What is Welding and Welding processes

Some welding processes resemble both soldering and brazing and that molten metal is applied to produce a joint between the two pieces. However, in welding, the added metal is, more often than not, of similar composition to the metals being joined, and the joined pieces are melted locally so differences …

Classification of Centrifugal Pump

Mixed Flow Centrifugal Pump

Classification of Centrifugal Pump Centrifugal pumps are classified in several ways. Pumps may be classified: • in terms of energy conversions (volute type and diffuser vane ring type); • in terms of fluid flow through the pump (radial, mixed flow and axial flow); • as either single stage or multistage …

What are Centrifugal pumps?

centrifugal pump

Introduction to Centrifugal pumps Centrifugal pumps are the most common type of pumps found in industrial applications. Centrifugal pumps enjoy widespread application partly due to their ability to operate over a wide range of flow rates and pump heads. The centrifugal pump, as the name implies, uses centrifugal force to transfer …
