The fifth edition of the Pump Technical Handbook includes 4 new chapters – being:
Application & Selection of Positive Displacement Pumps
This chapter comprehensively discusses the operation, selection and application of the major types of positive displacement pumps supported by diagrams, drawings and pump curves and will give the reader more detailed knowledge of these pumps.
Efficient Operation of Pump Systems
In this chapter, the requirements that are needed to make a pumping system operate at its most efficient are discussed, is fully illustrated with the appropriate charts and is designed to give specifying engineers, system designers and system owners an overview of an efficient pump system.
Sewage Pumps Stations
This chapter discusses the basic requirements both from an engineering and occupational health point of view of the different types of Sewage Pump Stations allowing owners, operators and designers to understand the basics of sewage pump stations.
Centrifugal, rotary and reciprocating pump troubleshooting is covered in this chapter using lists of faults cross referenced to the possible causes. This will be useful to pump owners and operators in diagnosing why a pump is not working correctly form the symptoms it is displaying. As well as the new chapters the remainder of the book has been reviewed and upgraded to ensure that the Pump Technical Handbook meets today industry’s needs.
All chapters have some changes that include the modernisation of illustrations. A number of the chapters have had a more comprehensive upgrade as noted in the following. The chapter titled “Principles, Application & Selection of Positive Displacement Pumps” has been split in two with the original chapter becoming “Characteristics of Positive Displacement Pumps” and the remainder becoming the new and far more comprehensive “Application & Selection of Positive Displacement Pumps” as referred to above. The Slurry Pump chapter has been added to with an Introduction, more detail on slurry pump sealing and an expanded section on positive displacement slurry pumps The chapter on Pump Materials has been to reformatted and brought up to date with the very latest on pump material requirements. The Intake Design chapter has also been upgraded and includes the addition of a section on circular sumps for liquids with and without entrained solids, trench type intake design and suction manifold design.
The Handbook has been prepared by a team of experts from Australia’s leading pump manufacturers with the non-technical person in mind. However, the scope and thorough treatment given to the subject matter will also satisfy more educated pump users. As such, the “Australian Pump Technical Handbook” will be a valued addition to the libraries of all pump users.
