How to select circumferential piston pumps
There are several areas of consideration when it comes to selecting the correct ECP pump.
Under sizing a pump and using a faster running speed will often lead to the generation of heat in the pump chamber that subsequently damages the pumped fluid,
The fluid characteristics that need to be considered for many ECP applications are greater than many pump duties and not only cover the normal parameters such as viscosity and temperature, but also the nature of any solids, it’s susceptibility to heat damage and it’s abrasiveness.
When it comes to the wider process the accuracy of the flow rate can be more critical than normal and the details of the suction conditions more important if the duty involves a viscous fluid.
