Some of our leading engineering capabilities have been listed below

DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT OF PUMPS, HYDRO TURBINES, VALVES AND SPECIAL PUMPS

(Hydraulic/Mechanical)

  • Design of centrifugal/vertical turbine pumps in compliance with national and International standards using advanced CAD tools like computational fluid dynamics (CFD), Inverse Design and finite element analysis (FEA).
  • Improvement of pump efficiency by optimising the impeller blades using Inverse Design software
  • Low Life-cycle Cost (LLC) pumps are designed and developed to save huge operational and maintenance cost and for longer mean time between failure (MTBF)
  • Special pumps for nuclear applications like primary and secondary cycle and canned motor pumps
  • For power application, circulating water pumps, condensate extraction pumps are also designed and developed

Design of
Hydro Turbines

  • Design and engineering of hydro turbines, including Francis, Kaplan and Pelton with horizontal as well as vertical orientation
  • Design of Pump As Turbine (PAT) for micro hydro range from 5kW to 100 kW power
  • Design and development of cross flow turbine for micro hydro turbines

CFD Study of
Pumps, Turbines and Valves

  • Design verification using CFD analysis by improving the flow pattern and to predict pump efficiency, which is validated against experimental study.
  • NPSHR is also predicted for centrifugal pumps using CFD study.

MULTI-PHASE FLOW ANALYSIS

Prediction of cavitation of pumps and tracking of particle suspended in the liquid
Sump (pump intake) air entrainment and formation of silt can be predicted using CFD technique

CFD Sump Study

Sump is designed based on ANSI HIS standards and verified using CFD analysis to find if there are any vortex formations, air entrainment to reduce swirl angle at the pump inlet and overall optimisation of sump structure, thereby saving significant amount of time and cost. The results can be validated with experimental results.

Physical Sump Model Study

Physical study of scaled down model sump is carried out at our works to study if there is any vortex formation, swirl angle and flow optimization by modifying necessary changes in the intake structure

FE ANALYSIS

Static/Dynamic/Seismic/Shock/Fatigue/Thermal/Coupled-Field analysis of pumps, valves, hydro turbines and corresponding system components

SURGE ANALYSIS OF TRANSMISSION MAINS

The pump discharge mains are protected from the surge pressure by sudden stop of pump or during power failure. The system is analysed and protected using suitable surge protection devices like air vessel, surge tanks, air valves, etc. by identifying suitable locations in the discharge mains.
