Frequently asked questions

11. What is priming?

12. What happens to the pressure at the discharge of the pump when the flow increases, or when the discharge valve goes from a fully closed position to fully open?

13. What are the 2 major components of total head?

14. If you increase the total static head what will happen to the flow?

15. If you decrease the discharge static head, what will happen to the flow?

16. Why the Centrifugal Pump is called Hi

11. What is priming?

Pump casing must be filled with liquid before the pump is started, or the pump will not be able to function.
 If the pump casing becomes filled with vapors or gases, the pump impeller becomes gas-bound and incapable of pumping.


12. What happens to the pressure at the discharge of the pump when the flow increases, or when the discharge valve goes from a fully closed position to fully open?

It decreases.

13. What are the 2 major components of total head?

Static head and friction head.

 14. If you increase the total static head what will happen to the flow?

It will decrease.

16. Why the Centrifugal Pump is called High Discharge pump?

Centrifugal pump is a kinetic device. 

The centrifugal pump uses the centrifugal force to push out the fluid. So the liquid entering the pump receives kinetic energy from the rotating impeller. 

The centrifugal action of the impeller accelerates the liquid to a high velocity, transferring mechanical (rotational) energy to the liquid. So it discharges the liquid in high rate.
