Pressure Guages at Suction

Pressure Guages at Suction

Pressure Guages at Suction

(OP)
In closed loop chilled water pump system, my discharge side pressure gauge shows 30m (3kg/cm2) and suction side pressure gauge shows 5m (0.5 kg/cm2). To calculate the power of my pump which is 70% efficient, head should be consider only for discharge i.e. 30m OR should I consider 35m (30m discharge + 5m suction) OR 25m (30m-5m)?


RE: Pressure Guages at Suction

It's differential head that the pump is supplying to the system so in your case here it is 25m.

Remember - More details = better answers
Also: If you get a response it's polite to respond to it.

RE: Pressure Guages at Suction

Agreed, diff head would be 25m if both suction and discharge PG readings are in kg/cm2 guage.

eBook - Mastering Tolerances for Machined Parts
When making CNC machined parts, mastering tolerances can be challenging. Are general tolerances good enough? When does it make sense to call out for tighter tolerances? Do you need a better understanding of fits, datums, or GD&T? Learn about these topics and more in Xometry's new e-book. Download Now
eBook – How to Choose the Correct Corrosion Testing Method
When designing a metal component, engineers have to consider how susceptible certain alloys are to corrosion in the final product’s operating environment. In a recent study by NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers), it was estimated that the direct and indirect costs of corrosion in the United States is approximately 6.2% of the GDP. In 2016, that cost exceeded $1 trillion dollars for the first time. Download Now
