Water pump specifications and performance
The specifications of the water pump indicate the performance of the water pump,it's also the basis for pump selection and flow adjustment.
The liquid fills the pump casing, the impeller rotates at a high speed, and the liquid produces high speed under the action of centrifugal force. The high speed liquid passes through the gradually enlarged pump casing, and the dynamic pressure head is transformed into a static pressure head. Attention should be paid to prevent the occurrence of cavitation and gas binding.
The flow range of the centrifugal pump is wide, and the flow rate and pressure are stable and there is no fluctuation.
The centrifugal pump has a high number of revolutions and can be directly connected with the electric motor and the steam turbine, the transmission mechanism is simple and compact.
The operation is convenient and reliable, adjustment and maintenance are easy, and it is easy to realize automation and remote operation.
Compared with the reciprocating pump of the same index, centrifugal pump has simple and compact structure, small size, light weight, fewer parts, convenient manufacture, low cost, and small floor space, so the pump cost and repair cost are lower.
Centrifugal pumps have the following main disadvantages
Under normal circumstances, before starting the centrifugal pump, user need to fill the pump or use a vacuum pump to extract the air from the pump. Although the self-priming centrifugal pump does not need to be primed before running, there are still limitations in its current use.
The viscosity of the liquid has a greater impact on the performance of the pump. When the viscosity of the liquid increases, the flow rate, head, suction and efficiency of the pump will be significantly reduced.
The application of centrifugal pumps under the condition of small flow rate and high head is subject to certain restrictions. Because the flow passage of the pump body of the small flow rate centrifugal pump is very narrow, it is difficult to manufacture, and the efficiency is lower.
