Topic: Re: Justifying minimum flow facilities

posed by 
The reason for using a minimum continuous flow arrangement in a pumping system is to ensure that the pump never drops below that particular flow regardless what is needed in the system. For example, if there is a variation in flows required by the system, one of which may be lower than the minimum continuous acceptable flow through the pump, a bypass rated for the minimum continuous flow required by the pump, protects the integrity and reliability of the pump. I trust this will be of help.
