Sample text

Each end of each shaft has a support bearing for the unbalanced radial hydraulic loads. A few designs leave the bearings and timing gears operating in the liquid pumped. While this results in a significantly lower cost pump design, it defeats much of the value that twin-screw pumps bring to applications. The more common and better design keeps the timing gears and bearings external to the liquid pumped. They need not rely upon the lubricating qualities of the pumped liquid or its cleanliness. Four mechanical shaft seals keep these bearings and timing gears isolated and operating in a controlled environment.

The center screw, called a power rotor, incorporates a balancing piston at the discharge end of the screw thread (see Figure 33a). The area of the piston is made about equal to the area of the power rotor thread exposed to discharge pressure. Consequently, equal opposing forces produce zero net axial force due to discharge pressure, and place the power rotor in tension. The balance piston rotates within a close clearance stationary bushing, which may be hardened or hard coated to resist erosive wear.

Operators also noticed that other problems with the pump had started to crop up: higher vibrations, seal failures, and noise, emanating from somewhere near the suction end of a pump, which sounded like cavitation. The issue became to maintain 30 gpm flow, but in such a way that the pump would still operate at the BEP. This challenge is similar to the problem in Quiz #2. ) An engineering consultant has recommended to trim the impeller outside diameter (OD), claiming that the pump BEP would move in certain proportion to the impeller cut: flow would move in direct ratio with a cut, and head would change as a square of a cut, similar to the relationship of flow and head with speed.
