PUMPCALC by SYSTEK is a Centrifugal Pump Analysis program. It can be used to predict the performance of one or more centrifugal pumps, at various impeller sizes, speeds and series or parallel configurations.
The main features of PUMPCALC are:
•  Single pump performance - Impeller size and speed changes.
•  Multiple Pump Performance - Series and Parallel Configurations.
•  Viscosity Corrected Pump Performance - Hydraulic Institute method.
•  Pump Head Curve versus Pipe System Head Curve - Operating point.
•  Required brake power for the particular operating conditions (BHP or kW).

Expertise Required: 

Basic understanding of centrifugal pump and pipeline related terminology including flow, viscosity, pressure and pump / system head.

Audience: 

Assessors of centrifugal pumps seeking estimated performance including required electrical motor size.

Input: 

Input consists of sets of values of Flow rate (or capacity), Head and Efficiency for a particular pump, for a specific impeller size and speed.  Optional input of piping and valves and fittings.

Output: 

Screen and printer graphic plots and text based reports.

Strengths: 

Can enter single design point data for a pump, in order to create a typical pump curve around the best efficiency point (BEP).
