ABSTRACT
The article focuses on how to achieve an efficient pumping system. It mentions the important factors that needs to be achieved when designing a pumping system which include looking beyond the pumps, energy savings, pipe size and design, and radiation efficiency. Moreover, several charts and graphs are presented depicting the pump efficiency speed chart, pump-performance curve, and effect of viscosity on the performance of centrifugal pump.
