What is specific speed of a pump?

The specific speed of a pump is defined as the speed of a geometrically similar pump which would deliver unit quantity (one cubic meter of liquid per second) against a unit head(one meter). It is denoted by Ns. The specific speed is a characteristic of pumps which can be used as a basis for comparing the performance of different pumps.

How to Calculate Head of a pump given specific speed?

Head of a pump given specific speed calculator uses Head=(Speed*sqrt(Discharge)/Specific speed of a pump)^(4/3) to calculate the Head, The Head of a pump given specific speed formula is defined as the ratio of product of speed and square root of discharge to the specific speed of pump whole raised to the power of 4/3. Head and is denoted by H symbol.

How to calculate Head of a pump given specific speed using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Head of a pump given specific speed, enter Speed (N), Discharge (Q) and Specific speed of a pump (Ns) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Head of a pump given specific speed calculation can be explained with given input values -> 1 = (10.4719755119667*sqrt(1)/10.4719755119667)^(4/3).

FAQ

What is Head of a pump given specific speed?
The Head of a pump given specific speed formula is defined as the ratio of product of speed and square root of discharge to the specific speed of pump whole raised to the power of 4/3 and is represented as H=(N*sqrt(Q)/Ns)^(4/3) or Head=(Speed*sqrt(Discharge)/Specific speed of a pump)^(4/3). Speed of a machine/body in rpm, Discharge is the rate of flow of a liquid and Specific speed of a pump is the speed of machines discharging 1m3/sec under 1m head.
How to calculate Head of a pump given specific speed?
