We’ll discuss the necessary criteria engineers need to consider to properly design and select a domestic water pressure booster system for different applications. The talk will focus on the considerations that need to be taken by a design engineer to ensure the right equipment is selected for a range of different applications.
The discussion begins with a focus on pressure booster pump sizing that will touch on Hunter’s Curve and pump pressure loss calculations. From there, the talk will move on to the main components of a typical pressure booster system with an emphasis on the booster control panel and the system hydro-pneumatic tank. Constant speed booster systems will be compared to variable speed systems both in terms of design and operating cost advantages.
