PERFORMANCE CURVES Mathematically, if the discharge valve is throttled, its loss coefficient “k” changes (higher for a more closed valve). Inside the pump, however, there is one particular flow (BEP), where the hydraulic losses are minimal. Generally, at higher flows, the friction losses are predominant, and at lower flows the more significant components of losses are flow separation and vortices (see Figure 11).

The meridional area (as well as relative area) changes linearly since the diameter is decreased, but the width is not. , flow) of meridional velocity multiplied by the area, therefore changes as a square of the cut. This is what the plant engineer had observed. The reason for the consultant’s claim that flow is linear with the cut is that, usually, the impeller width also changes (it gets wider). This change compensates for the decrease in the diameter, with the resulting area staying approximately the same.

Discharge pressure is brought into the cup via internal passages within the pump or rotor itself. The lower view shows a hydrostatic pocket machined into the end face of the idler rotor. It too is fed with discharge pressure. The gap shown is exaggerated and is actually very near zero. For some contaminated liquid services, the hydrostatic end faces of the idler rotors are gas-nitride-hardened or manufactured from solid tungsten carbide, and shrink fitted to the inlet end of the idler rotors. When the cup design is used, the cup inside the diameter and shoulder area are normally gas–nitride hardened.
