What is radial flow pump?

What is radial flow pump?

Radial flow pumps are centrifugal pumps, at which the fluid handled leaves the impeller in a radial direction. The radial outward movement of the flow (see Flow rate in the impeller causes higher centrifugal forces, which translate into higher discharge pressures but typically smaller volume flow rates.

What are the 3 types of centrifugal pumps?

Single-stage, Two-stage, or Multi-stage.

What are the types of flow in pump?

There are three basic types of pumps: positive-displacement, centrifugal and axial-flow pumps. In centrifugal pumps the direction of flow of the fluid changes by ninety degrees as it flows over an impeller, while in axial flow pumps the direction of flow is unchanged.

How many types of pumping are there?

Positive Displacement Pumps

Reciprocating Pump Bladder Diaphragm Peristaltic Piston / plunger
Rotary Pump Gear Screw Progressing cavity Rotary lobe Rotary vane

What are the 2 main classification of pumps?

Pumps are divided into 2 major categories: Dynamic and Positive Displacement (aka Displacement).

What is radial flow and axial flow?

Axial Flow: The axial flow impeller discharges fluid along the shaft axis. For this reason an axial flow pump is by definition not “centrifugal” in its pumping action. Radial Flow: The radial flow impeller discharges the fluid radially at 90° to the shaft axis.

What are the 2 classification of pumps?

What are the two main types of water pumps?

There are two basic types of water pumps: centrifugal and positive displacement. Both types are designed to move water from one place to another continuously. A centrifugal water pump uses a rotating impeller to move water into the pump and pressurize the discharge flow.

Which pump is used for high pressure?

The high-pressure pump is a centrifugal pump with a head of between 200 and 1200 m, which is used, for example, in pressure booster systems, Low-pressure, medium-pressure or super-pressure pumps are used for other areas of application.

What is the difference between axial flow and radial flow?

Axial flow impellers cause the tank fluid to flow parallel to the impeller’s axis of rotation while radial flow impellers cause the tank fluid to flow perpendicular to the impeller’s axis of rotation. The following figure shows the different flow patterns achieved by using either a radial or axial flow impeller.
