The Impact of Balance Hole Radial Position of Centrifugal Pump on Axial Force and External Characteristics
In this paper, the method of balancing the axial force with balance hole is studied based on the combination of CFD and experimental research. The relationship between the radial position of balance hole and the effect of axial force and external characteristics of the pump is in-depth studied. Research shows that, there are certain laws for the effect of the balance hole location to the axial force and the external characteristics: the overall pressure of the balance chamber and the axial force decrease with the decrescence of the balance hole radial location, which could get good effect on balancing axial force. But the head and efficiency decreased.
