard 1. Otherwise.18 Date: April 1. contact factory: • Aluminum or any bronze alloy • Steel or any steel alloy • Ni-Resit • Non Enameled casing required on some special construction Multiply the complete bowl price by the modification factor. It uses the pumped fluid for bearing lubrication. 3. Otherwise if only impeller material needs to be changed. Use STANDARD PUMP CONSTRUCTION sheet or MODIFIED VERTICAL TURBINE CONSTRUCTION.File N°: 51. 2. PUMP COMPONENTS AND OPTIONS 1. If other than standard material needs to be used for the entire bowl assembly. Most commonly used type of lubrication. use ALTERNATE CONSTRUCTION .
