Pumping Systems

Opportunities Improving Pumping Systems

Pumping systems are generally oversized; valves strangled or operate away from its Best Efficiency Point (BEP) and non-ideal suction conditions. Our approach is to do a complete analysis of your pumping system in order to save money.


Characteristics of Pumping Systems

Centrifugal pumps have the following benefits when operating at its Best Efficiency Point (BEP)

  • Smooth operation
  • Increased bearing life
  • Increased mechanical seals lifespan
  • Reduced risk of cavitation
  • Minimum vibration
  • Noise Reduction.


The main symptoms of pumping systems under non-optimal conditions are:

  • Existence of restricted valve
  • Existence of bypass flow
  • Oversized pumps
  • Pumps operating away of its BEP
  • Changes in the conditions of the initial pumping system
  • Large number of items
  • Noise presence due to cavitation
  • Pumping systems with different pump models.
