Abstract

This spanish language paper presents the three-dimensional turbulent flow through the impeller passages and surroundings of a mixed-flow pump. The model has five impeller blades mounted on a conical hub and nine stator blades in a diffuser which brings the diagonally outward flow back to the axial direction. This pump was tested with air, giving a nominal flow-rate of 1.01 m3/s and 250 Pa at 1200 rpm.
