The Importance of Impeller Design and Best Efficiency Point
If you work with electric motors and pumps, you’ll eventually encounter a pump curve and one of its key parameters — best efficiency point (BEP). The BEP is the point on the curve where the pump operates most efficiently. Unique to each pump, the BEP is a product of both impeller design and several related pump curve parameters.
This article covers:
- Pump efficiency
- Effect of flow rate
- Effect of impeller design on BEP
