For an incompressible fluid passing through a fixed control volume

Rate at which mass enters region = rate at which mass leaves control volume Q=v1A1 = v2A2

A is the cross sectional area of the control volume through which the fluid flows.

1 is the entry to the control volume

2 is the exit of the control volume

Where z = height of the fluid and p = pressure measured at the base of the fluid. For example, a column of cold

water (15 deg C) 10.2m high produces 1 bar pressure at its base.

According to laminar flow theory, the velocity of fluid in a pipe has a parabolic profile as shown below:

In piping systems the flow is usually turbulent. Turbulent flow also has a rounded velocity profile, but rather

than a parabolic shape, the curve is flatter as shown below:

• Laminar Flow occurs at very low velocity or with high viscosity fluids. This is often visualised as

streaks of colored fluid flow in straight lines.

Page 3 of 18 UWA Mechanical 3rd yr Thermofluids course Version 1 2004

• Turbulent Flow flow occurs above critical velocity and involves the irregular, random motion of the

fluid particles

• Reynolds Number (Re) determines laminar or turbulent flow and depends on pipe diameter, flow

velocity, density and viscosity of the fluid.

Re = Vdρ/µ d=pipe ID (mm), v=flow velocity (m/s), ρ=density kg/m3, µ=viscosity (cP).

Flow is considered if laminar if Re < 2000, turbulent if Re > 4000, critical zone 2000<Re<4000. Reynolds

number is used in the calculation of friction factor for friction loss of fluids flowing in pipes

This has applications in piping systems for calculations such as the force exerted on the pipe flange by fluid

moving through an elbow. It can also be used to derive Bernoulli’s equation from 1st. principles (see any Fluids

text).

In pipe flow, as with any situation, energy is conserved from one point in fluid flow to another. The energy can

be in the form of kinetic energy (KE), potential energy (PE) or internal energy (IE).

[Rate of heat transfer in]+[Rate of work done on sys]=[Rate of increase of IE +KE + PE]

Mathematically this is written as for steady, uniform, incompressible flow as (where u is specific internal

energy)

This is the steady state general energy equation as presented earlier in Thermo section of this course and AT200.

W& is the rate of work done by (+) or on (-) the control volume W& = W& shaft + W& normal .stress + W& shear .stress

Shaft work rate is transmitted by the rotating shaft W& shaft = Tω (shaft torque x rotational speed)

Shear work rate is the product of shear stress, area and fluid velocity component parallel to the control surface.

With pumps the control surfaces lie adjacent to solid boundaries where the fluid velocity is zero. In this case

there is no shear work although there may be shear stress.

Page 4 of 18 UWA Mechanical 3rd yr Thermofluids course Version 1 2004

Normal stress work can be written in most situations as a function of the pressure acting on the control surface

ρg 2g

This is the foundation equation for sizing pumps used in unit and we will spend time discussing how to

determine the values in this equation.

If one is dealing with a compressor substitute for the internal energy with u e −u i = cv (Te − Ti ) and use the ideal

gas law p ρ = RT

For systems with no friction we have the MECHANICAL ENERGY EQUATION

W& S = m& g e + + ( z 2 − z1 ) where Mechanical Energy is that which can be converted to

mechanical work completely by a mechanical device such as a turbine or pump.

Special conditions for use: inviscid and incompressible fluids, steady flow, constant density, no mechanical

work and no friction

It is derived from the previous equation for the special case when W& S = 0 and hL = 0.

ρg 2 g ρg 2 g

The terms in this equation are referred to as, pressure head, velocity head and static head respectively.

Dimensional analysis will show that all three terms are in meters.

Due to layers of fluid shearing across each other, the velocity of a liquid is maximum in the centre of the flow,

and zero at the pipe wall. This means that the pressure due to velocity at the pipe wall is zero. Thus, head due to

velocity can be measured as the difference between the head at the centre of the pipe and the edge (See Figure).

Physically this can be done using a pitot tube for the centre reading and a piezometer for the pipe wall reading.

