When repairing centrifugal and axial flow pumps, axial thrust is a concern. An understanding of the causes and the mitigating provisions of various pump designs will help repair technicians to ensure those provisions work properly. Various impeller designs, end suction and vertical turbine pumps will be a primary focus. 

Primary topics are: 

  • Factors affecting the amount of axial thrust developed by an impeller 
  • Review of some common mitigation designs 
  • What repair technicians need to look for on various pump designs 

The mechanical pump components can be repaired without understanding the hydraulics of how a pump works. But it’s easy to miss important features that can affect pump performance and reliability.  

This session will be helpful for pump repair technicians and supervisor and engineers associated with pump repair.
