Pump Reference Guide



Technical data:



Common Pump Formulas:

• Hydraulic Horse Power (HHP) = (GPM x PSI) / 1714
• Brake Horse Power (BHP) = (GPM X PSI) / (1714 x ME)
• Pressure (PSI) = (BHP x 1714 x ME) / GPM
• GPM = (BHP x 1714 x ME) / PSI
• Rod Load = PD x PD x .7854 x PSI
• GPR = (PD x PD x .7854 x SL x NC) / 231
• GPM = GPR x RPM


GPM - Gallons Per Minute
PD - Plunger Diameter
NC - Number of Cylinders
ME - Mechanical Efficiency
SL - Stroke Length
GPR - Gallons Per Revolution

Extending Pump Life & Preventative Maintenance Program

Extending Pump Life:
Extending pump life requires careful operation by the customer. The customer should observe and utilize the following tools and practices:
• Dual inlet or Zoomie manifold
• Properly sized and maintained suction pulsation dampeners
• Properly maintained valves/seats/inserts
• Improved discharge harmonics
   (may require high pressure dampener)
• Correct piping placement, proper supercharging
• Proper sand and gel concentrations and blender operations



Maintenance:
At the very least, the following maintenance programs
should be set up, operated, and recorded for review:
• Power end lube oil and filter inspection
• Fluid end valves and inserts inspection
• Fluid end seats inspection
• Fluid end valve springs inspection
• Plunger packing inspection

Proper maintenance practices are the best way to
increase the life of your pumps and pump
components. SPM® strongly suggests that each
customer develop a maintenance program to be
followed at all times.
