Reciprocating pump Mechanically device to exert a force to push the material causes liquids to move by trapping a fix amount by forcing the trapped volume by discharging in another pipe. Piston and cylinder 2. Centrifugal Pump Converts mechanical energy to hydraulic energy by centripetal force of the liquid. This is cause by a rotating impellor which increases the velocity of the fluid. The casing of the pump acts to convert the increase velocity to increase in pressure. Increasing pressure as well. Compressors Used pistons by a crank shaft to deliver gasses oat high pressure. Types of Compressors 1. Reciprocating compressor 2. Centrifugal compressors Tanks Storage tank container that holds liquids and sometimes gasses. Operate a little to no Pressure. Very distinguishable from pressure vessels. Normally located in a tank field in or near the plant. 1. 2. 3. 4. Conical top storag...
