    How does Centrifugal Pump work

          pump converts mechanical energy into pressure in a flowing liquid. A centrifugal pump does this by centrifugal action, in two steps. Refer to Figure. (1) A centrifugal pump has two major components: the internal impeller and the outer casing. The liquid enters the suction of the pump at A. It then flows to B and outward through the channels of the impeller marked C. As the liquid flows outward in the impeller, the impeller imparts a very high spinning or tangential velocity to the liquid. (2) The liquid then enters the volute of the pump, area D. Here the velocity energy is converted to pressure. Head  is the term used to describe the…
