Pumps Reference Guide 3rd edition by Gordon S. Bolegoh. Industrialization imposed an ever-increasing demand for moving liquids from one location to another far more practically than by gravity. In order to motivate the fluid to move through the pipes and channels, energy has to be imparted to the liquid. The energy, usually mechanical, provided by a prime mover is transferred to the liquid by a device called a pump. The Book describes the practical knowledge about all types of pumps used in industrial applications with figures.
