However, a more common unit of measure is centistokes (cSt). G. G. 2469 = = = Absolute Viscosity Centipoise Centipoise Centistokes Centistokes Centistokes * For centistokes greater than 50. 3 Vapor pressure The vapor pressure of a liquid, pure or mixed, is defined as the pressure exerted by those molecules that escape from the liquid to form a separate vapor phase above the liquid. If a quantity of liquid is placed in an evacuated, closed container, the volume of which is slightly larger than that of the liquid, most of the container is filled with the liquid.

Q vs NPSH-r: Capacity vs Net Positive Suction Head – required. 1 Flow rate (Q) vs differential head (H ) curve The Q vs H curve is a continuously drooping curve from shut-off (no flow) condition to BEP. API recommends that the curve from BEP to shut-off should rise by at least 10% for single-stage, single pump operation. Any pump model can be assembled with trimmed impellers (usually not smaller than 20% of the maximum possible diameter). The Q vs H curve of trimmed impellers in the operating range are parallel and below the Q vs H curve of the maximum diameter impeller.

This is achieved by first reducing the pressure in front of the packings. 22). This auxiliary impeller is also called as a repeller. As the repeller rotates with a shaft, it throws the liquid outwards thus reducing the pressure in front of the packings. The pressure generated by the repeller is dependent on the length of the blades and its clearance with the casing. Another common design is to cast back vanes of the main impeller itself. The back vanes help reduce the pressure acting on the packing.
