Performance parameters of centrifugal pumps


Recommended Posts

The main performance parameters of the centrifugal pump as follows:

1.    Flow

Flow is also called displacement, the amount of water raised. It is the amount of liquid discharged by the pump in the unit time, has two representation , one is volume units and the other is weight units.

Q expression for volume flow, the unit is m³/s, m³/h, and L/s.

G expression for weight flow, the unit is T/h, Kg/s.

The relationship between the weight flow and volume flow is G=γ Q γ=liquid weight, kg/m³

2.    Head

Unit weight liquid through the pump after the energy is commonly known as the lift, also known as the total head or full lift. Expressed in H, the unit is m

For high-pressure pumps, sometimes also approximately with the pump outlet and the inlet pressure difference (P2-P1 ) to indicate the head size, at this time the lift of the expression is H=104(P2-P1)/γ

P2 outlet pressure of pump (kg/cm2)

P1 inlet pressure of the pump(kg/cm2)

3.    Speed

The rotational speed of the centrifugal pump refers to the number of revolutions per minute of the shaft, expressed in n, the unit is r/min.

4.    Power

The power of the centrifugal pump refers to the axial power of the centrifugal pump, that is, the original motive to the pump power, expressed in N, the unit is kw.

The product of the pump's weight flow and head is called the effective power of the pump. Expressed in Ne, the unit is kg*m/s. The expression is

                Ne=GH=γQH

 The difference between shaft power N and effective power Ne of centrifugal pump is the loss of power in the pump, its size can be measured by efficiency. The efficiency of the centrifugal pump is the ratio between the effective power Ne and the shaft power N, expressed in η,

               η=Ne/N

5.    Specific speed

      Christian Eckes took the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series points lead on Friday night with a stout fourth-place performance at Texas Motor Speedway. The driver of the No. 19 Gates Hydraulics Chevrolet Silverado RST captured his third top-five finish of the season and scored 50 points on the night, the second-most of all drivers in the field. Eckes led 31 laps, the only driver to have led laps in each race this season, and tallied his third top-five finish in the last four events.
      For the second-consecutive weekend, Eckes qualified on the front row and was a mainstay in the top five for the entire event. He settled into second at the drop of the green flag and challenged for the lead near the midway point of the opening stage. The first lead change of the night occurred when Eckes powered his Gates Hydraulics Chevy to the lead on lap 17 and paced the field for 21 circuits. He surrendered the lead on lap 38 and collected nine points at the end of Stage 1 on lap 40 while running second.
      Crew chief Charles Denike brought Eckes to pit road under the stage caution for four fresh tires, fuel, and a minor air pressure adjustment to tighten his balance. Eckes restarted second on lap 47 and maintained position inside the top five for the ensuing 35-lap run. An improved handling balance and consistent lap times netted Eckes another eight points at the end of Stage 2 on lap 80 by running in third position.
      Eckes was armed with another batch of fresh tires, fuel, and minor adjustments to fine-tune the handling during the second stage caution. After restarting third on lap 87, he waged war for the runner-up position and gained control of it by lap 100. He ran there until a cycle of green flag pit stops began on lap 119. Eckes made his final stop on lap 129 just before a caution waved. He was able to stay on the lead lap in fourth position and in contention for the victory. He made another fierce run for the race lead on a lap 150 and led until lap 158. During the final 10 laps, Eckes fought valiantly for one final charge at the lead but took the checkered flag in fourth position for his third top-five and sixth top-10 of the season.
      “Not a bad points night,” Eckes said. “I thought we’d have a pretty good shot at the win there, but just went down into Turns 1 and 2 and got way too tight and slid up the racetrack. It is what it is. I’m proud of the No. 19 Gates Hydraulics team for making the improvements that they did. Our mile-and-a-half stuff has definitely shown a little bit of an improvement. We still have a little bit of a ways to go, but we’ll see how it goes.”
      Start / Finish: 2 / 4
      Points Standing / Total: 1 / 287 pts. (+2)
      Next Race: Saturday, May 4, Kansas Speedway
      How to Watch or Listen: 8:00 p.m. ET on FS1, MRN or SiriusXM

      The water pump is a vehicle component that needs no introduction. For most vehicle owners, however, they don’t think about it until something goes wrong.
      As the only moving part of the cooling system, the water pump plays a vital role in keeping the vehicle running optimally in all weather conditions. Water pumps usually last a long time – 100,000 miles or more on average. When a water pump fails, though, the results can be catastrophic for the engine.
      Let’s talk about some common causes of premature water-pump failure.
      Coolant Contamination
      Coolant can become contaminated with dirt, debris or other substances that can wear down the water pump’s internal components, including the seals and bearings. This contamination can accelerate wear and lead to early failure.
      Cavitation
      This phenomenon occurs when vapor bubbles form in the coolant near the pump’s impeller blades, causing shock waves when they collapse. Over time, this can lead to pitting and erosion of the impeller blades, reducing the pump’s effectiveness.
      Improper Coolant Mixture
      Many water-pump failures are caused by factors other than a faulty pump. Using the wrong coolant mixture or water-to-coolant ratio can cause corrosion and deposits within the pump, reducing its efficiency and lifespan. Additionally, incorrect coolant types can chemically react with pump components, causing deterioration.
      Bearing Failure
      Bearings within the water pump allow the impeller to spin smoothly. Over time, these bearings can wear out or fail – often due to tension from a misaligned or overtightened belt – leading to noise, leaks or a seized pump.
      Thermal Stress and Fatigue
      Constant exposure to fluctuating temperatures can cause the metal components of the water pump to expand and contract, leading to stress fractures and eventual failure.
      Leakage and Seal Failure
      The water pump’s seals are prone to wear and degradation over time, leading to coolant leaks. Such leaks not only reduce the efficiency of the cooling system but also can cause overheating and further damage to the water pump and surrounding components.
      Warning Signs
      Recognizing the early signs of water-pump failure can prevent more significant engine damage. Here are some key indicators:
      1. Coolant leak – One of the most straightforward signs is a coolant leak at the front of the vehicle, typically near the center. This can indicate a failed seal or gasket in the
      water pump.
      2. Overheating engine – If the water pump isn’t circulating coolant effectively, the engine temperature can rise, leading to overheating. Persistent overheating, especially under normal driving conditions, should prompt an inspection of the cooling system, including the water pump.
      3. Strange noises – A failing water pump can produce a variety of noises, such as whining or grinding, often due to bearing failure or an impeller rubbing against the pump housing.
      4. Steam from radiator – Seeing steam emanate from the radiator is a clear sign of overheating, which could be due to a malfunctioning water pump.
      5. Corrosion and deposit build-up – Visible corrosion or significant scaling on the water pump or surrounding components can indicate a failing pump, often due to improper coolant use or leaks that allow air into the system.
      While the service life of most OE water pumps should be 100,000 miles or longer, a cheap replacement pump might not make it 30,000 miles before it starts to leak. To keep your customers happy, it’s always a good idea to recommend a well-built, high-quality water pump from a trusted manufacturer. And when they’re replacing the water pump, you’ll want to check if they need any gaskets, hoses, coolant, belts or a thermostat. 
      Also, if your customer who just purchased a new aftermarket water pump from you doesn’t flush the system and use new coolant when they install the new pump, there’s a good chance you’ll be hearing from them sooner rather than later with a warranty return. You should encourage your customers to follow the vehicle’s recommended flush-and-fill schedule, and to always use the coolant specified by the vehicle manufacturer. Most coolant suppliers do not recommend intermixing different brands or types of coolant in the same cooling system, due to the risk of coolant-gelling, corrosion or abrasion of water-pump seals.
