This pump analysis calculator enlightens and encourages users to better understand their pumps and select their pumps for the right reason
Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) January 18, 2007
Pumps & Systems Magazine, the magazine for pump users worldwide, announces the release of PumpCalcs, a new set of basic and expert calculators for plant, engineering, and maintenance professionals.
Users can reach PumpCalcs through a link on the home page of the P&S website, http://www.pump-zone.com. There visitors will find a variety of basic and expert calculators for applications involving centrifugal pumps; positive displacement pumps; vibration; electrical; pressure, head, and flow; pump design; and vibration. The site also features a unit converter and financial calculators to compute future value and payback time.
Robert Perez, P&S Contributing Editor and PumpCalcs.com website editor, describes one way to use the site: "Pumps & Systems' new website PumpCalcs.com offers users an Expert Calculator that takes typical pump specifications and provides key hydraulic parameters that are useful in the pump selection process. By simply inputting flow, pressures, rpm, specific gravity, number of stages, number of suction eyes, NPSHa, and desired NPSH margin, the Expert Calculator provides the specific speed (Ns) and suction specific speed (Nss) for an ideal pump."
These calculators ultimately allow users to be the Pump Designer. "This pump analysis calculator enlightens and encourages users to better understand their pumps and select their pumps for the right reason," notes Perez. "By thinking like a pump designer, they are better equipped to develop improved pump specification and talk to their pump suppliers with the goal of more accurate pump selection."
Pumps & Systems will demonstrate the features of PumpCalcs at the 23rd International Pump Users Symposium in Houston, TX on March 7-8.
Pumps & Systems is the only monthly North American trade publication that covers pumps and related operations in every issue. Its BPA-qualified circulation of 40,000 is the largest targeted pump audience in the world. http://www.pump-zone.com
