This is more for the manufacture, but may be you can help. I need to know the pump curves for a Ingersoll Dresser vertical turbin pump.

RE: pump curves


there are a few thousand of them, could you help us a bit more?


RE: pump curves

It is a Ingersol Dresser, Vertical turbine high lift pump used in a water supply plant. It has a 350 hp motor and is rated at 210 L/s. The serial # is 1292-9017/19. I need the curve for an efficiency audit I'm doing on the plant and the manufacture does not seem to be any help. I can calculate the results but need the pump curve for the theoretical.

RE: pump curves

Not enough information yet.
Serial Number would get you the curve from IR.
Usually the turbine head has a tag on it that states the model, number of stages, and impeller trim.  That would get it.


RE: pump curves

Could you also provide the total differential head (this will also be shown on the nameplate), and the current (and voltage) that the motor is drawing.

Are you aware that Dresser is now part of FLOWSERVE.  I would be very surprised if they can not provide this information.  As a last resort you could ask for a duplicate replacement pump.  Don't feel guilty if you need to use some inventive approach to get them interested.

A lot has changed since the 90s. You don't surf the Web using dial-up anymore, so why are you still using a legacy PLM solution that's blocking your ability to innovate? To develop and launch products today, you need a flexible, cloud-based PLM, not a solution that's stuck in the past. Download Now
White Paper - Using Virtualization for IVI and AUTOSAR Consolidation on an ECU
Current approaches used to tackle the complexities of a vehicle’s electrical and electronics (E/E) architecture are both cost prohibitive and lacking in performance. Utilizing virtualization in automotive software architecture provides a better approach. This can be achieved by encapsulating different heterogeneous automotive platforms inside virtual machines running on the same hardware. Download Now
