Integration of Rotary Positive Displacement Pumps into a Process
This Engineering Design Guide deals with:
(a) The specification of the pump duty for enquiries to be sent to pump vendors,
(b) The estimation of the characteristics and requirements of the pumps in order to provide preliminary information for design work by others.
It applies to pumps in Group 2 and 3 as defined in GBHE-EDS-MAC-21 Series, and is also an essential preliminary step for a pump in Group 1 whose final duty is negotiated with the chosen pump supplier.
It may be used for general-purpose pumps in Group 4; their duties when used in a support role are often inadequately defined, whereupon such pumps can be specified by reference to the manufacturer's data for a pump satisfactorily fulfilling the same process need.
