Dans Pressure article in PHC News

MikeyB Member Posts: 696
Have a question on Dans article on Pressure? in Junes issue of PHC News, With the Temperature Rise Formula example  where did the 20 BHP come from? is there a formula to convert the 40 Horse Power to the 20 Brake Horse Power? And does the BHP mean Boiler Horse Power or Brake Horse Power, thanks

    From the pump curve, Mikey.

    When the pump goes to no flow the motor is doing less work. 
    Retired and loving it.
