Pumps may be classified in two general types, dynamic and positive displacement. Positive displacement pumps are those in which energy is imparted to the liquid in a fixed displacement volume, such as a casing or a cylinder, by the rotary motion of gears, screws, or vanes, or by reciprocating pistons or plungers. Centrifugal pumps are dynamic. A centrifugal pump is a machine that uses rotation to impart velocity to a liquid, it then converts that velocity into flow. Centrifugal pumps are made up of two primary components: an impeller and a casing. The rotating impeller generates velocity and the casing converts velocity into flow. Centrifugal Pump Handbook Book (PDF) by Sulzer Pumps Limited – This long-awaited new edition is the complete reference for engineers and designers working on pump design and development or using centrifugal pumps in the field. This authoritative guide has been developed with access to the technical expertise of the leading centrifugal pump developer, Sulzer Pumps.

The publication also ponders on high speed pumps, double-case pumps, hydraulic power recovery turbines, and shaft design and axial thrust. The book is a valuable source of data for pump designers, students, and rotating equipment engineers. Jun 28,  · Centrifugal Pumps describes the whole range of the centrifugal pump (mixed flow and axial flow pumps are dealt with more briefly), with emphasis on the development of the boiler feed pump. Organized into 46 chapters, this book discusses the general hydrodynamic principles, performance, dimensions, type number, flow, and efficiency of Book Edition: 3. Centrifugal Pumps: Basic Concepts of Operation, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting (Part- I) Introduction The operating manual of any centrifugal pump often starts with a general statement, “Your centrifugal pump will give you completely trouble free and satisfactory service only. This book gives an unparalleled, up-to-date, in-depth treatment of all kinds of flow phenomena encountered in centrifugal pumps including the complex interactions of fluid flow with vibrations and wear of .

Pumps DOE-HDBK/ CENTRIFUGAL PUMPS. Diffuser. Figure 3 Centrifugal Pump Diffuser. Some centrifugal pumps contain diffusers. A. diffuser. is a set of stationary vanes that surround the impeller. The purpose of the diffuser is to increase the efficiency of the centrifugal pump by allowing a more gradual expansion and less turbulent area. Centrifugal Pumps. Edited by: Dimitris Papantonis. ISBN , PDF ISBN , Published the object of a book on centrifugal pumps must cover a large field. The present book examines a number of these more specific topics, beyond the contents of a textbook, treating not only the pump's design and operation. This book gives an unparalleled, up-to-date, in-depth treatment of all kinds of flow phenomena encountered in centrifugal pumps including the complex interactions of fluid flow with vibrations and wear of materials. The scope includes all aspects of hydraulic design, 3D-flow phenomena and partloadBrand: Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg. Centrifugal pumps for solids control. An oilfield solids control system needs many centrifugal pumps to sit on or in mud tanks. The types of centrifugal pumps used are sand pumps, submersible slurry pumps, shear pumps, and charging pumps. They are defined for their different functions, but their working principle is the same.
