Pumping Water Level from Datum (ft) : Head above Datum (ft) : Result :
• The total head is the difference between the discharge and the suction head plus the friction head and the sum is less then the shut-off head.
• Then, the suction and discharge static head are often combined.
• The difference between discharge and suction static head is the total static head.
• Head pressure is a specific type of pressure used in pump systems.
• It is a measurement of the height difference between the fluid being moved and the discharge point.
• Head is a height at which a pump can give the fluid and then it is measured in feet or meters of the output vessel of the pump.
##### Uses :
• Head is the maximum height that a pump can move fluid against gravity.
• So, The purest example of this is if you have a vertical pipe extending straight up from the discharge outlet.
• Then, A pump with 5m of head will pump fluid up the pipe 5m from the discharge outlet..
##### Formula :
• The formula for the calculation is given below.
• Field Head = (Pressure water level from datum + Head above datum).
• Beside the formula this calculator works.
##### How to Calculate ?
• First, Enter the Pressure water level from datum. Then,
• Second, Enter the Head above datum. Then,
• Click “Calculate” to get the result and then if you want to clear values Click “Reset” in addition to clear the values.
• Finally, follow these steps to get the result.
