Modeling a Pump with Special Material Requirements

Using PUMP -FLO Desktop software, you can update your pump performance data to correct for impeller materials or slurries. If you are modeling a pump with special material requirements, you can apply the appropriate correction factors to your performance curves and add a note to the curve to indicate why the change was made.

To do this:

  1. Open the System Data dialogue
  2. Choose the Curve Corrections and Losses tab
  3. Enter the appropriate correction factor and notes to display on the curve
  4. Continue your selection by entering the design point and selecting a curve
  5. The curve will indicate that it has been corrected and the note you entered will be printed on your pump report.

The attached screenshot should help you find the dialogues.