This can be seen in the test facility in the CWR Fluids laboratory.

Page 5 of 18 UWA Mechanical 3rd yr Thermofluids course Version 1 2004

The term ‘head’ relates fluid pressure in a pipe to the meters of water that would push up an open topped tube.

Head depends on the density of the fluid and the density of air and is the sum of the static head, velocity head

and pressure head.

The velocity can be estimated from the pressure difference between the fluid at the side wall and the stagnation

pressure at the centre of the pipe. From Bernoulli’s equation

p1 V12 p

+ = 2 ; where p2 is pressure at the stagnation point and p1 and V1 are the pressure upsteam.

Thus the velocity at a point in the pipe is equal to the square root of the height difference between the tubes

multiplied by 2g. v = 2 gh

piezometer velocity

The conservation of angular momentum principle when applied to the shaft of a pump can be used to show that

torque is transformed to a change in velocity of fluid through the impeller. This is done from first principles

using the equation below:

dL0 sys

= ∑ M 0, j + ∑ m& i ( ri × Vi ) − ∑ m& e ( r ×e Ve )

dt j in out

This equation can be written in scalar form to illustrate its application to pumps. The fixed coordinate system is

chosen with the z axis aligned with the axis of rotation of the machine. The fluid enters the rotor at a radial

location ri with uniform velocity Vθi and exits at re with absolute velocity Vθe. Thus the equation above becomes:

(

W&M = ωTSHAFT = m& ω reVθe − rV

i θi )

where Tshaft is the shaft torque

.

m is the mass flow rate

r is the radius

Vθ is the tangential component of the absolute fluid velocity

e is the exit of the impeller

Page 6 of 18 UWA Mechanical 3rd yr Thermofluids course Version 1 2004

i is the inlet of the impeller

This is Euler’s turbomachinery equation, which is used to calculate the hydraulic power a pump is supplying,

which in turn can allow the calculation of pump efficiency

This figure shows the inlet and exit radii, and the

tangential components of the fluid velocity Vθ at

the inlet and exit. It should be noted that the fluid

velocity V is not the same as U = ωr the velocity

of the impeller.

It is conventional is pump design to describe flow

passing through the impeller in velocity terms

relative to the rotating coordinate system of the

rotating impeller. This is best done using

“velocity triangles”.

1.1. Centrifugal Pump Generic design

There are many different styles of centrifugal pumps, but they can essentially be divided into three broad groups

a. horizontal or vertical

b. single impeller (end suction/split case, single volute, double volute, double suction) or multi-stage

impeller designs

c. Impeller design: Radial, mixed flow, axial. Open and closed, semi open designs.

The governing principles of all centrifugal pumps are the same but the design details vary.

m& g ρg 2g

Identify from the layout given above how each of the contributions to the equation.

One very important point obvious from this equation is that the power draw on a centrifugal pump is dependent

on the SYSTEM in which the pump is installed.

In order to correctly size a pump for a particular application it is necessary to understand the system in which it

is installed. One selects a pump based on its ability to supply the required flowrate for the system. The operating

point of a pump is set by the intersection of the PUMP curve (specific to the pump) with the SYSTEM curve

(defined by the piping system, tank elevation, over-pressures etc)

1. Determine flowrate

2. Obtain fluid property information

3. Design piping system

4. Determine the System Head Curve

5. Decide on duty point

6. Calculate Power required and Specific speed values

7. Calculate Net Positive Suction Head available

8. Develop pump specification sheet

9. Select a pump

10. Evaluate pump selection

1.5.1. Step 1: Determine flowrate/pump

• Determine number of pumps required (function of criticality)

• Define realistic maximum and minimum flowrates

• Density, specific gravity, Dynamic or Absolute viscosity, Kinematic viscosity, Density (ρ (Rho) = mass/unit

volume, SI units kg/m3).

• Water density at 20 deg C = 1000 kg/m3

• Specific weight γ = ρg , Weight of fluid per unit volume.

• Specific gravity S= ρ/ ρH20.

