Agenda

HYDRODYNAMICS APPLIED TO A PUMPING SYSTEM 2d


Pump performance
Flow in a pump, velocities triangle, internal flow and energy losses.
Theoretical and practical head: characteristic curve.
Other characteristics: efficiency, power, NPSH required.
Changes in characteristics vs. rotation, viscosity, impeller shape, cavitation.
Pipe system
Liquid flows in pipes: friction losses.
System curve, resistance of flow and throttling control.
Operating point: normal and maximum capacities, change in fluid characteristics and incidence on
operating conditions.
Case study: study of a reflux line and its pump.
