Liquid Pump Selection Flowchart


Based on your pumping requirements, follow the arrows to find the best pump for your application. See the Guide to Liquid Pumps (facing page) for corresponding page numbers. This flowchart is intended as a rough guidelinefactors such as fluid viscosity, temperature, installation requirements, and chemical compatibility should also be considered (see pages 2194-2203).
