Troubleshooting Centrifugal Pumps and Their Systems by Ron Palgrave. The book is for those new to the use and abuse of centrifugal pumps. It is also for those whose involvement with pumps is so occasional, that they need a reminder of the basics. Modern centrifugal pumps are not complex machines. Usually, they consist of a few castings, moldings, or pressings that are pierced by a few wrought or turned components. Evidently, they are one of the ubiquitous machines, being comparable in numbers to the electric motor and the internal combustion engine.
