A Review on Improvement of Efficiency of Centrifugal Pump by Altering Design Parameters

Authors(3) :-Parmar Karan, Vasava Himanshu, Parmar Amit

Nowadays, all kind of Dynamics machineries are being researched for more efficient work and optimum working. Centrifugal pumps are one of them. Centrifugal pumps are used for various applications like drainage and drinking water system, chemical Industries- Catalyst transfer, acid transfer and neutralizing, waste water/Chemicals- Industrial effluents, purifying water, cooing purpose in process industries- paper pulp, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals and in refrigerating systems etc. Centrifugal pumps can be single-stage or may be multistage pumps depends upon the requirement and number of impellers used in the pump. In case of Single stage pump consist one impeller while in multistage pumps the impellers are mounted in the series in . These pumps are very popular because of recent development of high speed electric motors, steam turbines etc. Hence, for more optimal performance the wide range of parameters are there to be work. This article deals with the improvement of efficiency of centrifugal pump through modification in Design parameters. The paper discusses the available material of performance improvement through various parameters and mainly focuses on the researches related to impeller as well as casing.
