PRACTICAL HYDRAULICS: PART III

THE HYDRAULICS OF PUMPS ARE DISCUSSED. ECONOMICAL SELECTION OF PUMP TYPES REQUIRES THAT ATTENTION BE GIVEN TO: (1) THE NORMAL PUMPING RATE, AND THE MINIMUM AND MAXIMUM RATE THAT THE PUMP WILL BE CALLED ON TO DELIVER, (2) THE TOTAL HEAD CAPACITY TO MEET FLOW REQUIREMENTS, (3) SUCTION HEAD, (4) PUMP CHARACTERISTICS, INCLUDING SPEED, NUMBER, POWER SOURCE, AND SPATIAL, ENVIRONMENTAL AND OTHER SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS, AND (5) THE NATURE OF THE LIQUID TO BE PUMPED. THE FOLLOWING TYPES OF PUMPS ARE DISCUSSED: ROTO-DYNAMIC, DISPLACEMENT, CENTRIFUGAL AND PROPELLER PUMPS. ABOUT 60 PERCENT OF ALL PUMPS ARE OF CENTRIFUGICAL DESIGN AND THE MAJORITY OF THESE ARE IN A HEAD AND CAPACITY RANGE THAT CAN BE MET BY STANDARDIZED PUMPS. FORMULAS ARE GIVEN FOR CALCULATING THE NET POSITIVE SUCTION HEAD, POWER REQUIREMENTS, SYSTEM HEAD CURVES AND SPECIFIC SPEED.