• Dynamic (Absolute) Viscosity µ . Shear stress = µ x strain rate. Newtonian fluids obey this rule. Units 1

cp(centipoise) = 10-3 Pa s. 1 Pa s = 1 N s/m2 = 1 kg/(ms). Viscosity varies greatly with temperature. Use

engineering tables and Formula sheet.

• Absolute viscosity examples. Water at 15 deg C = 1.0 cp, 60 deg C = 0.47 cp, 100 deg C = 0.3 cp, Gasoline

at 15 deg C = 0.6 cp, SAE 10 Lube at 60 deg C = 12cp, SAE 70 Lube at 60 deg C = 120cp

• Kinematic Viscosity is the Ratio of viscosity to density ψ = µ/ρ, Units 1 m2/s = 106 cSt (cSt = centristokes)

• Increase viscosity - increase losses - less head generated - lower efficiency

• Effect is greater on smaller pumps due to smaller internal passage dimensions

• Used to calculate the Reynolds Number which determines the set of pump equations to use

• This is a compromise between installation costs and running costs.

• Small diameter pipes lead to high line velocities and friction losses.

• Elbows and fittings also result in friction losses

• Suction piping design is critical to avoid creating swirl/uneven flow at the pump suction

v = line velocity m/s, Q = flow rate cu.m/s, A = inside pipe area sq.m, D = inside diameter m

Suction piping (water) = 1.2-2.1 m/s, Discharge piping (water) =1.2-3.0 m/s,

Slurry piping (mining) = 1.5-2.5 m/s but there are special considerations due to limiting settling velocity

(Durand’s Formula).

Discharge piping (hydrocarbons)= 1-7 m/s

Resistance to flow as liquid moves through pipe results in loss of head. This friction loss hL is measured in m.

Resistance is due to viscous shear stresses within the liquid and friction losses at contact of moving fluid and

pipe wall

Friction Factor f

The friction factor is determined experimentally. For laminar flow f=64/Re.

For turbulent flow f depends on Re also the relative roughness ε/d. ε = roughness of pipe wall, d = pipe diameter

Need to see appropriate table

Examples for the Friction factor values for clean commercial pipe with turbulent flow, see Pump Formula sheet.

hL = f (v2/2g) (L/D)=K(v2/2g)

• Calculated using resistance coefficients K multiplied by V2/2g. K is determined experimentally by pressure

loss tests, see appropriate charts for values. K= f (L/D)

• Examples of K values

• Can be expressed as a total value for a particular size of a function of f.

• Accurate K values are supplied by the manufacturer but generic values are available in tables

• For example: 4" Gate valve K=0.14 or 8f where f is dependant on line size and material, 4" Butterfly valve

K=0.77 or 45f

• Contraction and enlargement losses

• Sudden enlargement. K = (1 - d12/d22)2

• Subscript 1 and 2 represent small and large ID respectively

•

Sudden contraction. K = 0.5(1 - d12/d22)2

• See references for gradual enlargement/ contraction

Summary for Friction Loss calculation

hL = ∑ f + ∑ f

d 2 g pipe d 2 g fittings

This can also include the entrance and exit losses if they are significant

The Darcy-Weisbach method is the technically correct method however many engineers use Hazen Williams

which is convenient and produces reliable results for water with turbulent flow

See reference book for equation and C factors. Widely used for simple flowsheet calculations

Pipe friction losses = x m/100 m pipe for a specific pipe ID, material and line velocity and temperature. Depends

on material, condition and age

For example the friction loss of 700 l/s water through 4” Sched 40 steel pipe is 0.194 bar per 100 m or 1.98

atmospheric in suction tank in m, h(s) = total suction head

h(d)= p(d) + V2d/2g+ z(d) + hL(d) + h(e)

z(d) = static discharge head, hL(d) = friction loss in discharge line, h(e) = exit loss, hP(d) = overpressure in

discharge tank in m, h(d) = total discharge head

Note: the friction loss is SUBTRACTED on the suction side but ADDED on the discharge side … WHY?

