Hi Cheresources team,

 

I hope you all the doing well.

 

I want to calculate the the temp. rise in centrifugal pump when the pump is dead headed. I got the formula from the below link -

 

https://powderproces...ature_Rise.html

 

I used the formula to calculate the temp. rise below is the calculations steps -

 

Shut off BHP    5 hp
Fluid handled by pump    Ethanol
Fluid density    49.25 lb/ft³
Fluid specific heat    0.6 Btu/lb.°F
Boiling point of liquid    172 °F
Pump casing volume    2.5 ft³
Weight of the fluid inside casing    123 lb
Temperature rise    2.9 °F/min

 

Temp. rise per min is around 3 deg F, it seems quite high. I need your views on this value. Am I missing something here.

Waiting for your valuable suggestions.

 

Thank you,

Raj Shekhar Ghosh

In my experience, that seems reasonable.

Hi,

 

Can we know the reason for calculating the temperature rise?

 

are you calculating the minimum re-circulation flow or something else?

Hi Raj,

 

It's not so high and as latexman mentioned is reasonable...

Hi,

 

The pump is used here for transferring Ethanol, as it's a flammable liquid I wanted to know what is the temp. rise if we dead head the pump for longer time. If the temp. rise is much higher I will go for a minimum re-circulation line.

 

Thank You,

Raj Shekhar Ghosh

Please note that minimum re-circulation is required for two reason

 

1) To avoid cavitation related damage. That is what you are interested in

 

2) For Mechanical stability of a pump a min. flow is required.

 

I would suggest you to contact the pump vendor for minimum flow rather than you calculating the same..

 

I would also suggest you put a minimum flow line (with a RO or control valve based on the motor rating) considering the fluid is Ethanol
