Note 2: Efficiency curves demonstrate possible positions (depending on pump internals) of operating point (a) if 50 gpm is BEP (assumed here), and (b) and (c) are for BEP to the left of 50 gpm, or to the right of it. FIGURE 20 Operating point — intersection of pump and system curves. 014. 014Q2, which can be re-plotted now more accurately in Figure 20. PERFORMANCE CURVES Mathematically, if the discharge valve is throttled, its loss coefficient “k” changes (higher for a more closed valve). Inside the pump, however, there is one particular flow (BEP), where the hydraulic losses are minimal.

Since the parts are rubbing under load, they will wear. Limits have been established that attempt to keep this wear down to acceptable levels. The limits are based on the amount of heat that can be removed from the bearing surfaces actually in contact, and on surface chemistry interactions between the shaft, bearing, and liquid. Boundary lubrication is often called “PV-lubrication” because the bearing load per unit area (P) and the relative velocity between the parts (V) are the factors. Typically, the following values are used to estimate load capabilities of various bearing materials: ©1999 CRC Press LLC Material carbon bronze iron plastics PV-value (psi × ft/min) 120,000 60,000 30,000 3,000 Hydrodynamic operation is different from boundary lubrication in that the bearing material is not important, and the viscosity instead of the chemistry of the liquid is important.

A supplier of chemicals used by the processing plant has advised that the raw chemicals can be supplied in truck-mounted containers and pumped out directly from the trucks, without unloading of the containers to the ground, thereby saving time and money. As a result, a suction level is now higher, and, since nothing different was done on the discharge side, the net static level (discharge level minus suction level) has decreased from the original 60 ft to 20 ft. All other variables, including the valve setting, remain the same.
