DATA : Pump model 15SV17F150T


No. of pumps 1 ( Running)
Flow rate 18 m3/h Total flow : 18 m3/h
Water temp. 40 deg.C
Required N.P.S.H. 1.5 m ( at duty poin 18 m3/h )

Available N.P.S.H. = Pb x 10.2.- Hg - Hf - Hv - Hs > Required N.P.S.H. (Net Positiv Suction Head )
Where : + 10.20 m Pb Atmospheric Pressure = 1 bar x 10.2 m
- 0.30 m Hg Total Static Head ( = water level - pump level )
- 7.73 m Hf total friction loss ( See above table )
- 0.73 m Hv Vapor Pressure at Ambient Temperature = 40 deg.C ( See attached table )
- 0.50 m Hs Safety margin
Available N.P.S.H.= 0.94 m

So, Required N.P.S.H. = 1.5 m ( Required NPSH of the pump at duty point ) > 0.94 m Result = not ok
