MEMORANDUMTo: Bhaskar VajipeyajulaFrom: Jake OrlandoSubject: MMET 401 section 510 – Lab 4: Centrifugal Pump BasicsDate: February 12th,2020_____________________________________________________________________________________PurposeThe purpose of this memorandum is to show a better understanding of the design, function, and operation of centrifugal pumps, as well as determining the head/flowrate characteristics of a centrifugal pump running at a constant RPM. In this lab, students evaluated performance of centrifugal pumps as well as performance curves.Procedure1.Log into computer and open file “Pump_trainer_DAQ.vi” at desktop.2.Turn on the variable frequency drive, let centrifugal pump start pumping. Then click run at LabVIEW interface.3.Make sure the pump inlet and outlet valve are fully open. Record the data at LabVIEW interface when all the data are stable.4.Slightly close the pump outlet globe valve (for example, make it 15 degrees relative to the horizontal axis), record the data at the LabVIEW interface. Data include GPM (you will need to
