Real World Applications: Centrifugal pumps are used to do many things in the real-world including plumbing in houses and buildings of pumping sewage.
Exercise I: Pump Performance Curve Experiment GPM ( Q) Suction Pressure (P S ) (psig) Discharge Pressure (P D ) (psig) ∆ P = P D P S (psig) TDH (ft) 0.00 1.30 11.38 11.38 1.30 = 10.08 10.08 2.31 1 = 23.28 2.33 1.30 11.26 11.26 1.30 = 9.96 9.96 2.31 1 = 23.01 5.89 1.29 11.14 11.14 1.29 = 9.85 9.85 2.31 1 = 22.75 10.50 1.28 10.79 10.79 1.28 = 9.51 9.51 2.31 1 = 21.97 15.63 1.27 10.14 10.14 1.27 = 8.87 8.87 2.31 1 = 20.49 21.26 1.26 9.24 9.14 1.26 = 7.88 7.88 2.31 1 = 18.20 TDH = psig 2.31 SG SG = 1 psig = ∆P 0 5 10 15 20 25 0 2 4 6 8 10 12 Pump Performance Curve Gallon Per Minute (GPM) Q Pressure Diference ∆?
