Hydrodynamic design report intermediate size inducer pump for sodium operation

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

An inducer pump has been designed to fit within the existing housing of the FFTF Facility. The design has been shown to meet the specified requirements in every area where an analytical prediction of the performance can be made. The head-rise and efficiency of the pump have design margins so that the calculated values actually exceed requirements over the full range of operation. The suction performance of the design provides a very large margin at the operating NPSH value which is the major advantage of using the inducer pump. The suction performance margin at off-design is estimated to be adequate ... continued below

Description

An inducer pump has been designed to fit within the existing housing of the FFTF Facility. The design has been shown to meet the specified requirements in every area where an analytical prediction of the performance can be made. The head-rise and efficiency of the pump have design margins so that the calculated values actually exceed requirements over the full range of operation. The suction performance of the design provides a very large margin at the operating NPSH value which is the major advantage of using the inducer pump. The suction performance margin at off-design is estimated to be adequate for suction performance, but may not be as large as desired for life considerations. The design has incorporated features that provide for long life at the design point. These features have been established based on proven performance of commercial waterjet pumps designed by Rocketdyne.
