Calculating what you needThe calculation of flow, pressure and load profile is important toidentify the correct pump system for your installation. Below a fewexamples of how to calculate the right flow and examples of therelated load profile.For more specific calculations to suit your installation, contact us– we will be happy to be of assistance.Calculation of max. flow for system design ExampleUnits 1 pupil 700Total consumption per bed 8 m3/year 5,600 m3/yearConsumption period 200 day/year (5,600/200)Average consumption per day 0.04m328.0 m3Factor for maximum consumption 1.3 (28 x 1.3)Maximum consumption per day 0.065 m336.4 m3Factor for peak flow per hour 2.5 (36.4 x 2.6)/24Dimensioning flow per hour/bed 0.007 m3/h 3.8 m3/h� � � �� ���� �������������Time (h)Flowin %Load profileCalculation of max. flow for system design ExampleUnits 1 residence 65Total consumption per bed 183 m3/year 11,895 m3/yearConsumption period 365 day/year (11,895/365)Average consumption per day 0.5 m332.6 m3Factor for maximum consumption 1.3 (32.6 x 1.3)Maximum consumption per day 0.65 m342.4 m3Factor for peak flow per hour 1.7 (42.4 x 1.7)/24Dimensioning flow per hour/bed 0.046 m3/h 3 m3/h� � � �� ���� �������������Time (h)Flowin %Load profileCalculation of max. flow for system design ExampleUnits 1 bed 600Total consumption per bed 300 m3/year 180,000 m3/yearConsumption period 365 day/year (180,000/365)Average consumption per day 0.8 m3493.2 m3Factor for maximum consumption 1.2 (493.2 x 1.2)Maximum consumption per day 0.96 m3591.8 m3Factor for peak flow per hour 3.0 (591.8 x 3)/24Dimensioning flow per hour/bed 0.12 m3/h 73.9 m3/h� � � �� ���� �������������Time (h)Flowin %Load profileInclude hot water supply in each zoneIf the pressure boosting system is divided into zones,we always recommend that you include a hot-waterproduction unit in each zone. That way, you avoidlarge differences in pressure between the hot andcold water.Where should I place non-return valves?In systems exposed to inlet pressure – i.e. systemsthat are connected directly to the water supply – werecommend that you place the non-return valves af-ter the pumps. This prevents the pressure inside thepump from becoming too low, so you avoid problemswith air being sucked through the shaft seal.If your system is subjected to suction pressure – i.e. ifit is connected to a break tank – you should place thenon-return valves before the pumps.Always use dry-running protection!We always recommend that you add dry-runningprotection to your pressure boosting system. Exactlyhow you do this depends on the type of system. Ifyour booster system is connected directly to thewater supply, you should use a pressure sensor tomonitor that there is sufficient pressure to thepump. If your system uses a break tank, use a levelsensor in the tank instead.The brains behind the boosting:Multi Pump ControlGrundfos has developed the perfect brains for usewith CR-based Hydro booster systems. The MultiPump Control maintains its outstanding user-friendliness right from the initial installation throughto everyday operation.The large display is easy to navigate, regardless ofwhether you are using the installation wizard orcarrying out day-to-day monitoring. The Ethernetconnection option even brings the Hydro MPC inter-face to your own computer so that matter where youare, you will always be in control.HospitalApartment blocksSchoolA few tips when designing pressure boostingMeeting your needsWater supply solutions can be made in several different ways, depending upon individual systemrequirements.
