Troubleshooting Centrifugal Pumps and Their Systems, Second Edition, begins by discussing pump characteristics that can be reconfigured to suit changing conditions. Next, it provides guidance on when to withdraw a pump from service for repair and how it should be subsequently treated. It is an ideal resource for those who feel ill-equipped to analyze unsatisfactory pump system behavior, and is also a great reference for pump engineers, pump hydraulic designers, and graduate students who need systemic knowledge on centrifugal pumps and their systems.
