Bypass Pumping System

Aug 01, 2011

Many bypasses are similar in appearance and name, but it’s their subtle differences that require close attention to fully understand component performance parameters. To determine the right pump, we first need to understand many different aspects of the physical conditions of the application – Flow, Lift/Pump Strength, and Distance.

FLOW – is the quantity of liquid being discharged over time calculated in gallons per minute or litres per second. Flow determines the line size of the piping or hose.

LIFT – the total lift combines the suction and discharge lift. Lift determines the pump strength.

DISTANCE – the length of the hose/pipe to discharge. Distance determines if the line size should be up-sized to reduce friction loss.
