CENTRIFUGAL PUMP

Objectives:

a) To determine the characteristics of a centrifugal pump including total head, power,

efficiency and NPSH versus flowrate.

b) To determine the size of a geometrically similar pump that would be needed to pump

against a total head of 100 feet of water at peak efficiency using the same RPM.

Introduction:

Centrifugal pumps are the most common type of fluid mover in the chemical industry. A

fundamental understanding of the operation and performance of a centrifugal pump is of primary

importance to any engineering student.

A centrifugal pump converts energy of a prime mover (an electric motor or turbine) first

into velocity or kinetic energy and then into pressure energy of a fluid that is being pumped.

The energy changes occur by virtue of two main parts of the pump, the impeller and the volute

or diffuser. The impeller is the rotating part that converts driver energy into the kinetic energy.

The volute or diffuser is the stationary part that converts the kinetic energy into pressure energy.

All of the forms of energy involved in a liquid flow system are expressed in terms of feet of

liquid i.e. head.

The process liquid enters the suction nozzle and then into the eye (center) of an impeller.

When the impeller rotates, it spins the liquid sitting in the cavities between the vanes outward

and provides centrifugal acceleration. As liquid leaves the eye of the impeller, a low-pressure

area is created causing more liquid to flow toward the inlet. Because the impeller blades are

curved, the fluid is pushed in a tangential and radial direction by the centrifugal force. This

force acting inside the pump is the same one that keeps water inside a bucket that is rotating at

the end of a string.

The key idea is that the energy created by the centrifugal force is kinetic energy. The

amount of energy given to the liquid is proportional to the velocity at the edge or vane tip of the

impeller. The faster the impeller revolves or the bigger the impeller is, then the higher will be

the velocity of the liquid at the vane tip and the greater the energy imparted to the liquid. This

kinetic energy of a liquid coming out of an impeller is harnessed by creating a resistance to the

flow. The first resistance is created by the pump volute (casing) that catches the liquid and

slows it down. In the discharge nozzle, the liquid further decelerates and its velocity is

converted to pressure according to Bernoullis principle.

Theory:

If we consider the inlet and discharge of the pump under test as the boundaries of a

control volume then we may apply Bernoulli's Theorem of continuity to the fluid within that

boundary (Armfield, 1980).

where H is the pump differential head (m) and g is gravitational acceleration 9.807 m/s2.

Hydraulic power:

The hydraulic power of the pump is the product of machine head and flow, thus hydraulic

Power Nh,

Nh = gQ Hwater W (2)

where Q is the flowrate (m3/s) and water is the density of water kg/ m3

No=T*n W (3)

n = dynamometer rotational speed rad/s

60

nm = n * 2 RPM (4)

2

n = nm * 60 rad/s (5)

2

No=T * nm* 60 W (6)

The power absorbed by the pump therefore, is the dynamometer output less transmission losses,

thus:

N p = No- NL W (7)

NL represents the transmission losses between the pump and the dynamometer motor and is the

power absorbed by bearing friction, air drag, etc. The value of the power

loss will vary between rigs and on the same rig will vary with motor speed.

Nh

= 100% (8)

No

The measurement of pump differential head is effected by means of the two Bourdon

type pressure gauges.

It should be noted that the suction and discharge pipes are of different nominal bores thus

generating a velocity head across the pump which must be accounted for when measuring the

differential head.

H = +[ ]+ Z m (9)

water g 2 g 2 g

where Ps is the pressure at the inlet of the pump; Pd is the pressure at the outlet of the pump; and

Z is the vertical difference between the inlet and outlet. Vs is the velocity at the inlet and Vd is

the velocity at discharge (m/s).

Pump Discharge

1. The basic method of measuring the pump discharge on the test rig is by means of the

volumetric measuring tank. The discharge is directed into the tank for a known period of time

and the rise in water level during that period noted, then:

Ad

Q= t m3/s (16)

where A = area of measuring tank, m2

d = change in water level in tan, m

t = time, s

2. Venturi:

The pump discharge may be measured by means of the perspex venturi tube after the tube

has been calibrated. The venturi is being used in conjunction with a Dwyer Differential Pressure

transmitter.

The venturi demonstrates the principle of Bernoulli's continuity equation, thus flowrate Q

is related to the difference in pressure across the Venturi meter,

2( P ) water

Q = CA2 m3/s (17)

1 4

where A2 is the cross-sectional area of the throat of the Venturi, C is the Venturi coefficient, and

is the ratio of throat diameter to inside pipe diameter (pump outlet pipe diameter for the case

being studied).

