Extremely High Suction Performance Pump Inducers

by Concepts NREC on Sep 1, 2016 9:30:00 AM

The path to better operation stability and robustness

High suction performance pump inducers are critical to important industrial and advanced aerospace applications where the required inlet pressure is near the vapor pressure of the liquid to be pumped. These include boiler feed pumps, liquefied natural gas (LNG) transfer pumps, aircraft fuel pumps and space vehicle propellant pumps. Improving the efficiency of moving natural gas from production sites to where it is used is an increasingly important application for high suction performance inducers. Over the past 17+ years, Concepts NREC has been researching ways of improving inducer design to advance inducer suction performance, operational range, stability, and structural robustness.
