Question: How can I develop a pump curve for an existing system?
Keywords: pump,curve,system,development,existing
Answer: See Figure 6-8 on page 6-8 of the Sixth Edition of "Perry's Chemical Engineers' Hanbook". It is a set of typical centrifugal pump performance curves. Basically, you need to graph the pump flow versus the pump head at various pump speeds.
