A motor is used to drive a pump having an efficiency of 85% and 70% respectively. the enthalpy at the entrance is 765 kJ/kg. If water level is 25 ft above the pump. What is the combined efficiency of pump and motor? Solution: ( ) 7. A submersible pump delivers 350 gpm of water to a height of 50 ft from the ground.

Each impeller develops a head of 38 ft. What is the power output of driving motor if pump efficiency is 65%? .Solve for water power.00112 m 3/kg at a head of 750 m. Solution: ( ) ( ) ( ) Solve for number of stages: 10. Determine the number of stages needed for a centrifugal pump if it is used to deliver 400 gpm of water and pump power of 15 Hp. A boiler feed pump receives 50 li/sec of water with specific volume of 0. Pw: ( ) ( ) ( ) 9.

What power can a boiler feed pump can deliver a mass of 35 kg/s water at a head of 500 m? Solution: 12.Solution: Solve for water power. A pump running at 100 rpm delivers water against a head at 30 m. Pw: ( ) ( ) ( ) Solve for Brake Power. If pump speed will increased to 120 rpm. BP: 11. what is the increase in head? Solution: ( ) .

( ) 13. A 15 kW motor running at 350 rpm is used to drive a pump. determine the increased in pump capacity. Solution: 14. If speed will changed to 370 rpm. A pump is used to deliver 50 li/sec of sea water at a speed of 120 rpm. what is the increased in power? Solution: ( ) ( ) . If speed will increased to 135 rpm.

Solution: Using the typical pump efficiency of 74% ( )( ) . Power input is 70 kW. Find the total dynamic head in meters.2 meters below pump centerline. Suction gage reads 10 mm Hg vacuum and 1. at what rpm should the pump be operated to achieve the new head at the same efficiency? Solution: ( ) ( ) 16.15. A pump delivers 500 gpm of water against a total head of 200 ft and operating at 1770 rpm. Changes have increased the total head to 375 ft. A centrifugal pump delivers 80 liters per second of water on test.

34 kPa. If the speed is not to exceed 1352 rpm. The pump is incapable of lifting the water higher than 10. A vacuum pump is used to drain a flooded mine shaft of 20°C water. The pump pressure of water at this temperature is 2.16 m. It is desired to deliver 5 gpm at a head of 640 m in a single pump having specific speed not to exceed 40.17. What is the atmospheric pressure? Solution: Using Bernoulli’s Theorem ( ) ( ) 18. how many stages are required? Solution: √ √ ( Solve for number of stages: ) .

lifting the water to a total of 245 feet. The efficiency of the pump and motor are 64% and 84% respectively.14 m. A fuel pump is delivering 10 gpm of oil with a specific gravity of 0. The total head is 9. A pump driven by an electric motor moves 25 gpm of water from reservoir A to reservoir B. use 3 Hp motor 20. What size of motor (HP) is required? Solution: Solve for water power.83. Pw: ( ) ( ) ( ) Solve for size of motor: Therefore. Solution: ( )( )( ) . find how much energy does the pump consumes in kJ per hour.19.
