Monitoring and Performance Testing

Abstract

Monitoring and performance testing both have the broad objective of learning more about a pump’s operation and condition. In detail, however, their objectives are different. Monitoring is the gathering of information pertinent to (1) the safe operation of a pump and (2) establishing an optimum time for overhaul. Testing, on the other hand, is used primarily to verify the operation and performance of emergency pumps, and occasionally to determine the performance of an installed pump or the system in which it is operating. For this reason, the two topics are discussed separately.
