How viscosity affects centrifugal pumps
Last month, we studied the properties and effects of resistive, inductive and capacitive loads in an AC circuit.
As a follow up on my AC Motors series, I thought it would be a good idea to provide a short overview of work, power and torque as it applies to the AC motor.
I received many comments and suggestions on proper installation practices, following my article “Grouting: Pumps and Telephone Poles,” Pumps & Systems, July 2010).
When selecting a pump for variable speed operation, a number of conditions must be evaluated.
