As a chemical engineer you need to pump the products without affecting products properties.
Because the flow properties will affect the fluid properties of the products like density and
viscosity. Pumping without destroying product integrity is as important as the heat
exchanger that comes after the pump. The piston pumps can handle very delicate and
viscous food stuffs and can pump up to very high pressure without damaging the food
particles. It can also be applied very successfully in heavy duty applications for industries
other than the food industry.
Answer the following
Pump Can work empty (without product)
Requires few spare parts
Has no seal in contact with the product
Can work at high temperatures (100 °C)
Few numbers of valves per volume unit
Collect the information from various resources and use the collected data to
formulate&solve the problem.
There are three physical properties of fluids that are particularly important: density, viscosity, and surface tension. Each of these will be defined and viewed briefly in terms of molecular concepts, and their dimensions will be examined in terms of mass, length, and time (M, L, and T).
