Download E-books Die Kreiselpumpen für Flüssigkeiten und Gase: Wasserpumpen, Ventilatoren, Turbogebläse Turbokompressoren (German Edition) PDF

By Carl Pfleiderer

Pumpen sind Vorrichtungen zum Fordern von Flussigkeiten und Gasen. Ihre haufige Anwendung beruht darauf, daB Flussigkeiten sich in Rohrleitungen am wirtschaftlichsten fortbewegen lassen. In die be treffende Rohrleitung, die den Ausgangspunkt mit dem Bestimmungsort verbindet, wird die ortsfeste Pumpe eingeschaltet, damit sie auf die Flussigkeit die zu ihrer ]'ortbewegung notigen Krafte ausubt, namlich auf der einen Seite saugend, auf der anderen druckend wirkt. Sie ver ursacht dadurch eine Drucksteigerung in der Rohrleitung auf der Aus tritt. sseite der Pumpe (Druckstutzen) und eine Drucksenkung auf der Eintrittsseite in die Pumpe (Saugstutzen). Demnach muB als Zweck der Purnpe im weitesten Sinn, wenn guy ihre Wirkung getrennt von der Rohrleitung betrachtet, bezeichnet werden, flUssige oder gasforrnige Kor-per aus einern Raurn rnit niederer Spannung in einen Raurn rnit hOherer Spanmmg zu befordern. Hier liegt offen bar der umgekehrte Vorgang vor wie bei den Kraft maschinen, mit denen die Pump en auch hinsichtlich ihres Aufbaus weit gehende Ahnlichkeit besitzen. Wie dort unterscheidet guy auch hier zwei groBe Hauptgruppen, namlich: 1. Die Kolbenpurnpen als Umkehrung der (allerdings nicht mehr in Gebrauch befindlichen) Wassersaulenmaschinen bzw. der Kolben dampfmaschinen. Das Kennzeichen ist hier der im geschlossenen zylin drischen GefaB hin und her gehende Kolben, der die Pressungsenergie des Fordermittels durch statische Kriiftewirkung erzeugt. 2. Die Kreiselpurnpen als Umkehrung der Turbinen. Zu diesen beiden wichtigsten Ausfiihrungsformen gesellen sich einige weitere von untergeordneter Bedeutung, bei welchen Antriebsmaschine und Pumpe gewissermaBen vereinigt sind und welche deshalb bei den Kraftmaschinen keinen entsprechenden Vertreter haben, wie Strahl pumpen, Widder, Mammutpumpen usw.
