The proper operation of many economies demands the smooth functioning of its key entities. One of these is the customer unit (representing the sector which creates the demand for a commodity), and the other is the production unit (signifying the sector which creates the commodity to satisfy the demand). Discrepancies in the workings of any one sector lead to anomalies in the entire fabric of the economic system.
These disorders may include Inflation (characterized by more demand and less supply, leading to the general rise in prices), or deflation (the opposite condition, triggered by the absence of demand for the commodities). Hence, it is important to make sure that the machinery employed by the producers is properly functional and that its performance stands uncompromised.
One such category of machinery, that is essential to almost all manufacturing units, includes, pumps or pumper (as the Danish refer to it). The chief task of a pump is that it moves a certain volume of fluid or slurry from one location to another, employing some principles of fluid dynamics and powered by electric or mechanical energy.
The efficiency of a pump can be determined by calculating the ratio of the power which is expended by the machine on a volume of fluid, and the power that is supplied to drive the machine. This ratio is always less than 1, because no machine in the world is 100% efficient, as the element of frictional wear and tear is factored into its performance.
But the normal pump efficiencies range somewhere between 70%-80%. A way of testing the pumps performance would be to deduce the pressure difference between the inflow of the fluid into the pump and the outflow of the fluid and then check the power consumed by the pump.
