Volute losses were established based on work performed by Vilim at Argonne National Laboratory [14].
It has been noticed that the difference in pressure between the impeller inlet and the volute outlet increases with increasing number of blades.
The 53 papers discuss such matters as modeling operating modes of centrifugal pumps, replaceable hydraulic parts in spiral volute pumps, solutions for increasing the bearing capacity of thrust bearings, the lubrication regimes of mechanical face seals, elastic bellows prepared by selective laser sintering, and damping self-excited pressure pulsations in a petro-diesel pipeline.
The PUMPELLER turbine integrates a propeller mixer in the center of a volute pump.
Served in a pea volute and a tangy balsamic glaze, the little parcels were tastefully presented and, on first bite, delicious.
From 2008, she embarked on a new series of large format digital images that give a sculptural aspect to her gestures, which were based on the Volute, the Arabesque and the Mystic Dance.
In order to explore the operation of the centrifugal pump it was necessary to model it using a CAD system; for this project it was used Solid Edge V20 where 3 basic parts were made: the volute, the impeller and a cylindrical region corresponding to the input of the working fluid (water) (Figure 1).
The updated HHLF-HO pump has extended the performance range of its current series (HHLF) by designing a larger impeller and matching volute which both can fit into existing housings.

where [theta] is the pitch angle of the volute and [DELTA][[theta].
The Vortex pump technique developed by Wemco is based on the principle of a whirlpool: a vortex is created by the rotating, recessed impeller, extended into the suction line, drawing the liquid solids into the pump and then quickly through the discharge, whilst minimising the fluid / solids contact with the impeller and volute.
Its high-value pumps include end suction volute pumps, process pumps, double suction pumps, vertical multi-stage pumps, axial flow propeller pumps, mixed flow impeller pumps, vertical mixed flow volute casing pumps and boiler circulating pumps.
