Centrifugal pumps are turbomachines used for transporting liquids by raising a specified volume flow to a specified pressure level, which uses the dynamic principle of accelerating fluid, through centrifugal activity, and converting the kinetic energy into pressure.

A centrifugal pump essentially composed of a casing, a bearing housing, the pump shaft and an impeller. The liquid to be pumped flows through the suction nozzle to the impeller. The overhung impeller mounted on the shaft is driven via a coupling by a motor. The impeller transfers the energy necessary to transport the fluid and accelerates it in the circumferential direction. This causes the static pressure to increase in accordance with kinetics, because the fluid flow follows a curved path. The fluid exiting the impeller is decelerated in the volute and the following diffuser in order to utilize the greatest possible part of the kinetic energy at the impeller outlet for increasing the static pressure. The diffuser forms the discharge nozzle.

Fig 1.1 Centrifugal pump

A shaft seal, e.g. a stuffing box or a mechanical seal, prevents the liquid from escaping into the environment or the bearing housing. Impeller and casing are separated by a narrow annular seal through which some leakage flows back from the impeller outlet to the inlet. A second annular seal on the rear shroud serves the purpose of counterbalancing the axial forces acting on the impeller front and rear shrouds. The leakage through this seal flows back into the suction chamber through axial thrust balance hole which are drilled in hole. The impeller can be described by the hub, the rear shroud, the blades transferring energy to the fluid and the front shroud. In some applications the front shroud is omitted. In this case the impeller is termed “semi-open”. The leading face of the blade of the rotating impeller experiences the highest pressure for a given radius. It is called pressure surface or pressure side. The opposite blade surface with the lower pressure accordingly is the suction surface or suction side. When looking into the impeller eye we see the suction surface. Therefore, it is sometimes called the “visible blade face” or the “lower blade face”, whilst the pressure surface, not visible from the impeller eye, is called the “upper blade face”.

1.3 Types of centrifugal pump Centrifugal Pumps are classified into three general categories: • Radial flow – a centrifugal pump in which the pressure is developed wholly by

centrifugal force. • Semi-axial – a centrifugal pimp in which the pressure is developed by centrifugal

force partly by the lift of the vanes of the impeller on the liquid. • Axial flow – a centrifugal pump in which the pressure is developed by the propelling

or lifting action of the vanes of the impeller on the liquid.

1.4 Performance characteristics
Due to need of variable operational requirements, practically all pumps temporarily operate away from the design point which is defined by q* ≡ Q/Qopt = 1. Overload corresponds to q* > 1, while operation at q* < 1 is called “partload”. The pump characteristics describe the behavior of head, power consumption and efficiency as functions of the flow rate. The characteristics are measured on the test stand by throttling the discharge valve in order to obtain different flow rates corresponding to the valve openings. At a given speed, unique values of head and power are established at every specific flow rate. The resulting curve H = f (Q) is called “head-capacity curve” or “Q-H-curve”. 1.4.1. Theoretical characteristics The expression of theoretical head developed by centrifugal pump can be written from Euler’s equation in this way:

Where D = outer diameter of impeller N = Rotational speed A = the flow area at the periphery of the impeller β2 = outlet blade angle of the impeller From the above equation it can be seen that for a given impeller only H t heo and Q are the variable, so we can write above equation in this way H th eo = K 1 - K 2 Q Therefore head and discharge bears a linear relationship, so H-Q curve is a straight line and at zero flow K 1 is the head developed by the impeller. This is shown in figure 1.4

Hence Hactual = Htheoretical .2. Actual characteristics The actual characteristic is obtained by deducting losses from theoretical head.

In contrast. When operating a pump it is recommended that the pump be sized to run as close to the BEP as the application allows. the characteristic is said to be “unstable”.The shape of these performance curves over the range from shut-off (or zero flow Q = 0) to the maximum possible flow rate is important for the operational behaviour of the pump in the plant. if the Q-H-curve has a range with ∂H/∂Q > 0. M.6 Pump performance curve Best efficiency point: It is defined as a point on H-Q curve for the flow capacity at which efficiency is maximum. Fig 1. ∂H/∂Q < 0.e. i. This is termed a “stable characteristic”. The majority of applications require a Q-H-curve steadily falling with increasing flow rate. Unstable or flat Q-H-curves can cause problems in parallel operation or with a flat system characteristic.TECH DISSERTATION (TURBOMACHINE) Page 6 .