H = h(d) - h(s)

For an existing pump installation you will need a set of pressure gauges

The pressure P on a gauge located close to the flange of the suction of the pump will measure

Page 13 of 18 UWA Mechanical 3rd yr Thermofluids course Version 1 2004

P = p atm + p ( s ) + ρg ⋅ z ( s ) − hL ( s )

The conversion to ‘head’ and addition of the suction velocity head will give a value for the total suction head

The difference between these values in the Total Head on the pump

Total Head = [Disch gauge + Vel Hd (at DG)] - [Suction gauge + Vel Hd (at SG)]

• leakage (recirculation around the impeller outlet to inlet, internal to the pump)

• hydraulic losses (viscosity and non-uniform flow)

• mechanical losses (friction losses in the bearings and seals)

Many design charts are a function of Ns. As Ns increases

• Impeller shape changes from radial to axial

• Lower head per stage

• Blade loading increases

• Maximum velocity increases

Page 14 of 18 UWA Mechanical 3rd yr Thermofluids course Version 1 2004

• Tendancy to cavitate increases

Low Ns values: radial impellers, large diameter, narrow profile, high head per stage

Medium Ns: Francis vane impellers, low diameter to profile ratio, low head-high volume

High Ns mixed flow impellers

Very high Ns axial flow impeller

n=rpm; Q*=Flow gpm;H*=Head ft; NPSHR* (ft) [The gpm is per impeller eye]

Nss is a function of NPSH required. Modifying the diameter of the impeller eye, increase the flow, reduces the

NPSH required but increases the value of Nss. This causes a reduction in the low flow capability of the pump.

An acceptable margin of NPSHA - NPSHR must be maintained over the entire operating range to prevent

CAVITATION. Cavitation is caused by the local vaporisation of a fluid when the static pressure drops below the

vapour pressure. The small bubbles filled with vapour that form in the low pressure region (suction eye of the

pump) will collapse on moving into high pressure regions (inside the impeller). This "implosion" causes pitting

on the metal surface, vibration and a drop in efficiency.

For NPSH calculation must understand difference between absolute and gauge pressure

• Absolute pressure = Gauge pressure + Atmospheric pressure at elevation

• Standard barometric pressure is 1.01325 bar or 760 mm Hg and changes with elevation above sea level.

• Gauge pressure is pressure above barometric pressure

• Convert gauge pressure readings to m by (x 0.102/SG)

• Absolute pressure always refers to perfect vacuum as base

NPSH available

• Net positive suction head is the absolute suction head at suction nozzle corrected to datum less the vapour

pressure of the liquid at operating temperature. Determines at what point liquid will vaporize at the lowest

pressure point of the pump (cavitation) and is characteristic of the system. NPSHA varies with capacity and

is always positive

• For flooded suction,

p + patm

• NPSH A = zsuction + suction − hL ( suction ) − hVP ( abs )

ρg

• hvp(abs) = head in m corresponding to the ABSOLUTE vapour pressure of the liquid at the temperature being

pumped. This is determined from Tables of vapour pressure (usually given in bar)

• Vapour pressure water at 15 C = 0.17m abs at sea level, 100 C = 10.3 m abs

NPSH required

• Characteristic of pump design and represents the minimum margin required between suction head and

vapour pressure. NPSHR varies with capacity. It is determined by manufacturer and verified by NPSH pump

test. NPSHR depends on impeller design, flow rate, rpm, liquid and other factors

• There should be a margin (at least 1m though depends on application between NPSHA and NPSHR)

Page 15 of 18 UWA Mechanical 3rd yr Thermofluids course Version 1 2004

• Match Pump and System curve

• Determine Efficiency and NPSH margin

• Compare efficiency, NPSH margin, and off design performance of different pumps

• Determine materials to be used based on fluid properties

• Consider vendor technical support and spare parts issues

• Consider preferred vendor supply contracts

Affinity Laws

Use of the affinity laws to select the optimum impeller diameter and/or pump rotating speed (if a variable

frequency drive or sheave drive system is appropriate)

Allows for performance at one speed to be predicted from known performance at known speed (or impeller

diameter)

Q = Q1 (n/n1) = Q1 (D/D1)

H = H1 (n/n1)2 = H1 (D/D1)2

P = P1 (n/n1)3 = P1 (D/D1)3

n/D = new desired speed rpm/diameter. n1D1=speed rpm/diameter for known characteristics Q1, H1 and P1

In order to supply sufficient head or volumetric flow it may be necessary to place pumps in series or in parallel

respectively.

