Abstract

Centrifugal pumps are widely used in many important industries such as power generation plants, chemical processes and petroleum refiners. The condition monitoring of centrifugal pumps is highly regarded by many researchers and users to minimize unexpected breakdowns. Impellers are the core parts of pumps but often appear early damages due to flow cavitation and erosion. This paper investigates a new approach to monitoring the conditions of impellers using surface vibration with advanced signal analysis. As overall vibration responses contain high level of broadband noises due to cavities and turbulences, noise reduction is critical to develop reliable and effective features. However, considering the modulation effect between rotating shaft and vane passing components, a modulation signal bispectrum (MSB) method is employed to extract these deterministic characteristics of modulations, which is different from previous researches in that broadband random sources are often used. Experimental results show that the diagnostic features developed by MSB allow impellers with inlet vane damages and exit vane faults to be identified under different operating conditions.
