Published on June 19, 2018

This article is continuation of the previous article on this same topic in my linkedin wherein a Video was shown demonstrating the Excel Calculation with a Picture of the impeller generated from the Excel for a quick check.

These are typical real time calculations done for the design of#lmpeller and Volute for pumps. After the design calculations the Pump was also prototyped, tested and launched.

1n the previous article the equations could not be published due to memory space issue. Hence the equations are presented here in the logical sequence in which design calculations are to be done.

Specific Speed

Flow Pumpen profile

+ Fo llow Pumps of the same Ns but of different si ze are considered to be geometrically simila r, one pump being a size-factor of

the other.

Spec ific speed Calculation :

The following formula is used to determ ine

Ns = N' Q•0 .51H• (S/4) Where a is the Volume flow rate at the Best Efficiency point H is the Head per stage at the same Best Efficiency Point at the Maximum impeller dia at the same speed N is the Impeller rotation speed

specific speed :

A s per the above formula , it is defined as the spee d in revolutions per minute at which a geometricall y s imil ar impe ller would operate if it were of such a size as to deliver one gallon per minute flow aga in st one-foot head .

T he understand ing o f th is definition is

should be thought of only as an index used to predict certain pump cha racteristics .

Specific speed as a measure of the shape or class of the impellers The specific speed determines the general s hape or c lass of the impellers . As the specific speed increases, the ratio of the impeller outlet diameter, D2, to the inlet or eye diameter, D 1, decreases. Th is ratio becomes 1.0 for a true axial f low impeller. Radia l flow impellers develop head principally through cen trifugal force . Radial impellers are generally low fl ow high head designs.

Pu mps of higher speci fic speeds develop head partly by centrifugal force and pa rtly by

specific speed indicates a pump design with head generation more by axial forces and less by centrifugal forces. An axial flow or propeller pump with a specific speed of 10,000 or greater generates its head exclusively through axial forces. Axial flow impellers are high flow low head designs.

Specific speed identifies the approximate acceptable ratio of the impeller eye diameter (01 ) to the impeller maximum diameter (02) in designing a good impeller.

Ns: 500

to 5000 ; 01 / 02 > 1.5 - radia l flow pump

• Ns: 5000 to 10000; 01 /02 < 1.5 - mixed flow pump Ns: 10000 to 15000; 01 / 02 = 1 - axial flow pump Specific speed is also used in designing a new pump by size-factoring a smaller pump of the same specific speed. The performance and construction of the smaller pump are used to predict the performance and model the construction of the new pump.

The number of blades can be taken between 6 to 8.

With this the slip factor can be calculated.

Pfleiderer 's correction for correcting the Hlh ·inf to H 1 h is done using CPwhich is calculated as following CP = 2. 'l'/ [Z .{1-(r1/r2) 2 }] Where 'I'= 1 to 1.2. [ 1+ sinl3 2 ] . (r1/r2) higher value is to be used for impeller without guide vanes .

Incidentally it may be noted that the Slip factor given by Stodola can be approximately related to Pfleiderer's coefficient as

µ= 1/(1 + CP) Typically for Z=7, 13 2 =27 , Cm2=3.36, U2=28.3 we get µ=0.78 whereas Cp=0 .33 and the RHS of above Eq comes to 0.75 o

The vane contraction factor is calculated as q, = S 1 / (S 1 -t / Sin . j3 1 )

This is the factor (q, > 1 ) by which the inlet passage width is to be increased to account for reduction in flow passage due to the vane width .
