Centrifugal pumps : design & application by Val S. Lobanoff

By Val S. Lobanoff

Centrifugal Pumps: layout and alertness, moment variation specializes in the layout of chemical pumps, composite fabrics, production innovations hired in nonmetallic pump purposes, mechanical seals, and hydraulic design.

The booklet first deals details at the components of pump layout, particular pace and modeling legislation, and impeller layout. Discussions specialise in form of head skill curve, pump velocity, viscosity, particular gravity, correction for impeller trim, version legislation, and layout feedback. The booklet then takes a glance at normal pump layout, volute layout, and layout of multi-stage casing.

The manuscript examines double-suction pumps and side-suction layout, internet optimistic suction head, and vertical pumps. themes contain configurations, layout positive factors, pump vibration, impression of viscosity, suction piping, excessive pace pumps, and facet suction and suction nozzle format. The book additionally ponders on excessive pace pumps, double-case pumps, hydraulic energy restoration generators, and shaft layout and axial thrust.

The booklet is a worthy resource of knowledge for pump designers, scholars, and rotating apparatus engineers.

Example text

Pump operating at 5,000 RPM is shown in Figure 2-8. Conclusion There is no question that specific speed is the prime parameter for evaluating design of centrifugal pumps, evaluating pump selections, and predicting possible field problems. It is obvious, however, that no single parameter can relate to all aspects of final pump design. Different pump specifications covering a wide variety of applications force the designer to consider additional factors that may have an unfavorable effect on pump hydraulic performance.

Also required is experience with industrial specifications, end users, and contractors' special requirements and many years of practical experience in engineering and marketing. The variables that exist for pump requirements are so numerous that the design of the right pump in the right service is a complex project. " As an example, let us take a pump that is required to produce 500 GPM and 200-ft head, rotating at 2 or 4 pole speed. In any or all industries this hydraulic requirement exists; however, the mechanical specifications are entirely different for each and every industry.

Head of the model pump is normally the same as the prototype head. However, successful model testing has been conducted with model head as low as 80% prototype head. 2. Minimum diameter of the model impeller should be 12 in. 3. Model speed should be such that the specific speed remains the same as that of the prototype. 4. For meaningful evaluation prototype pump and model pump must be geometrically similar and flow through both kinematically similar. 5. Suction requirements of model and prototype should give the same value of sigma (see Chapter 9).
