Discharge of a reciprocating pump
The discharge of a reciprocating pump is given by the following formula
Q_{t} = A L N
where Q_{t} is the theoretical discharge in m^{3}
A is the Area of the piston in m^{2}
L is the length of the stroke in m
N is the number of the revolutions of the crank per second (rps)
Coefficient of Discharge
The Coefficient of Discharge of a reciprocating pump is the ratio of the actual discharge to the theoretical discharge.
C_{d} = Q_{a} / Q_{t}
Where
C_{d} is the Coefficient of Discharge
Q_{a} is the actual discharge in m^{3}
Q_{t} is the theoretical discharge in m^{3}
Slip in a Reciprocating pumps
Slip in a Reciprocating pump is the difference between the theoretical discharge and the actual discharge.
Slip = Q_{t } Q_{a}