In the case of an actual venturi, small losses occur due to viscous shear and friction effects, thus

reducing the theoretical flow through the device into Equation (17). A calibration curve for a

particular venturi tube will therefore show curves of theoretical discharge, predicted by the

equation, and actual discharge determined by

volumetric measurement.

Apparatus:

The centrifugal pump used in this experiment is the Armfield R2-00. The pump

is of cast iron construction and is provided with an open impeller. On the pump cover plate

tappings are provided at various radii so that the increase in pressure across the impeller may be

determined. These tappings are brought to a manifold with valves for pressure sampling as

required.

The pump is driven by a trunnion mounted variable speed 1.6 kW DC motor. The pump

set is mounted on a substantial bed plate. The equipment includes a combined

transformer/rectifier and speed controller.

The rig includes the tanks necessary for carrying out performance testing. The main

reservoir is approximately 1.36m x 0.66 m x 0.53 m fabricated in G.R P. and fitted with a drain

valve. On this tank is mounted the volumetric measuring tank which incorporate a level indicator

and scale. A quick acting drain valve is provided together with an emergency overflow. A

manually operated diverter is included so that water discharged by the pump can be returned

either directly to the sump or to the measuring tank as required. To carry out flow measurement

it is necessary for a stop watch to be used. This system allows level measurements to be taken in

still water and, hence, increases the accuracy of flow measurement.

The pump suction pipe is fabricated in PVC with pressure tapping. The pump delivery

pipe work incorporates a gate type throttle valve. Pressure and suction electronic indicators are

supplied complete with small bore pipe work and valves to allow multiple pressure readings.

A perspex Venturi has been upgraded and now runs with pressure transmitters and

indicators. This Venturi is modeled on the requirements of B.S. 1042 Part 1- 1964 having a

nominal bore of 1.5" and a throat diameter of 1.28". The Venturi operates in conjunction with a

25 psi Dwyer differential transmitter and Omega DP32 indicator. This instrument allows pump

flows up to 60 GPM (5 L/sec.) to be determined, after the instrument has been calibrated.

A 50 psi Differential Pressure transmitter is also available. This instrument allows the

differential heads developed by the pump up to 30 ft to be determined. Tappings are provided on

the pump and the supply includes all necessary fittings and connecting flexible tube.

Specification:

Outlet pipe diameter 1.5"

Venturi throat diameter 1.28"

Impeller outside diameter 127 mm

Blade width 11.4 mm

Number of blades 6

Blade type Backward curving

Impeller type Open

Radius of strain gauge 1144.2 mm

Shaft Speed 0 - 3000 RPM

Rating 1.6 kW at 2900 RPM.

Motor type Variable speed

Electrical Supply 220V/single phase/50-60 Hz

Relationship between Torque and voltage for strain gauge (when using x 10

amplification):

Torque=1.5861*Volts*g*0.1442

Procedure:

Start UP Procedure

b) Turn on Main Power.

c) Turn on priming pump and slightly open discharge valve.

d) Adjust pump speed to approximately 15%.

e) Open suction side valve SLOWLY. Repeat as necessary.

f) Open discharge side valve SLOWLY.

g) Turn the Venturi Drain valve until line is drained of air.

h) Turn the Pressure Guage Drain(s) to Vent until the line is drained of air, and then

turn the valve to the right until suction lines are airless. Then turn valve to Suction so

the line is static.

b) Close suction side valve.

c) Reduce motor speed to 0 RPM using controller.

d) Switch motor off.

Experimental Procedure

a) Calibrate the venturi meter by making at least 8 runs from a low flowrate to a high

flowrate. The venturi meter is calibrated using the measuring tank and stopwatch.

b) At 8 or more discharge rates collect the data necessary to characterize the pump

including the pressures across the pump, venturi pressure drop, motor rotating speed and the

Torque Gauge Reading. The safety bar should always be inserted when force measurements

are not being made.

It is removed when making force measurements and the motor arm is SLOWLY

allowed to touch the strain gauge mechanism.

Report:

1) To determine various characteristics and parameters of a centrifugal pump. These

include graphs of total pump differential head, hydraulic power, brake horse power,

efficiency and Net positive suction power versus discharge flowrates.

2) To determine the size of a geometrically similar pump that would be needed to pump

against a total head of 100 feet of water at peak efficiency using the same RPM. What

flowrate is generated by the big pump at this condition? If energy costs 10.2 cents/kw-

hr, how much does it cost to operate the big pump each year?
