Seawater Lift Pump Sizing

1. Bowl head calculation

1) Suction lift :
Low Sea Level from chart datum = 9.05 m
Deck to chart datum = 19.50 m
Discharge centreline to cellar deck = 0.35 m

2) Internal friction loss :


Column friction loss = 0.85 m
Discharge friction loss = 0.43 m

3) Velocity head loss :


V2
---- = 0.33 m
2g

4) Discharge pressure at pump discharge flange = 11.7 kg/cm2 A required.

( 11.7 - 1 ) x 10
Discharge head = ---------------------- = 103.89 m
1.03 SG

Therefore, total bowl head = 1) + 2) + 3) + 4) = 134.4 m bowl head

Peerless will select the pump with 135 m bowl head to give contingency.

2. Motor HP selection calculation

Please refer to pump performance curve newly selected as per above bowl head.

Example : 570 m3/hr capacity pump

1) Pump rated BHP = 297.07 KW

2) Pump maximum BHP = 302.95KW

3) API 610 requirement = Motor shall have 10% spare HP over pump rated BHP.

4) Specification requirement = Motor HP shall cover the HP curve for entire range.

5) Thus, per API 610 : 302.95 KW x 110% = 333.25 KW


This will not exceed the specification requirement. Thus, motor HP shall be selected as 340
kW.
