Centrifugal pumps are one of the most common types used in industry. It’s a device that pumps mud for solids control equipment. Figure 1 shows a generic, single stage centrifugal pump and Figure 2 illustrates a multistage centrifugal pump.Continue reading “Centrifugal PUMPs”
Centrifugal pumps are definitely one of the most common machines in the industrial landscape. Centrifugal pump can be used as feed pump,
The purpose of this article is to present some guidelines and simplified techniques to size pumps and piping typically used in mud systems. If unusual circumstances exist such as unusually long or complicated pipe runs or if very heavy or viscous drilling muds are used, a qualified engineer should analyze the system in detail and calculate an exact solution.
A carefully planned and carried out maintenance program extends centrifugal pump life, maintains high pump dependability and rated performance, and reduces overall operating costs. The three primary areas of pump care are general effects of erosion and specific problems of packing and bearings.
