The hardened impeller
and suction cover materials provide maximum wear resistance for long service life.
They further calculated the values of velocity and pressure across different zones around the impellers
of the pumps.
Tony Price explained his company has conducted extensive accelerated wear tests on impellers
at its laboratory, and observed that grey iron and stainless steel wore at approximately the same rate; 2mm in 50-63 hours of accelerated testing.
Of this only 2-3 per cent of improvement would be as a result of changing the inter-coolers, the majority came from redesigning the impellers
Since the impeller
blades reside in an rotating frame, fluid particles in the boundary layer adjacent to their surfaces experience an outward centrifugal force, an effect which tends to result in thinner boundary layers compared to stationary, pressure-driven flow (see, for example, experimental results of Cobb and Saunders (1956) or theoretical analysis of Schlichting (1979)).
made from traditional neoprene materials, Globe impellers
are guaranteed to run-dry for up to 15 minutes," he added.

that are ultra-smooth to guarantee hydraulic and mechanical balance, and maximized seal and bearing life
Various types of impellers
are used in mechanically agitated vessels in order to fulfill different mixing requirements in industry.
Omanpumps, the leading pumps and pumping systems company, launched Grundfos Sewage pump with 'S' Tube impeller
at a Seminar held on 12th June at Grand Hyatt.
A various literature is available on detailed velocity fields in mixing tanks agitated by various impellers
The pumps are available with SuperVortex impellers
for applications with required low operating hours, dry matter content above 5 per cent, and a spherical free passage up to 100 mm, or with the S-tube impeller
for applications with required high operating hours, dry matter content up to 3 per cent, and a spherical free passage up to 160 mm.
