Request PDF on ResearchGate | Effect of particle size, particle size distribution, specific gravity and solids concentration on centrifugal pumn performance | Centrifugal pumps are widely used for the transportation of slurries through pipelines.
In the present work, the focus is on qualitative study of erosion wear in centrifugal slurry pump casing for dilute slurry flow. For dilute slurries, the hybrid Eulerian-Lagrangian approach is most effective  in flow prediction. Zhong and Minemura  used Lagrangian–Eulerian approach for predicting slurry flow inside centrifugal pump casing.
Determine whether a centrifugal slurry pump or a positive displacement pump is a better choice for a particular application. Have a greater understanding of the more commonly available centrifugal and positive displacement pumps used for slurries.

• No restrictor on inlet of pump, inlet pressure slightly positive (0-1 psig) 2. High probability of cavitation: • 15 foot length of ½” tubing used as restrictor on inlet of pump (-24 in Hg or – 12 psig) • Slurry used: Cabot SS-12 – Slurry from the same drum was used in each test. • Levitronix BPS-3 pump was operated at 7000 rpm.
The large cross section of the holes in the spectacle plate means that with a delivery cylinder diameter of e.g. 200 mm (7.874 in) it is possible to pump high-density solids with a mean grain size of as much as 80 mm (3.150 in).
3-D numerical erosion wear analysis performed for lime slurry flow through centrifugal pump casing. • Erosion damage is the highest in the tongue and belly regions of the volute casing. • Head and efficiency ratios both decrease with an …
1. Centrifugal froth pump is suitable for transporting slurry with froth, especially for flotation processing. 2. Centrifugal froth pump can eliminate the froth or foam in the running slurry and work normally even if the feeding slurry is not enough. 3. The feeding suction in the tangent line can accelerate slurry transportation and eliminate part of the froth. 4.
A diverse range of horizontal slurry pumps designed for the toughest duties Weir Minerals horizontal pumps deliver exceptional performance The Warman® and Galigher® horizontal slurry pump range is one of the world’s most comprehensive range of centrifugal slurry pumps for use in mining, chemical and industrial applications.
The wear of centrifugal slurry pumps in mineral processing and hydrotransport can be quite severe, and is one of the major cost concerns for plant operators. Understanding the influence of slurry particle size on wear is essential to maximising the life of centrifugal pumps operating in mineral processing plants and for hydrotransport duties.
The new ANSI/HI centrifugal slurry pump standard by G.R. Addie*, A.S. Roudnev†, and A. Sellgren‡ Synopsis The Hydraulic Institute has completed the task of developing a new ANSI/HI standard 12.1-12.6 (2005) for rotodynamic (centrifugal) slurry pumps covering nomenclature, definitions, applications, and operation.
Bingham plastic model. Figure 3 shows the measured particle size distribution data for the kaolin slurry used for the tests. The dry kaolin solids density is 2.6 t/m3. The d90 and d50 particle sizes are 34.5 μm and 2.2 μm respectively. Test methodology The centrifugal pump performance tests are done as follow: 1.
The design of a horizontal centrifugal slurry pump is a balance of design considerations to best meet the requirements of a particular slurry duty. These requirements may include one or more of the following:The ability to pump high density abrasive slurries with adequate wear life. The ability to pass large diameter solids.
