The consumption profile shows the relationship between the time of the day and the water flow rate. This is relevant in connection to water boosting systems.
The consumption profile is the relationship between the time of the day and the water flow rate.
Consumption profiles vary from each other depending on the application and the installation types.
Example: In a hotel, the water demand will fluctuate a lot during the day. Demand is highest in the morning, as most of the guests shower, and all activities including cleaning, cooking and washing starts up.
Demand peaks again around dinnertime. A typical consumption profile for the hotel example is shown in the illustration.
The consumption profile is important information in the selection process. It greatly influences the choice of booster system type, and the number of pumps required.
A load profile can be made based on this information. From this, we can see how many hours per day a certain flow is required.
