I have a question regarding reducers near the pump suction and discharge nozzles. I have a centrifugal pump for flushing water. The line size is 1 in. and the discharge nozzle size in 3/4 in. Does the reducer near the pump discharge nozzle need to be located immediate to the flange, or it can be installed after a length of approximately 1 m?
Have an insight or suggestion?

Re: Pump reducer location16 March 2007 at 1:29pmThere should not be a reducer at the discharge. The reducer should be on the suction and reducing the system pipe size down to the size of the pump flange. If the pump suction is horizontal, then the reducer should be an eccentric reducer with the flat side on top.
