Memo To: Michael Golla From: Tahia Rahman Section #: 512 Date: 9/23/2019 Re: Lab 4: Centrifugal Pump Basics Purpose: The objective of this lab is to understand centrifugal pumps and be able to convert psig to head in feet. Performance curves will also be measured to understand the performance of the pump. Both centrifugal pump and non-positive displacement pump will be looked at. Procedure: ** The software required was not available at the time, the instructor gave out the necessary data. LabView should be used to collect data from the pump. Make sure the valves at the inlet and outlet are fully open. Close the outlet valve slightly, in increments of 15 degrees and record the suction pressure and discharge pressure, do that about 5 times. Calculate the pressure difference. Results: Next Page. Conclusion/Recommendation: Pump performance is important to understand to make sure the pump is appropriate for the task at hand. If it cannot perform, then it will break much quicker.
