Attainable Pump Efficiency for Rotodynamic Pumps
Date: February 15, 2024
Time: 1pm ET
PDH Credits: 1
This webinar covers methods to determine attainable pump efficiency for rotodynamic pumps coving major factors that influence pump efficiency including pump type, design, rated flow and head, pumpage, rotational speed an other important factors. Based on the HI 20.3 Guideline, methods to calculate the generally attainable pump efficiency will be presented along with examples for different pump designs. The following rotodynamic pump types will be covered: slurry, solids-handling, paper stock, multistage between bearing, ASME/API, vertically suspended, and double suction. .
- Why pump type and design influences pump efficiency
- How to calculate specific speed
- How specific speed affects optimum efficiency
- Factors that impact efficiency such as surface roughness and impeller trimming
- Methodology for predicting generally attainable efficiency levels for various pump types

The acceptance of continuing education as it applies to fulfillment of the state licensing requirements for professional designations is at the pleasure of the individual state licensing boards. It is the responsibility of the individual participants to be knowledgeable about their state requirements.
Licensed Professional Engineers
Continuing professional development is a vital component to the engineering licensure process. Most state licensing boards require continuing professional development as a condition for licensure and renewal of the license to practice engineering. Pre-approval of training providers and courses are not required by most state licensing boards, except for the following:
Florida Board of Professional Engineers
Pump Systems Matter is a board-approved continuing education provider for the Florida Board of Professional Engineers: License # CEA361.
North Carolina Board of Examiners for Engineers and Surveyors
Pump Systems Matter is an approved continuing professional competency sponsor for the North Carolina Board of Examiners for Engineers and Surveyors: Sponsor # S-0523.
New York State Board for Engineering, Land Surveying, and Geology
Pump Systems Matter is approved as a sponsor of continuing education for professional engineers in New York State: NYS Sponsor # 241.
