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)
1-Requires few spare parts
2- Has no seal in contact with the product
3- Can work at high temperatures (100 °C)
4-Few numbers of valves per volume unit
5-Collect the information from various resources and use the collected data to
formulate&solve the problem.
Centrifugal pump requires few spare parts.
Diaphragm pump has no seal in contact with product
Lobe pump have few numbers of valves per volume unit.
Gear pumps can work empty means without products.
