Contributor: Carver Pump Vertical cantilever pumps are centrifugal pumps designed in a way where the impeller is “cantilevered” from the motor and baseplate (a cantilevered structure is one that is […]
Typical selection criteria for centrifugal pumps are their design data (flow rate or capacity Q, discharge head H, speed of rotation n and NPSH), the properties of the fluid pumped, […]
Check out this Tsurumi Pump step-by-step guide on how to change a cable on a Tsurumi HS series pump. A step-by-step video explanation on how to replace a damaged power cable.
Introduction Cavitation and net positive suction head (NPSH) issues are common detriments to effective pump operation that are often misunderstood. Entire plant systems can fail unexpectedly as a result of […]
INTRODUCTION Cavitation is a thermodynamically non-reversible process defined as the formation and subsequent collapse of vapor bubbles caused by the drop in pressure in the fluid domain, as illustrated in […]
Challenge A sugar mill was trying to seal heavy slurry (63% solids) in multiple centrifugal pumps. The pump packing in use lasted an average of only three weeks. The plant […]
This work presents the results of complex research of changes in the hydraulic, stress-strain state and dynamic characteristics of the double-entry single stage pump (specific speed nq=55) in the […]
Predictive analytics can help companies identify equipment problems before they happen, keeping productivity high and maintenance costs low.
Background The International Submarine Races (ISR) is a competition in which teams race “wet” submarines. A “wet” submarine is an internally flooded, fully enclosed, vehicle in which the pilot(s) must […]
By Chett Norton, C.E.T. and Sylvia Flegg, Triangle Fluid Controls Visually examine and clean flanges, bolts, nuts and washers and make sure to replace any defective components, if necessary. […]
Brushless DC electric (BLDC) motors have been in use for nearly 50 years, but have only recently been employed in smart actuation. Their adaptation is key to improving process control […]
