Evaluation of centrifugal pump performance derating procedures for non-Newtonian slurries
(Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2006)
The performance of a centrifugal pump is altered for slurry or viscous materials (Stepanoff, 1969) and this needs to be accounted for. Usually, the suitable selection and evaluation of centrifugal pumps is based only on ...
Centrifugal pump derating non-Newtonian slurries: analysis of the viscosity to be used in the hydraulic institute method
(Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2013)
Centrifugal pumps are the most commonly used pumps in slurry transport systems. The design of pumping systems dealing with liquids more viscous than water requires a reliable method of pump performance prediction for the ...
