So i have to size pump, there is a tank A which sends liquid to centrifugal pump A, pump A delivered this liquid to tank B.
There is also tank C that sends liquid to pump C that delivers liquid to tank D.
Now according to new design, discharge of pump A will be connected to suction of pump C. How to find discharge pressure of pump A(which is the suction pressure of pump C)?
The way i calculated was : i calculated suction of pump A, then used pump curve, found rated head, converted to bar, and aded up to suction pressure got the discharge pressure of pump A. Then i used the discharge pressure of pump A, substracted friction loses of the pipe between pump A and C, took static elevation into account, and thus found suction pressure of pump C. Is it a right way to size pump? Could you please help? Both of them are centrifugal pumps

lorean,

Please don't duplicate the same post ! 

We are happy to help but we want you to tell us your difficulties showing your work or at least submitting minimum information , sketch for us to support . 

BTW did you talk to your supervisor ?

note : I've attached a great resource  about centrifugal pump to support your work.

 

Engineering is about hard work .

Good luck

Breizh

Hi,

Next time click on the button "more reply options"  bottom right corner then attach your documents .

BTW we got your sketch .

 

You have two pumps in serie , you need to generate the pump curve for 2 pumps  .

Make sure the pumps are compatible and won't affect their performance working in serie.

Good luck

Dear Breizh, thank you very much, you are very kind and supportive engineer :)
The pumps are existing pumps, so is the way i calculated right? Because the curve for both of them already exists.
