What is the difference between an ordinary centrifugal pump and a fire fighting pump?

Not a lot. A fire fighting pump found on most fire engines is the centrifugal type. Other than the amount of water it may flow and the number of discharges it can supply,

What is the differences between positive displacement pump and centrifugal pump?

Pumps -- Centrifugal vs. Positive Displacemen Two Categories -- Kinetic (Centrifugal) and Positive Displacement There are two main categories of pumps - kinetic and positive

Difference between reciprocating centrifugal rotary compressor?

reciprocating compressor have the pistons which slide up and down and compress the gas centrifugal compressor has an rotary impeller which compressed the working fluid throu

If you closed the outlet valve of centrifugal pump not damage pump but why damage reciprocating pump.?

When you close the outlet valve of the centrifugal pump, you stop the flow out of the pump, which causes the measurable pressure in parts of the pump volute to go up. However

Difference between centrifugal compressor and reciprocating compressor?

Reciprocating and centrifugal pumps serve different purposes and operate with separate functions. Centrifugal pumps transport huge amounts of liquid at a time, but the level a
