Summary of this E-Book:
Chapter 1:Pump Fluid Basics
The two types of pumps are centrifugal pumps and positive displacement pumps. In this chapter we will talk about the differences between the two pump types.
“Centrifugal Pumps: • 86% of all pumps are Centrifugal Pumps: Made universally by many brands…”
“Positive Displacement Pumps: • Flow-creating device • Fixed volume of fluid delivered per rotation…”
Chapter 2: Fluid Hydraulics
Industrial pumps are used to pump countless types of materials from oils, fertilizers, fats, etc to their respective destinations. This chapter discusses the build up and break down points of pumping these materials.
“Specific Gravity: • Specific gravity is a dimensionless number. • The ratio of a fluid’s density to that of water…”
“Vapor Pressure is also known as the boiling point: this is different for different fluids • Vapor Pressure is the pressure below which liquid at a given temperature will become a gas: 212 degrees F at 14.7 psi at sea level for water…”
Chapter 3: Effects of Misapplied Applications
In this chapter we will explain shaft dynamics and the effects of misapplied applications to industrial pumps.
Chapter 4: Reading Pump Curves
When figuring out how to measure pump curves, you must first know how to find the suction, discharge and impeller diameter.
Chapter 5 – Hands-On Session
In this chapter, we provide the video content necessary to see these principles in action
Chapter 6 – Trouble-Shooting Pumps
Several things can go wrong when pumping fluids. In this chapter we’ll examine some of the scenarios that might need trouble-shooting and talk address why these problems are occurring.
