Design and Optimization of a Mixed-Flow Diffuser Pump | 15th Feb

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Advanced Design Technology to host a Webinar on “Parametric Design and Optimization of a High Specific Speed Mixed-Flow Diffuser Pump for High Hydrodynamic and Suction Performance”, where you'll learn how to overcome the design challenges of these pumps. LONDON (UK) - Advanced Design Technology, Ltd. (ADT), a leading turbomachinery design software company, will be hosting an online webinar on the design and optimization of mixed-flow pumps.

The webinar will take place on Thursday 15th Feb, 2023 at 9am and 5pm (GMT).

During the webinar, you can discover the advantages of inverse design-based blade parameterization for the optimization of mixed-flow pumps as well as solve the challenges associated with the design of these high specific speed pumps.

High specific speed mixed-flow pumps are widely used at drainage pumping stations, power plants and in water-jet applications. Their design is considerably challenging since it is generally necessary to satisfy multiple performance objectives that are in relative trade-off. Furthermore, in addition to operating outside of the best efficiency region, the flow often approaches the impeller eye with a low value of static pressure, leading the pump to operate under cavitating conditions.

In this webinar, we demonstrate how pump designers can exploit their knowledge of hydrodynamics to directly address specific flow phenomena in mixed-flow diffuser pumps using the 3D inverse design approach. The design will be carried out in a parametric way where an initial pump configuration is generated first. Then, using the initial design as a baseline, the effect of five impeller design parameters will be investigated in a systematic way. Finally, the study will be used to determine the different, sometimes opposite, design settings which are required to maximize the suction performance and the hydrodynamic efficiency of the pump.

"ADT has been instrumental in assisting turbomachinery firms in designing more effective turbomachines, resulting in a significant decrease in CO2 emissions over the past two decades", said Professor Mehrdad Zangeneh, Director at ADT. However, it is now evident that there is a pressing need for immediate action to further reduce and eliminate carbon emissions into the atmosphere in order to avoid irreversible damage to the environment.
