Fast volumetric flow establishment in liquid pump

Hi,

Im new to this forum and i am currently stuck up in design decisions, where i have to choose between, quick flow rate and high flow rate for size of pump. In this case i am required to establish the flow of fluid approximately similar to water +4 deg cel. Which pump system or type is suitable for this operation.


Regards.

It depends on your application,
why are you pumping this fluid?
What do you want to do with it after pumping?
a high flow speed pump will apply more turbulence & stress to the liquid.
Might this be a problem?
a high flow rate (slow flow speed) will require larger pipes to get the same overall flow rate as a high flow speed pump.

Yes as flow rate is flow speed with cross area of pipe, but i will lay down the application, it is, i want to choose the most suitable pump for pumping 10+ Lpm with self priming capability and withstanding back pressure of 8 bars, can you suggest the best possible type of pump for this operation and if not how to design and what to calculate.
