Jun 26, 2014 A centrifugal pump imparts energy on a liquid, and based on the system it is installed on, has flow and head characteristics The amount of pressure the pump is required to overcome dictates where the performance point will be on the curve and how much flow is produced
The flow rate is the effective volume flowing per unit of time through the discharge connection of a pump In order to optimize the pump design, the flow rate must be accurately determined The total head is the effective mechanical energy transferred by a pump to the fluid as a function of the weight force of the fluid
connection of the centrifugal pump, the resulting increase in speed is converted into delivery head In centrifugal pumps the delivery head H depends on the flow rate Q This relationship, also called pump performance, is illustrated by curves During a bench test, the pump is operated at constant speed and the values Q and H are
Aug 31, 2018 How to read a Centrifugal Compressor Performance Curve? Now we will various curves and point so check in the centrifugal compressor performance curve Consider a centrifugal compressor with Rated Flow rate 66000 kg/hr Suction Pressure 10 bar Discharge Pressure 65 bar Differential Pressure 55 bar Operating Point
We can predict the approximate head of any centrifugal pump by calculating the peripheral velocity of the impeller and substituting into the above formula A handy formula for peripheral velocity is: The above demonstrates why we must always think in terms of feet of liquid rather than pressure when working with centrifugal pumps
Flow is indicated on the x axis while pressure/head is indicated on the y axis In this example, if pumping against a head of 40 ft using an impeller size of 7 9, you could pump at a rate of 140 gallons per minute Typical centrifugal pumps will show an increased flow rate as head pressure decreases
May 03, 2018 How to read a Centrifugal Pump Performance Curve Now consider a centrifugal pump is required to pump water from one vessel to another vessel, the pump parameters are as follows Rated Flow = 40m3/hr Rated Head = 157 m Liquid Specific Gravity = 1 NPSH available = 4m 1 Pump Rated Flow: The point 1, represent the rated flow40m3/hrof the
Example Pump Affinity Laws Changing Pump Speed The pump speed is changed when the impeller size is constant The initial flow is 100 gpm, the initial head is 100 ft, the initial power is 5 bhp, the initial speed is 1750 rpm and the final speed 3500 rpm The final flow capacity can be calculated with 1a:
Determining water horsepower When work or head in foot pounds per pound is combined with the flow rate measured in gallons per minute GPM, the result is the conversion for horsepower This energy imparted to water by the pump is called water horsepower WHP
When selecting centrifugal pumps, the rated pump head must be equal to or greater than the total head of the system total dynamic head or TDH at the desired flow rate Selection Tip: Pump head in a centrifugal pump will be the same for all liquids if the shaft is spinning at the same speed The only difference between fluids is the amount of
In a system where there is flow, the total head is the difference between the discharge head and the suction head plus the friction head and this sum will be less than the shut off head The plot of head versus flow rate is known as the pumps performance curve see Figure 7 for an example of a pump performance curve
Since each pump generates a head H corresponding to a flow Q, when connected in series, the total head developed is Ht = H1 + H2, where H1, H2 are the heads developed by the pump in series at the common flow rate Q Pump in Parallel With pumps in parallel, the flow rates are additive with a common head
