• ### Hydronic Pump Piping and Trim: Pump Suction

2020-5-14 · SE, in its simplest definition, is the unit-less mathematical product of the nominal inside diameter of the pump suction nozzle (D), multiplied by the pump speed (N), multiplied by the suction specific speed (Nss). Note: The speed is revolutions per minute (rpm) and the diameter is inches. Formula 1: Suction Energy = D x N x Nss

• ### What Is Suction Energy? | Pumps & Systems

2018-3-16 · The pump suction energy level increases when you have large flow capacities and use single suction pumps instead of double suction pumps. One area that may be surprising is the pump suction energy level increases as the NPSH required decreases. When using the pump suction energy level calculations, the NPSHr is the denominator of the formula.
