Pumping Efficiency of Screw Agitators in a Tube

F. Rieger


Most information on pumping efficiency that is available in the literature is limited to the turbulent region (centrifugal pumps). The aim of this paper is to show the effect of the Reynolds number on the pumping efficiency of screw agitators for a wide range of Reynolds number values from creeping to the turbulent flow region. The dependence of pumping efficiency on Reynolds number extends our knowledge about the efficiency of classical impeller pumps restricted usually to the turbulent region.
