Example text

Such a bearing arrangement is useful in higher horsepower and higher speed applications where ball radial bearings would be impractical due to speed, load, and lubrication limitations. Due to the location of the ball thrust bearing on the outboard end of the shaft, the shaft diameter under the ball thrust bearing can be relatively small since no torque is transmitted from this end of the shaft. e. pump shaft and impeller(s)) is taken up by the thrust bearing, which by design, may be located within the driver or normally at the head end within the pump casing.

For a pure liquid, this pressure depends only on the temperature. 50 Practical Centrifugal Pumps Following are some examples of vapor pressures for a few common liquids. 7 °C for octane. 5 mm Hg). 043 atm (33 mm Hg) at 20 °C. In a liquid solution, the component with the higher vapor pressure is called the light component (tendency to vaporize quicker), and that with the lower vapor pressure is called the heavy component. 4 Flow The first and most important point to consider is that centrifugal pumps are volumetric machines.

2. A friction head loss component: Hf in meters ‘m’. This head is proportional to the square of the flow rate – ‘Q’ in l/s. The friction component is the summation of losses that occur as the liquid flows through the pipes and various equipment like heat exchangers. Pump hydraulics 51 To account for the losses, the entire flow path from the suction vessel to the discharge vessel is considered. If this path has a large number of fittings, such as elbows (more bends), reducers, valves, and orifices, the losses are higher.
