Why it's crucial that your pump is correctly sized

As with many pieces of electro-mechanical equipment, when selecting a pump many people deliberately oversize it to be certain it’s large enough for its function.

However, an incorrectly-sized pump will be subjected to unnecessary wear which will eventually lead to early and expensive failure. If your pump is excessively noisy, requires frequent bearing and seal replacement and operates intermittently, it may be oversized for its purpose.

Speak to an experienced pump supplier to identify the right size – they’ll need to know the flow rate, total head, the liquid to be pumped and information on the pump’s power source. There’s more information on pump sizing here.

If you’re concerned that your pump is incorrectly sized for its use, get in touch with Gibbons and one of our expert engineers will help you get the exact equipment you need. Call 01621 868138 or email info@gibbonsgroup.co.uk and one of our friendly team will be happy to help.
