Any limit for flow rate?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
First thing I want to clear is i will be running 2x Ek D5 pumps in seriel the specs are for each pump as follows:

Mximum pressure head: up to 3.9m
Maximum flow: up to 1500L/h.


Know what I wanted to know is there a limit on flow rate? what i mean is there a certain maximum where after this it will not matter if the flow rate number is any higher? If there is no max then i guess having the fastest flow rate would be better? maybe some temp drop since water would be moving fast?

No, there's no limit on flow rate, it's just that over about 1.5 GPM there's not much improvement in temps with higher flow rates. Reading test results for the rad(s) and block(s) you will actually be using will show you exactly where that starts to happen for them.
