Subject: AODD Catalog Issues When Calculating Head and Pressure

Program affected: PUMP-FLO

Approved by: SP

Background

In certain situations when using PUMP-FLO desktop with AODD pump catalogs, PUMP-FLO is returning incorrect values for head or pressure depending on the units selected and fluid table used.This is occurring because of compatibility issues with the fluid table and PUMP-FLO.

Condition

This is only an issue for people who have downloaded the AODD catalogs and are using them with PUMP-FLO desktop. PUMP-FLO.com and direct website users do not encounter this problem.

Workaround

The following AODD catalogs have been removed from the PUMP-FLO pump catalog downloads:

IR ARO, Price AOD, Blagdon, and Yamada

If users have downloaded any of these catalogs they should discontinue using them with PUMP-FLO desktop.These catalogs can still be accessed and used from PUMP-FLO.com or the manufacturers' websites.Here are links to their direct sites:

Ingersoll Rand

Price Pump

Blagdon Pump

Yamada

Wilden
