Pump Performance Chart

The pump performance chart is a summarized diagram containing multiple pump performance curves.
Pump Performance Chart

Pump performance chart with curves for different impeller diameters.

The performance curves differ in exact one parameter, such as

  • Impeller diameter
  • Propeller degree
  • Speed
  • Number of stages