If the losses are known. The losses cause smaller head than the theoretical and higher power consumption. the result is a reduction in efficiency. loss free description of the impeller performance. Accordance with the actual performance curves depends on the models’ degree of detail and to what extent they describe the actual pump type. A study of losses in centrifugal pump may be undertaken one of the following reasons: 1. 2. Information about the nature and magnitude of losses may indicate the way to reduce these losses. Pump performance curves can be predicted by means of theoretical or empirical calculation models for each single type of loss. 2. In reality. because of a number of mechanical and hydraulic losses in impeller and pump casing. To know the actual characteristics from theoretical characteristics it is required to deduct the loss head from theoretical head.TECH DISSERTATION (TURBOMACHINE) Page 7 . it is possible to predetermine the head-capacity curve of a new pump by first assuming or establishing in some other manner the head-capacity curve of an idealized pump.CHAPTER 2 (LOSSES IN CENTRIFUGAL PUMP) INTRODUCTION As described in previous section Euler’s pump equation provides a simple.1 Types of losses in centrifugal pump: In centrifugal pump there are basically two types of losses hydraulic and mechanical which can be divided in number of sub groups which are listed as below:  Disk friction losses  Losses through annular seal  Incidence loss  Friction loss  Mixing loss  Recirculation loss  Mechanical loss M. 4. the pump performance is lower than predicted by the Euler pump equation. 3.

TECH DISSERTATION (TURBOMACHINE) Page 8 .1 Disk friction on impeller If the body rotates in a casing (as is the case in a pump) the velocity distribution between casing and rotating body depends on the distance between the impeller shroud and the casing wall as well as on the boundary layers which form on the stationary and rotating surfaces. A core flow with approximately cu = ½ω×r is obtained (in other words.r15/r25). u = ω×r can no longer be assumed).2. The friction power per side of the disk PRR = ω×M is obtained from the integral PRR = ω×∫dM (between inner radius r1 and outer radius r2) as PRR = (π/5)×ρ×cf×ω3×r2 5×(1 .1. The friction coefficient cf depends on the Reynolds number and the surface roughness. shear stresses corresponding to the local friction coefficient cf occur on its surface. 2. On a disk rotating in an extended stationary fluid (without the influence of a casing) the shear stress is τ = ½ρ×cf×u2 with u = ω×R.1 Disk friction losses When a circular disk or a cylinder rotates in a fluid. Fig. In the case of turbulent flow the power absorbed by a disk in a casing therefore amounts to roughly half of the power of a free disk rotating in a stationary fluid. The friction force on a surface element dA = 2π×r×dr is then dF = 2π×τ×r×dr and the torque exercised by friction becomes: dM = r×dF = π×ρ×cf×ω2×r4×dr. M.

Fig.The disk friction losses depend on the following parameters:  Reynolds number  Roughness of the rotating disk  Roughness of the casing wall  Axial side wall gap  Shape of the casing and size of the impeller side wall gap  Influencing the boundary layer  Leakage flow  Exchange of momentum 2.2 Leakage flows: a) multistage pump. one percent of leakage flow also means an efficiency loss of one percent.1.e. this axial flow can be treated according to the laws of channel flow if the hydraulic diameter dh = 2×s is used. Since the entire mechanical energy transferred by the impeller to the leakage flow (i. Due to the pressure difference across the seal. b) impeller with balance holes. an axial flow velocity cax is generated. the increase of the static head and the kinetic energy) is throttled in the seal and converted into heat. Any leakage reduces the pump efficiency. Through the rotation of the inner cylinder a circumferential flow is superimposed on the axial flow.2 Leakage loss through annular seals The annular seal consists of a case ring and a rotating inner cylinder. 2. With the rotor at rest. The clearance s between the rings is small compared to the radius of the rotating parts (s << r sp).TECH DISSERTATION (TURBOMACHINE) Page 9 . To describe these flow conditions two Reynolds numbers are required: Re for the axial and Reu for the circumferential flow. c) double entry impeller M.

dsp*2). the pressure difference acting over the seal must be established.e. ) the pressure between the impeller outlet and the seal drops in accordance with the rotation of the fluid in the impeller sidewall gap . With radially inward directed leakages (Qs1 and Qs2 in Fig. This is typically.rsp2) = ½ρ×k2×u22×(1 . The static pressure Hp prevailing at the impeller outlet can be calculated from In most cases Hp can be estimated accurately enough with the help of the degree of reaction Hp = RG×H. This is described by the rotation factor k = β/ω (β is the angular velocity of the fluid). M.2. For determining the pressure difference over the seal at the impeller inlet we use equation: The greater the fluid rotation (i.1.1. 2. Since k increases with growing leakage a radially inward leakage depends on itself and partly limits itself.3 Incidence losses Incidence loss occurs when there is a difference between the flow angle and blade angle at the impeller or guide vane leading edges. the greater k) the greater is the pressure drop in the sidewall gap and the smaller is the pressure difference over the seal and the resulting leakage flow. For low and moderate specific speeds RG = 0.TECH DISSERTATION (TURBOMACHINE) Page 10 .75 is a good assumption.2.1 calculation procedure for leakage loss To start with. the case at part load or when prerotation exists. As per Eq The pressure reduction in the impeller sidewall gap can be calculated from Δp = ½ρ×β 2×(r22 .

The designer must therefore make sure that flow angles and blade angles match each other so the incidence loss can minimized.TECH DISSERTATION (TURBOMACHINE) Page 11 . see Figure. The recirculation zone causes a flow contraction after the blade leading edge. 2. The flow must once again decelerate after the contraction to fill the entire blade channel and mixing loss occurs. incidence losses also occur at the volute tongue.Fig. Fig.3 Incidence loss as function of flow A recirculation zone occurs on one side of the blade when there is difference between the flow angle and the blade angle.4 Velocity triangle at impeller inlet M. 2. At off-design flow. Rounding blade edges and volute casing tongue can reduce the incidence loss.

4 Friction loss Flow friction occurs where the fluid is in contact with the rotating impeller surfaces and the interior surfaces in the pump casing.5 Frictional head loss as a function of velocity 2. Non-uniform flow generates losses by turbulent dissipation through exchange of momentum between the streamlines. Such pressure losses are called “form” or “mixing” losses. Fig. the reverse process of converting kinetic energy into static pressure involves far greater losses.1. The magnitude of the friction loss depends on the roughness of the surface and the fluid velocity relative to the surface.1.2.2. Fig. 2. The flow friction causes a pressure loss which reduces the head. The reason for this is that in real flows the velocity distributions are mostly nonuniform and subject to further distortion upon deceleration.TECH DISSERTATION (TURBOMACHINE) Page 12 .5 Mixing Losses or Losses due to vortex dissipation While static pressure can be converted into kinetic energy without a major loss (accelerated flow).6 Mixing loss M.

When designing hydraulic components. The result is a considerable mixing loss. These losses depend on the design of the pump. Generally mechanical losses found by documentation of the manufacturer of the pump. Fig.e. 2.1. The extent of the zones depends on geometry and operating point.

Figure shows an example of recirculation in the impeller. impeller. The recirculation zones reduce the effective cross-section area which the flow experiences. High velocity gradients Occurs in the flow between the main flow which has high velocity and the eddies which have a velocity close to zero. i. M.7 Recirculation loss in impeller 2. return channel or volute casing.6 Recirculation Losses Recirculation zones in the hydraulic components typically occur at part load when the flow is below the design flow.2.

Tuzson considers the following hydraulic losses for the calculating of losses (1) Incidence losses. Stepanoff`s Model 3. Gulich`s Model 3.CHAPTER 3 (LOSS MODELS) 3. 1.1. It is assumed that the loss is proportional to the square of the difference between the tangential component of the inlet velocity and the circumferential velocity.1.

