Centrifugal Pumps: Design and Application incorporates subjects such as nonmetallic pump applications, mechanical seals, vibration and noise in centrifugal pumps, rotor dynamics, and the knowledge necessary to extend pump life during installation and operation.
This volume comprises 21 chapters, with an introductory chapter discussing system analysis for pump selection. The next chapters then go on to discuss specific speed and modeling laws; impeller design; general pump design; volute design; design of multi-stage casing; double-suction pumps and side-suction design; NPSH; vertical pumps; pipeline pumps; high-speed pumps; double-case pumps; slurry pumps; hydraulic power recovery turbines; chemical pumps; shaft design and axial thrust; mechanical seals; vibration and noise in pumps; alignment; rolling element bearings and lubrication; and mechanical seal reliability.
This book will be of interest to practitioners in the fields of mechanical engineering and machinery management.
