quick pump check up system
« on: April 16, 2019, 01:28:47 PM »
Spud.

Question and if rather not answer as it is part of livelihood I understand.
I Want to build a quick check system,setup or what ever want to call it. So I can check pump  for loss. I have 30 plus years reading water and air flows and butt load of meters,gauges and flow valves. Thinking If I set it up so I can run pump at given rpm every time and read either total head)suction and discharge) or read drop across a orifice with know drop I would know if any change in pump. Have design for both just not sure which would work best for checking pump. My thinking is checking head pressure and running calculations might be best. Thoughts.

would a jetted outlet pressure checked at exact rpm be sufficient  check.Say jetted to = system size nozzles and bypass.
