Centrifugal Pumps describes the whole range of the centrifugal pump (mixed flow and axial flow pumps are dealt with more briefly), with emphasis on the development of the boiler feed pump. Organized into 46 chapters, this book discusses the general hydrodynamic principles, performance, dimensions, type number, flow, and efficiency of centrifugal pumps. This text also explains the pumps performance; entry conditions and cavitation; speed and dimensions for a given duty; and losses. Some chapters further describe centrifugal pump mechanical design, installation, monitoring, and maintenance. The various types and applications of pumps in the light of the particular design features involved are addressed in other chapters. This book is authoritative, informative, and thought-provoking to an exceptional extent. It establishes a notable advance in the progress of the art of the designer and manufacturer of centrifugal pumps, to the material advantage of the user.
