Early centrifugal pump design was heavily influenced by turbine technology during the mid to late 1800s.
Ensuring your sodium hypochlorite chemical feed system is properly set up and maintained is crucial to effective operation.
You have probably noticed that there are several camps out there when it comes to centrifugal pump applications involving variable frequency drives (VFDs). One group believes that every pump should have one, while another thinks that they should be banned altogether. And, of course, there is the middle ground that says it depends upon the pump and application. pump system optimization, pump efficiency
In the early days of adjustable frequency drive (AFD) technology, the typical application was in process control for manufacturing synthetic fiber, steel bars and aluminum foil. Because AFDs improved performance and lowered maintenance costs, they replaced motor generator sets and DC drives. When the energy crises occurred in the early 1970s, saving energy became a critical goal, and the use of AFDs quickly spreadpump efficiency, into large pump applications and eventually into HVAC fan systems. pump efficiency, pump system optimization
With the wide use of variable frequency drives in the pump industry and increasing unit size, it is becoming more difficult to design mechanical systems free from natural frequencies within operating speed range. If such an occurrence is allowed in the field, a resulting resonance condition threatens to significantly impact performance and longevity of the equipment.
Low efficiency, high radial loads, noise and vibration become a real problem when pumps operate to the left of the best efficiency point (BEP).
Artificial lift technology selection is highly dependent on the conditions of the wellbore and the specific application parameters of a given well. pump system optimization.

Progressive maintenance practices are vital to maximize pump life, minimize downtime and avoid costly repairs and lost production.
Computer simulations of pumps and compressors can now serve the same function as hardware testing. These simulations can be done in less time with less cost while providing engineering data of similar quality. Furthermore, computer modeling can be performed directly by the engineer doing the hardware design, thus providing a tight link between analysis and design optimization.
As the need to increase efficiency and meet lower emissions requirements puts pressure on gas turbine operators, they look for innovative solutions that do not necessitate large capital costs or high risks to make improvements. Some of the more reliable enhancements are water injection for nitrogen oxides (NOx) reduction, online and offline water wash programs to maintain compressor efficiency and fogging for power augmentation.
