Elsevier, Jul 25, 2003 - Technology & Engineering - 264 pages
Pumps are commonly encountered in industry and are essential to the smooth running of many industrial complexes. Mechanical engineers entering industry often have little practical experience of pumps and their problems, and need to build up an understanding of the design, operation and appropriate use of pumps, plus how to diagnose faults and put them right. This book tackles all these aspects in a readable manner, drawing on the authors' long experience of lecturing and writing on centrifugal pumps for industrial audiences.

The liquid surface is above the pump centerline. In Fig. 2-10, Z\ is the static suction head. Static Suction Lift. When the liquid level in the suction vessel is below the centerline (or impeller eye) of the pump, the difference in elevation, in feet, between the liquid surface of the suction vessel and the centerline...
