Thermo-Fluid Lab Prof. Taha Aldoss 1 1 F5. Centrifugal Pump: Performance Curves 1. Objectives 2. To determine experimentally the performance curves of a centrifugal pump, i.e. H- Q, η -Q, and Power-Q. The above is repeated at two different speeds, and two settings of vanes angle. 3. To investigate visually the formation of cavitation due to off-design operation, the effects of diffuser vanes angle

Thermo-Fluid Lab Prof. Taha Aldoss 2 2 II. Experiment setup A volute centrifugal pump is mounted over a water tank. The suction line as well as the discharge pipe is immersed into the water tank. The centrifugal pump is fitted with a diffuser with rotated vanes . The discharge pipe is fitted with a throttling valve which is used to vary the flow rate of the pump. An orifice flow meter is used to measure flow rate. The pressure across the orifice meter is measured using Hg-manometer. A calibration curve is provided to read the flow rate versus the manometer differential pressure.

    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.
