Centrifugal Pumps: Design and Application, Second Edition focuses on the design of chemical pumps, composite materials, manufacturing techniques employed in nonmetallic pump applications, mechanical seals, and hydraulic design. The publication first offers information on the elements of pump design, specific speed and modeling laws, and impeller design. Discussions focus on shape of head capacity curve, pump speed, viscosity, specific gravity, correction for impeller trim, model law, and design suggestions. The book then takes a look at general pump design, volute design, and design of multi-stage casing. The manuscript examines double-suction pumps and side-suction design, net positive suction head, and vertical pumps. Topics include configurations, design features, pump vibration, effect of viscosity, suction piping, high speed pumps, and side suction and suction nozzle layout. The publication also ponders on high speed pumps, double-case pumps, hydraulic power recovery turbines, and shaft design and axial thrust. The book is a valuable source of data for pump designers, students, and rotating equipment engineers.

A hands-on, applications-based approach to the design and analysis of commonly used centrifugal pumps Centrifugal Pump Design presents a clear, practical design procedure that is solidly based on theoretical fluid dynamics fundamentals, without requiring higher math beyond algebra. Intended for use on the factory floor, this book offers a short, easy-to-read description of the fluid mechanic phenomena that occur in pumps, including those revealed by the most recent research. The design procedure incorporates a simple computer program that allows designs to be checked immediately and corrected as needed; readers learn to calibrate the performance calculation program based on their own test data. Other important features of this book include: * Up-to-date coverage of detailed design data * Guidance on selection, troubleshooting, and modification of existing pumps * A numerical example illustrating the design of a pump as readers move through the book * Manual calculations-including worked examples-and personal computer program listings critical to pump design * Ample references to all subjects for further study This unique handbook closes the gap between research and application and puts the fundamentals of advanced fluid mechanics where they will do the most good: in the hands of engineers, teachers, and designers who create industrial pumps.

This book provides a brief but thorough account of the basic principles of good pump design. It presents the basic hydraulic equations, including cavitation, and discusses the principles that underlie the correct performance of centrifugal pumps and axial machines, giving two design examples. It then outlines analytical methods for flow calculations, including special techniques used in computer aided design. Shafts, bearings, seals and drives, design for difficult fluids, and codes and practices are treated in the last three chapters.

This book gives an unparalleled, up-to-date, in-depth treatment of all kinds of flow phenomena encountered in centrifugal pumps including the complex interactions of fluid flow with vibrations and wear of materials. The scope includes all aspects of hydraulic design, 3D-flow phenomena and partload operation, cavitation, numerical flow calculations, hydraulic forces, pressure pulsations, noise, pump vibrations (notably bearing housing vibration diagnostics and remedies), pipe vibrations, pump characteristics and pump operation, design of intake structures, the effects of highly viscous flows, pumping of gas-liquid mixtures, hydraulic transport of solids, fatigue damage to impellers or diffusers, material selection under the aspects of fatigue, corrosion, erosion-corrosion or hydro-abrasive wear, pump selection, and hydraulic quality criteria. As a novelty, the 3rd ed. brings a fully analytical design method for radial impellers, which eliminates the arbitrary choices inherent to former design procedures. The discussions of vibrations, noise, unsteady flow phenomena, stability, hydraulic excitation forces and cavitation have been significantly enhanced. To ease the use of the information, the methods and procedures for the various calculations and failure diagnostics discussed in the text are gathered in about 150 pages of tables which may be considered as almost unique in the open literature. The text focuses on practical application in the industry and is free of mathematical or theoretical ballast. In order to find viable solutions in practice, the physical mechanisms involved should be thoroughly understood. The book is focused on fostering this understanding which will benefit the pump engineer in industry as well as academia and students.

Centrifugal Pumps describes the whole range of the centrifugal pump (mixed flow and axial flow pumps are dealt with more briefly), with emphasis on the development of the boiler feed pump. Organized into 46 chapters, this book discusses the general hydrodynamic principles, performance, dimensions, type number, flow, and efficiency of centrifugal pumps. This text also explains the pumps performance; entry conditions and cavitation; speed and dimensions for a given duty; and losses. Some chapters further describe centrifugal pump mechanical design, installation, monitoring, and maintenance. The various types and applications of pumps in the light of the particular design features involved are addressed in other chapters. This book is authoritative, informative, and thought-provoking to an exceptional extent. It establishes a notable advance in the progress of the art of the designer and manufacturer of centrifugal pumps, to the material advantage of the user.

The design of hydraulic machinery in general, and of centrifugal pumps in particular, has been, and still is, essentially empirical. One reason for this is the great variety of types, sizes, and uses of centrifugal pumps, resulting in a great multiplicity of design considerations.
