These are installed over an underground sump. The pumping end is submerged into the liquid, and the driver is located above the ground. To handle liquids containing a large amount of solid matter, pumps with extra-wide impellers are often used (Fig. 3-12 and 3-13) to minimize the danger of clogging. Sometimes the application for which a pump must be chosen mandates certain special requirements related to the type of the sealing arrangement. In other cases, the waterways must be made of special materials to prevent the corrosive or erosive action of the pumped liqUid.

Other pumps may be too big to test on any available rig, and all tests must be performed on a scale model. In both cases, one must resort to using model laws to estimate whether the pump will perform satisfactorily under actual working conditions. An older approach to this problem was to estimate the suction performance of the pump, assuming that its suction specific speed at a constant ratio of Q/Qopt (see Fig. 5-8) was constant. However, recent findings have revealed that this is not always the case.

In Fig. 5-2, there is little doubt as to what is the minimum allowable NPSH. In this case, both the head (H) and efficiency (EFF) drop suddenly when the available NPSH is lowered to 7 ft. Therefore, 7 ft is the obvious minimum required NPSH value for this pump when it is operating at this flow rate. In Fig. 5-3, the conditions are completely different. Here, the head begins to drop at an NPSH value of 30 ft, whereas the efficiency begins to drop at 18 ft. However, as long as the available NPSH is above 9 ft, the head and efficiency continue to drop gradually.