Pumps in parallel: the combined pump curve is obtained by adding the capacities of the individual pumps at the

same head

Pumps in series (the first pump discharge into the suction of the second pump): the combined pump curve is

obtained by adding the head of the individual pumps at the same capacity.

Aim of both is to prevent leaking of pumpage out

of the volute

Mech seals consist of a stationary and a rotating

face pressed together under mechanical and

hydraulic pressure to prevent leakage. Mech seals

are standard in API and ANSI applications

Packing still widely used in slurry applications

1.6. Potential source of pump problems

Design (Critical speed - lateral/torsional)

Application/ Sizing (Low NPSHA, Off-BEP)

Assembly (Bearings, Looseness, Vane pass, Unbalance)

Installation (Alignment, Looseness, Soft foot)

Operation (Pulsations, Turbulence, Cavitation, Recirculation, Piping resonance)

Each of these will result in vibration and other problems if not engineered correctly

Operational problems

Theoretically as long as NPSH(A) >> NPSH(R) then a centrifugal pump can operate over a wide range of

capacities however the exact capacity is determined by intersection of pump head-capacity curve with the system

head curve. Can vary pump curve by changes in speed or system curve by throttling valves however operation is

only optimum at one point called BEP

Is any condition when a pump delivers flow in excess or below the capacity at best efficiency BEP

Results from oversizing the pump. Oversized pumps usually require throttling to move the operating point back

up the curve, this results in higher power consumption. If not throttled, higher flows can result in NPSH

problems. High flow situation also happen when two pumps are in parallel and one is taken out of service

Cavitation

Occurs when NPSHr>NPSHa

Causes impeller damage on visible side of vanes due to implosions (collapsing of the bubble). Identified by loud

continuous noise “pumping rocks" and high vibration

Avoid cavitation by increase NPSHA or decreasing NPSHR

Increase NPSHA by raising suction level, lower pump, reduce friction losses in suction, Subcool liquid

(injection)

Decrease NPSHr by using slower speed (or variable freq drive), installing a double suction impeller, increasing

impeller eye area, using an oversize pump or installing an inducer ahead of impeller

A Reduction in demand results in throttling at pump discharge and the operating point moves up the curve

towards shut off. This causes recirculation resulting in hydraulic unbalance, vane passing forces, effects from

recirculation through wear rings, suction and discharge recirculation within the impeller, rotating stall,

cavitation, surge and system instabilities. These combine to cause pressure fluctuations, surging and vibration.

1.8. Positive Displacement pumps

• Often used for viscous liquids and for those requiring a shear free action

• Inherently leak resistant design

• Provide a fixed displacement per revolution. Pump will develop as much pressure as required to overcome

discharge pressure up to the point where motor trips or relief valve opens.

• Often require discharge pulsation dampeners and suction stabilisers, generally pressurized vessels with a

gas-liquid interface.

• Acceleration Head H(ac) represents energy required accelerate the column of fluid (m)

• API standards 674, 675 and 676.

p + patm

• NPSH A = zsuction + suction − hL ( suction ) − hVP ( abs ) minus H(ac)

ρg

• H(ac) = LsvsC/Kg, where Ls and vs are the length of and velocity in the suction line.

• C=constant dependant on type of pump, 0.4 for simplex single acting, 0.2 for simplex double acting, 0.2 for

duplex single acting. See appropriate reference for full list

• K=factor for the relative compressibility of liquid (eg.K=1.4 for hot water, 2.5 for hot oil)
