We have a 37 kw centrifugal pump that has the suction and discharge of 5 inches each. It is mainly used to lift the slurry (mixture of clay and water). The discharge rate at outlet is 80 cubic meters per hour. Please suggest how to calculate the discharge head and suction head?
Have an insight or suggestion?

Re: How do you calculate the discharge head and suction head?18 September 2009 at 1:29pmThe discharge head and the suction head in a pumping system has nothing to do with the pump except a knowledge of these two factors is what allows you to select the correct pump. Consequently, in your situation, you need to calculate the static head and the friction loss in the system, thus giving you the information you need.
