    Abstract: Impeller blades configuration is directly affecting the performance of the pump. Using splitter blades are one of the techniques that used to improve hydraulic performance. These modifications in the blades design are greatly affecting the dynamic performance of the pump. Splitting the blade changes its center of mass and makes it out of alignment ... Show More
