Performance of Pumps


Liquid pipeline systems will generally require pumps to increase the pressure of the fluid to a level for overcoming pipe friction (due to pipe roughness), rise in elevation, and thermal losses that increase fluid viscosity and, hence, increase pressure loss. The performance of pumps at a pump station must meet the operating requirements of the pipeline.
