convert it from m^3/s), suction pressure transducer readings Ps, discharge pressure transducer readings Pd.5.Further close pump incrementally and continue entering data into LabVIEW interface.6.Write down above data into the following table. Calculate pressure difference, obtain total dynamic head and draw the pump performance curve.ResultsThe results are enclosed in lab handouts as well as in pages below:Conclusions/SummaryThe lab helped students to better understand the operation of centrifugal pumps and the many measurements and indicators of their suitability and performance. Students also learned the primary applications of centrifugal pumps and what limitations they may encounter.Real World ApplicationsCentrifugal pumps are the most used pump in society today. Liquid properties may heavily affect the efficiency of operation in centrifugal pumps but for most fluid transfer applications or applications
involving a low viscosity liquid, centrifugal pumps provide the necessary flowrate at the highest level of efficiency.Dataϴ(degrees)GPM (Q)Suction Pressure (PS)Discharge Pressure (PD)?P = PD- PSTDH (h)150.0062.2755.403.125500 ft302.5102.2756.203.925450 ft458.2602.2756.484.155425 ft6015.4402.2756.554.275375 ft7523.3002.2756.754.475275 ft9025.0002.2757.254.495250 ftPost Lab Questions1.For Positive Displacement Pumps Flow rate does not depend on pressure or head as much as other pumps. Flowrate’s correlation to RPM is much stronger.Centrifugal Pump: The flow rate of the pump is variable depending on the pressure and head. 2.A) CentrifugalB) Positive Displacement3.Ethanol VP= 5.95 kPaMethanol VP= 11.9 kPaWater VP= 2.34 kPa
