Hot Water Pump Test


Functional Testing Guide Heating Hot Water System Pump Test to Assess the Impact of Discharge Throttling
Purpose: The purpose of this test is to document the NYMEX hot water system pump and assess the impact of the currently throttled valves. The test will establish the system curve for the pumping system. This will allow the match between the pump capacity with discharge valve fully open to be assessed against the actual head required to deliver design flow. It will also allow the energy implications of the throttled discharge valve to be assessed.

Instructions: Initial each step if the item is completed satisfactorily or the test item associated the step met the test requirements and passed. If the item is not satisfactory or step fails, record an "F" in the appropriate box instead of your initials. Document reason for failing in the comments section as a numbered note and include the note next to the F on the test form. If the test step has data associated with it, it on the test form in addition to your initials and the date and time.

Hot Water Pump Test


Equipment Required: 1. Digital pressure gauge or a reasonably accurate gauge on the pump.

Functional Testing Guide

2 An amprobe or kW meter (desirable but not manditory) Acceptance Criteria: The test is being run for the purpose of gathering data to assess pump performance, thus there is no acceptance criteria.

Precations: 1. 2. Exercise care when changing operating modes. Verify that all components between the pump discharge and the discharge are rated for the peak pressure on the pump curve with the largest impeller installed prior to performing a shut off test. 3. 4. Avoid sudden flow changes to minimize the potential for water hammer. Exercise proper precaution while working around live wiring and terminals to amp readings. 5. Exercise proper precaution while working around the rotating parts of the References: 1. 2. 3. 4. Pump curves for the pumps to be tested. A system diagram (to be developed prior to testing).

Prerequisites: 1. Gauges and valves are in place at the pump gauge taps. It is important that the gauges are arranged to measure pressure at the same location used by the manufacturer to develop the pump data. 2. 3. 4. The test will not interfere with building The system can be operated. The system can be operated.

2. With one pump running (normal operating mode) document the following. Note the engineering associated with the reading; i.e. psi or ft.w.c. Pump that is under test Pressure ahead of the strainer Pump suction pressure Strainer pressure drop (the difference between the two reading just taken) 3. If the pressure drop through the strainer exceeds 3 psi/7 ft.w.c. suspend the test and inspect and the strainer. After the strainer is clean, proceed with the following. Pump discharge pressure Pump amps (all phases) Pump volts (all phases) Pump kW Pump kW 4. 5. 6. Document the discharge valve position so it can returned to the "as found" condition after the Fully open the discharge service valve. Document the following Pump suction pressure Pump discharge pressure Pump amps (all phases) Pump volts (all phases) Pump kW 7. Perform a shut off test to verify the pump size by briefly closing the discharge valve and and documenting the pump differential pressures. Proceed as follows: Briefly close the discharge valve and document: Pump suction pressure Pump discharge pressure Return discharge valve to original position.

8. 9. 10. 11. If the second pump can be operated, proceed as follows.

Functional Testing Guide

Document the discharge valve position so it can returned to the "as found" condition after the Fully open the discharge service valve. Start the second pump and document the Pump suction pressure Pump discharge pressure Pump amps (all phases) Pump volts (all phases) Pump kW

12.

Document the following on the first pump. Pump suction pressure Pump discharge pressure Pump amps (all phases) Pump volts (all phases) Pump kW

13. 14.

Shut down the first pump. Document the following on the second pump. Pump suction pressure Pump discharge pressure Pump amps (all phases) Pump volts (all phases) Pump kW

15.

Perform a shut off test to verify the pump size for the second pump in a manner similar to was used for the first pump. Proceed as follows: Document discharge valve position Start the second pump to prevent a chiller safety shut down due to loss of flow. Briefly close the discharge valve and document: Pump suction pressure Pump discharge pressure Return discharge valve to original position.

Follow up and Return to Normal: 1. 2. Remove all test equipment.

Functional Testing Guide

Return the system to the state it was operating in at the start of the test or as requested by the operating staff.

3. 4.

Plot test results on the pump curves to determine flow rates in all operating modes. Verify the impeller size for the pump that was tested based on the shut of test and document. Impeller size for the pump tested

5.

Assess the impact of the throttled discharge valve and develop recommendations.
