If you have a centrifugal pump problem, the odds are Mike Sondalini has included the solution in this very detailed e-book.
Mike goes through the problem-solving steps in detail with his own experiences and research. Although this book primarily focuses on the centrifugal pump, many of the solutions are applicable to well… pumps in general.
With over 50 sections, we can only list a few here. Some of the areas of discussion are flow, mechanical seal, bearings, rotor, cavitation, liquid density, couplings, vibration isolation, fan, metal corrosion, impeller, balancing, alignment and even the effects on electric motors.
