It is designed to be a working guide for engineers and technicians dealing with centrifugal pumps in the water. Additional practice problems are provided in each chapter as further exercise. Minor losses in valves and fittings. and process industries. performance curves. The first chapter introduces the reader to the various types of pumps used in the industry. Chapter 4 introduces the various methods of calculating pressure loss due to friction in piping systems. Using examples. Chapter 8 covers several applications and . The Darcy equation. as well as how they are used with the pump head curves to define the operating point for a specific pump and pipeline combination. Chapter 6 explains Affinity Laws for centrifugal pumps and how the pump performance is affected by variation in pump impeller diameter or speed. The concept of specific speed is introduced and power calculations explained. the Moody diagram. and the use of the two popular equations for pressure drop (Hazen-Williams and Colebrook-White) are reviewed. Chapter 7 introduces the concept of net positive suction head (NPSH) and its importance in preventing cavitation in centrifugal pumps. The reader will be introduced to the basic theory of pumps and how pumps are applied to practical situations using examples of simulations. The method of determining the impeller size or speed required to achieve a specific operating point is explained using examples.S. In most cases. the theory is explained and followed by solved example problems in both U. including variation with impeller speed and diameter. and several examples illustrating the method of calculation are solved. the properties of http://www.

The next chapter discusses the performance of centrifugal pumps in more detail. the method of calculating the NPSH available in a piping system versus the NPSH required for a specific pump is illustrated. and equivalent lengths of pipes in series and parallel. Chapter 5 introduces pipe system head curves and their are explained using example chemical.Buy this file: http://www. Chapter 3 reviews the effect of liquid specific gravity and viscosity on pump performance and how the Hydraulic Institute Method can be used to correct the pump performance for high viscosity liquids.
