Centrifugal pump
Centrifugal pump Pump head = h (height to which the pump will lift a fluid at a given flow rate. h =P 4 -P 1 / g = 2 (r 3 2 -r 2 2 )/g + (V 1 2 -V 2 2 )/2g – ( F 1-2 + F 3-4 )/g Course outcome- Understand the performance of a centrifugal pump, including the concept of net positive suction head (NPSH), and is able to apply that knowledge to design and predict the performance of a pump in a piping system.

Example problem- A centrifugal pump has inlet pipe size 2 in, outlet pipe size 1.5 in, impeller diameter (i.d) 2 in and outer diameter (o.d) of 6.75 in and rotational velocity of 1800 rpm. What is the pump head for a volumetric flow rate of 100 gpm?
Net-Positive-Suction-Head (NHSH) The height or elevation that must be large enough to prevent boiling of a fluid. NPSH (available) = NPSH a = The absolute pressure at the suction port of the pump NPSH (required) = NPSH R = Minimum pressure required at the suction port of the pump

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
