Scope of Standard: Ideally, the flow of liquid into any pump should be uniform, steady, and free from swirl and entrained air. Lack of uniformity through inlet connection can result in pumps not operating to optimum design condition and at a lower hydraulic efficiency. This technically advanced standard discusses the proper design for:
