The client will usually specify the desired head and pump capacity. The type and speed of the

driver may also be specified. Speed is governed by considerations of cost and efficiency as well as drivers

available to the client. Given these parameters, the task of the engineer is to minimize cost.

Which cost to minimize, first cost or life-cycle cost, however, is an important consideration. From

a life cycle viewpoint, we must take into account power consumption and operation and maintenance costs.

These considerations call for optimizing efficiency, reliability (the mean time between failure) and

maintainability (the mean time to repair). In general, designing to optimize these categories results in

increased costs. Often, these considerations are not very important and we can design for minimum first

cost. In appropriate cases, the engineer should initiate a dialog with the client concerning available options.

For example, designing a boiler feed pump that operates continuously would probably call for maximizing

efficiency. Efficiency considerations would not be so important, however, for a drainage pump that is only

required to operate occasionally.

PIPE CONNECTIONS AND VELOCITIES

The diameter of the suction pipe is usually made larger that the pump suction flange and both are

made larger than the discharge flange and pipe. Church recommends keeping the velocity at the suction

flange about 9 or 10 ft/s and that at the discharge flange between 18 and 25 ft/s.

LEAKAGE LOSSES

To design the impeller, account must be taken of leakage from the discharge side back to the

suction side. To reduce the leakage, wearing rings are fitted to the impeller and casing. These rings are

designed with specified clearances. The leakage across each ring can be calculated from the following

formula:

QL CA 2 gH L

where: C = flow coefficient

A = leakage area = Ds / 2

D = mean clearance diameter

s = diametrical clearance

0.010 ( D 6)(0.001)in3

For small wearing rings with precise machining and ball bearings, the minimum clearance may be

reduced to 0.008 in.

The diameter of the impeller eye, Do, is dependent on the shaft

diameter, Ds, which must initially be approximated. The hub diameter, DH ,

is made 5/16 to inch larger than Ds. After estimating Ds and DH , Do is

based on the known flowrate. The inlet vane edge diameter, D1, is made

about the same as Do to ensure smooth flow.

Shaft diameter. Calculate shaft diameter based on torque. Increase the calculated value

somewhat to allow for bending moment which is unknown at this point and to ensure that the

critical speed exceeds the operational speed by a reasonable margin. The bending moment

will depend on the weight distribution of the shaft and any unbalanced radial thrust acting on

the impeller. From the figure shown below, with the given flow of 2500 gpm and calculated

value of specific speed of 1450, we select a tentative value of efficiency of 80%.

The normal range for discharge angles is between 20 and 25 degrees9. Furthermore, 2 is usually made

larger than the inlet angle. Assume 2 = 200.

The radial outlet velocity, Vr2 , is made the same as, or slightly less than, the radial inlet velocity, Vr1.

Assume Vr2 = 11 ft/s10.

The inertia of the rotating fluid causes a circulatory flow opposite to the direction of rotation of the

impeller. This flow, superimposed on the outward flow, results in the fluid leaving the impeller at an angle

absolute angle, 2 , increased. The effect of circulatory flow is to reduce V2 and the theoretical head.

Church defines a circulatory flow coefficient, , as:

11. Cross-section of impeller.

Wall and vane thicknesses are usually made a minimum consistent with good foundry practice. The stresses

due to centrifugal force and fluid pressure are relatively low for average applications; otherwise, they need

to be taken into account12.

Connect outlet to inlet by a straight line faired into entrance to provide a smooth transition. Make tip of hub

12. Check leakage loss.

From the figure on page 8, the mean diameter of the clearance is 8 in. Let s be the diametral clearance.

Church states that the wearing ring clearance for good practice is 0.01 in for rings of 6 in diameter and less.

For rings greater than 6 in, increase the clearance by 0.001 in for every inch of ring diameter greater than 6

in:

From Figure 6-1, p 92, Church, the flow coefficient for 1760 rpm and a 0.013 in clearance is 0.410. Thus,

the leakage is:

The per cent leakage is

0.075

DESIGN OF VANES

must design the vane such that this angle increases smoothly from 13 to 20 . We note also that the radial

components of velocity to these two angles are 12 and 11 ft/s, respectively. We also see from the vector

diagram that

then:

W Vr / sin . The relative velocities corresponding to the entrance and outlet stations are

12 / sin 130 53.3 ft / s and 11 / sin 200 32.2 ft / s . To obtain intermediate values of radii

corresponding to intermediate values of the position angle, , we proceed as follows (see Fig. 3):

1) Plot , Vr, and W against vane radius, r, for the entrance and outlet stations and connect by a

straight line (or a smooth curve).

2) The corresponding values for vane angle, , are computed from

values are also plotted against their radii.

Use a sufficiently close spacing of r to obtain a smooth vane shape.

3) Plot the radii against to give the shape of the trailing edge

of the vane.

Draw the front edge of the vane with the same curvature as the back edge with a thickness of about 1/8 in 14.
