Publisher: American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)
Number of Pages:77
:Provides standard directions for conducting and reporting performance tests of centrifugal pumps
, including those of the mixed flow and axial flow types, hereinafter inclusively covered by the term "pumps." The objective of this Code is to establish rules for conducting tests of pumps to determine, under specified conditions, the following characteristics- (a) total head produced by the pump, (b) pump capacity (rate of flow through the pump), (c) power input to the pump, (d) efficiency, (e) net positive suction head requirements of the pump. Provides nonmandatory appendices which provide additional guidance related to the application of this Code. Applicable to the testing of pumps utilizing liquids or mixtures of miscible liquids which have Newtonian viscosity characteristics.
