Impact of the Volute
The performance of the volute has a significant impact on the overall stage performance. For simple stages with an impeller and volute combination, the volute can represent the dominant portion of lost efficiency, particularly at off-design conditions or if the volute is not sized correctly. Leaving the volute's design as an afterthought can have a detrimental impact on the overall design. Many design, layout and analysis options are now available for improving the process.