The hydraulic radius of the impeller blade is obtained by dividing the passage cross sectional area by half of the circumference.3 Volute Head Loss: It results from a mismatch of the velocity leaving the impeller and the velocity in the volute throat. The velocity approaching the volute throat can be calculated by assuming that the velocity leaving the impeller decreases in proportion to the radius because of the conservation of angular momentum.1. The friction coefficient can be adjusted but has a default value of 0. the velocity head difference is lost.

In pumps the diffuser accounts for the greatest head loss. that half of the diffuser inlet head is lost. volute and diffuser.1.2 Gulich Model [11]: Gulich presents the model for the losses in the various component of the centrifugal pump.TECH DISSERTATION (TURBOMACHINE) Page 16 .1.( √ )( ) [3-5] Diffuser skin friction loss is given by: ( √ )( ) [3-6] 3.6 Diffuser Loss: To calculate the diffuser loss the program estimates the pressure recovery coefficient based on the area ratio and applies an adjustable loss coefficient.5 Diffusion Loss: This loss needs to be taken into account. it is useful to estimate the loss in individual components. [3-7] 3. Such calculations have an empirical character since the three-dimensional M.1. Hydraulic efficiency calculated from the power balance does not give any information about the contribution of the losses individual pump components. Some designers assume. as a rule of thumb.

The program assumes that when the ratio of the relative velocity at the inlet to the outlet exceeds a value of 1. since separation invariably appears in the impeller at some point. To answer this question.

Experimental work has been conducted on different slurry pump impeller and side-liner M. Greg C. Instantaneous rotational speed. The model is presented and the results are compared with the experimental data. P. The main reason for this could be growing the gap between the impeller . The model predicts well the trend of the dynamic head characteristics during transients. As amount trimmed increases i. as impeller diameter becomes smaller efficiency deteriorates significantly. the influence of disregarded similarity after impeller trimming is examined. In this paper. flow rate. Experiments have been conducted on a volute pump with different valve openings to study the dynamic behaviour of the pump during normal start up and stopping.e. The method can be extended to the analysis of purely unsteady cases. For the purpose of this experiment. 8 a series of efficiency lines is depicted and a good adherence can be noted for diameters 190 and 180 mm and even for 170 mm.

As the model contains speed acceleration and unsteady discharge terms. Walker. and delivery and suction pressures of the pump are recorded and it is observed in all the tested cases that the change of pump behaviour during the transient period is quasi-steady. In Fig. Craig I. Similar experiments have also been conducted when the test pump was part of a hydraulic system to study the system effect on the transient characteristics. The experiment was accomplished on a low specific speed centrifugal pump. The dynamic characteristics of the pump have been analysed by a numerical model using the method of characteristics. when a small length of discharge pipe line is connected to discharge flange of the pump. The obtained results are presented in non-dimensional form in a ψ−φ diagram. It is observed in all the tested cases that the transient head characteristics closely follow the steady-state system head curve and the change of operating point during normal starting and stopping transients is quasi-steady. After the pump impeller has been trimmed. According to affinity law efficiency line should remain the same for the series of trimmed impellers.

To ensure a reasonably fast wear rate. The entire range of specific speeds.(3) the wear rate was constant for varying solids concentration(4) the wear rate was constant for varying impeller tip speed. The author also has calculated the leakage loss for a number of double suction horizontally split pumps of different specific speeds and the in the results it will be observed that leakage loss decreases with increasing specific speed. He gives formula to find out the losses. This loss expressed as percentage of pumps of different specific speeds. Formulae are given to determine the co efficient for the hydraulic losses.

The losses also increase with the wetted area of the passages. M. He show that the friction loss increases with the square of the flow. The turbulent loss is depending upon the angles of the impeller and diffuser vanes. Sudden change in the section or the sharp change turn should be avoided. The turbulent loss will increase if these angles are not correct. so they should be kept as small as possible. disk friction and leakage loss .
