The design of Centrifugal Pumps has evolved over a considerable timescale, but the journey goes on. The market demand for yet higher efficiencies, lower costs, wider operating ranges, and improved reliabilities continues unabated.
Good Pump Design is far more complicated than many believe, and getting it right
A few examples of where such techniques have been applied with success will be presented, including large-scale Concrete Volute pumps, in-line canned motor pumps, general purpose multi-stage diffuser pumps, multi-phase oil pumps, high-speed Boiler Feedwater pumps, and ultra-high- speed nuclear safety-related pumps.
Each project requiring a different optimization approach covering efficiency, size, cavitation performance, and operating range.
"Carver Pump used the ADT software to speed development of impeller, diffuser and
return vane sets for expanding its family of RS multistage ring section pumps."
