Answer to Question #199908 in General Chemistry for Sarah

Question #199908

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.
