It's an often neglected component of an efficient pump system, but the suction pipe is incredibly important in ensuring that a product is transported correctly. Whether it's forgetting to include the suction pipe in your friction loss calculations, or simply ignoring the dangers of a lengthy or undersized suction pipe, too many underestimate the positive and negative effects this can have.
How the Suction Line Affects Friction LossThe suction line of your pump system is simple piping which transports your fluid material from its source to the pump itself. When you are planning out your system, you have to take friction loss into account. It isn't enough to just calculate the power required to move a fluid from point A to point B, you must also take into consideration the resistance caused by friction. But in order for these calculations to be accurate you must take the suction line into account, which is something which can be easily forgotten. This could potentially mean that you end up purchasing the wrong equipment which isn't up to the task, only to discover this when it's too late, and you have to buy a new pump which is more capable.
The suction line must be designed before you buy a pump in order to make sure you get the correct equipment.
Why a Shorter Suction Line is Better
When pumping materials, your number one goal should be efficiency: how do you transport a desired volume of fluid over a given time from one point to another, using as little energy as possible. A shorter suction line is a key part of achieving this.
The advantage of a short suction line includes:
