Pump Curve Testing
Selected pumps at a treatment plant or pump station can be tested to determine Pump head and Pump Efficiency. This is accomplished by running the pumps under selected “load” conditions and measuring the input/output pressure, flow velocities, and power supplied to the motor. This information is used to develop Pump Curves which can be used to determine the optimal operating range of the pump. Additionally, any meter located in series with the pumps can also be checked for accuracy during this process.
