ANSI/HI 20.3-2010


Rotodynamic (Centrifugal and Vertical) Pump Efficiency PredictionHydraulic Institute / 2010 / 26 pages ISBN: 1880952931

The Hydraulic Institute Pump Efficiency Prediction guideline is available in a separate, self-contained publication
This guideline presents a simple method that will help pump users predict normally attainable efficiency levels at the best efficiency point (BEP) for selected types of rotodynamic pumps when the rate of flow, total head per stage, net positive suction head available (NPSHA), and the service conditions are known
Graphs are used extensively to portray the relationship of pump efficiency versus different parameters
The following pump types are included in this guideline:1. Slurry, end suction2. Solids-handling, end suction pumps3. Submersible sewage, end suction4. Stock, end suction5. Horizontal multistage, axial split, segmented ring diffuser barrel6. ASME B73, API end suction, end suction- small7. End suction - large (greater than 0.3 m3/s (5000 gpm)8. API double suction9. Double suction, general service10. Vertical turbine, mixed-flow and propeller, single and multistage diffuser type

* Learn how surface roughness and internal pump clearances affect pump efficiency
* Understand the power consumption and efficiency loss created by bearings, lip seals, mechanical shaft seals, and shaft packing. Small, low horsepower pumps are particularly sensitive to these mechanical losses.
* The type of pumpage - viscosity, solids size and density, and slurries will have an influence on efficiency
* Special impeller designs, such as those intended to increase suction specific speed or provide a specific curve shape can reduce the attainable efficiency
* Thrust balance devices that are used to balance hydraulic thrust operate on the basis of differential pressure and bypass pump flow can reduce pump efficiency
* Multistage vertical turbine (diffuser) type pumps exhibit a difference between attainable bowl efficiency and attainable pump efficiency
