Evaluation of PumpLinx® by HMS Group Published in World Pumps.

HMS Group Russia conducted an evaluation of PumpLinx in comparison with test data for several of their centrifugal and mixed-flow pumps. Selected results are presented in the article “Cost cutting with pump performance prediction”, published in the July/August 2013 edition of World Pumps . A copy of the article is available via the World Pumps’ download site.

Based on the evaluation, HMS had the following testimonial for PumpLinx,

“PumpLinx for me has surpassed all expectations: 3D model preparation – 2 hours maximum, 1 hour on average. No problems with mesh creation – always created and there are no errors in the calculations because of the quality of the grid. Calculation of the first characteristic point is no more than 10-30 minutes, which is 10-30 times faster than our main program. Accuracy of the calculation for the pressure and for the efficiency in the range of 1% to 3% max (in the operating range of feeds, and for one pump and throughout the feature). To sum up the total: a great program for the engineer;quick and easy; Overall evaluation of 9 out of 10 (with 10 being a perfect virtual [Score])”
