An Investigation On Design And Performance Optimization Of Pump Impeller
An impeller is a main part of the pump. The pumps are widely used for power plant, steam power plants, sewage, oil refineries, chemical plants, hydraulic power service and agricultural sectors. Therefore it is necessary to find out the working conditions and design parameters that yield optimal output and maximum efficiency with lowest power consumption. This paper investigates the design and performance optimization of the pump impeller. An overview of impeller blade performance, blade thickness, blade angle, manufacturing methods and required power consumption are analyzed. This study shows Computational fluid dynamics analysis (CFD) being applied in design optimization of pump impeller. With the assistof CFD tool, the tedious flows can be expected
Keywords- Investigates, Impeller Blade Performance, Blade Thickness, Blade Angle, CFD Tool.
