Hydraulic Performance Analysis:

We employ cutting-edge techniques to analyze the hydraulic performance of our pumps, ensuring optimal efficiency and functionality.

Product Design and Development with Advanced CFD Techniques:

We create pump designs with incredible accuracy using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), predicting how fluids will move and optimizing performance before we even build a physical prototype.

Cavitation and Erosion Analysis:

In our research and development work, we closely study cavitation and erosion problems. We look for ways to stop damage and make our pumps last longer by analyzing these issues carefully.

Sump Model Analysis:

We study sump models to prevent swirling patterns and calculate swirl angles. This helps us design pumps that operate smoothly and efficiently without disruptive flow patterns. 

Vibration Analysis:

We carefully check for vibrations to reduce any shaking caused by critical frequencies that could lead to mechanical problems. This ensures our pumps run smoothly and steadily without any unexpected issues.

Fluid-Structure Interaction:

We explore the dynamic interplay between fluid forces and structural integrity, optimizing designs for resilience and longevity under diverse operational conditions.

Static Structure Analysis:

Through static structure analysis, we fortify pump components to withstand varying pressures and loads, ensuring structural integrity and longevity.
 

Reliable Solutions

Flowmore offers a variety of pumps to meet many of our customer applications and requirements. At Flowmore we can, if required, modify our pump designs to meet the requirements of each individual system. This enables the customer to meet their overall efficiency of pump systems for a specific application. Flowmore utilizes the present day state-of-art technique Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) in fluid engineering.

In order to develop a reliable machine for a highly demanding operation, the behaviour of the flow in the entire pump is predicted by this reliable technique. Design modifications ranging from change in impeller dimensions to varying the pump hydraulic passages at best efficiency point are done to match the varying customer needs.

Cavitation is the formation of Vapour bubbles in any flow that is subjected to an ambient pressure equal to less than the Vapour pressure of the liquid being pumped. Cavitation damage is the loss of material produced by the collapse of Vapour bubbles against the surfaces of the impeller or casing. Formation of these bubbles cannot occur if the NPSHA exceeds the NPSHR for cavitation inception. In Flowmore, cavitation analysis is performed on the centrifugal pumps to make sure the pump doesn’t fail due to cavitation against given NPSHR Values.

Pump’s performance is also based on the sump in which it is installed. A best sump is defined as one which is designed as per international standards. At Flowmore, Sump model study and analysis is performed to make sure the pump which will be working inside the sump works perfectly. Other than CFD, structural analysis is performed on the pump set and its individual components to ensure the structural stability of components. This is achieved by evaluating the metrics like total deformation, maximum stress generated, maximum strain, factor of safety, Fatigue cycles, mode shapes at different frequencies, critical speeds etc.
