Depending on whether the pump starts with the discharge valve open or closed, its starting torque (Tp) and hence its startup time will also vary. 6 RUNDOWN TIME FOR A CENTRIFUGAL P U M P ( D I S R E G A R D I N G TH E P R E S S U R E SU R G E ) When the driving unit is shut down or fails, the drive torque drops to zero. The following then holds good: ÀT p ¼ Je ðNmÞ T p ¼ runout torque ¼ pump starting torque ðNmÞ J ¼ mass moment of inertia for all revolving parts related to drive speed ðpump including liquidÞ p dn Á ¼ angular acceleration of drive shaft e ¼ dv=dt ¼ 30 dt   1 s2 From the above equations, the runout time is calculated as follows:   p Á J Dn1 Dn2 .

On diffuser pumps, only the impeller blades are cut (Fig. 17b), while on volute casing pumps, usually the impeller blades with the shrouds are turned down (Fig. 17a and e). With diffuser or double-entry pumps, it is often advisable to trim the impeller obliquely as in Fig. 17c or d, because such corrections usually yield a more stable curve. The bigger the correction is and the higher the specific speed, the more the pump efficiency suffers from adaptation. 17 Impeller corrections Bigger corrections increase pump NPSH in the overload range, because specific vane loading is raised by the reduced vane length, affecting velocity distribution at the impeller inlet.

Examples: – Harmonics of rotational frequency – Slip-dependent frequencies . Normal operation of reciprocating engines (diesel) . Excitation frequencies. Harmonics of rotational frequency. Some torsional excitation originates in speed increasing/reducing gears due to pitch circle runout. The magnitude of excitation depends on the quality of the gear. Excitation frequencies: the two rotational frequencies. Gear tooth mesh frequencies are of less importance. Torsional excitation from pump impellers: typically very small, provided the vane numbers of impeller and stator have been selected properly.
