The present publication book contains very useful information that is
necessary to select the proper pump for a particular application, choose
vendors, and create the necessary documentation. There are so many
books dealing with the positive displacement and centrifugal pumps. Most
of these books cover all aspects of pump application and design in
great detail. The authors of this book has no intention to compete in
any way with the authors of above notes books; instead, the aim is to to
supply a comprehensive and compact guide that would contain all the
information that pump users or application engineers need in one simple
reference book. The "Practical Introduction to Pumping Technology"
assumes that the reader has some general knowledge of hydraulics, pumps,
and pumping systems.
