Testing for sewage and drinking water pumps

Scope for the Test Facility

 There are two entirely separate test beds; one to test sewage (duty water) and effluent pumps and one to test drinking water pumps (clean water).


Each test bed is equipped with a below-floor tank (3m deep_ and an above-ground tank to allow the testing of most surface mounted and submersible pumps.


Both facilities are equipped to test pumps ranging from domestic pumps with flows of 1m3/hr to industrial pumps with flows of up to 150m3/hr.


Testing to industry standards

Every test is documented with a test report which a performance curve showing flow versus head.  Motor performance and effieciency can be monitored as an optional extra.


Pump testing is generally carried out in accordance with BSEN 9906:2000 depending upon the customers’ requirements.
