Formerly, it was often possible to allow liquids to flow through a plant by gravity. Nowadays, they are forced through long pipelines with many valves, through heat exchangers, filters and other equipment which often have high pressure drops. The flow rates are frequently high. Pumps are therefore used in numerous parts of a plant, and the need to have the right pump in the right place has become increasingly important.
