The Latest Innovations and Industrial Applications of Sealless Pumps.By
- Robert Neumaier
The development of hermetic (sealless) pumps over the last half century are traced and recent design innovations are described. The current state of the technology is analyzed. The design, performance, and application of hermetic centrifugal pumps and rotary displacement pumps are studied.

Particularly helpful are the numberous photos and drawings of different pump designs. Hermetic Pumps should prove useful to chemical engineers who have to select, specify, and operate hemetic pumps. In addition, it provides a good deal of useful information on conventional centrifugal and rotary displacement pumps. (Chemical Engineering Progress)
