In centrifugal pumps why diameter of delivery pipe is smaller than suction pipe????
Well, pumps deliver at higher pressure than they intake. The outlet piping velocity will be dependent on the outlet pipe area (due to continuity), not the other way around.... Centrifugal pumps deliver fluid at a higher velocity than they intake, ...
True, but some pumps directly increase the pressure of the flow. An example of this is pretty much any piston based pump - the outlet of the pump tends to be about the same velocity as the inlet, but at a significantly increased pressure (which of course can be traded for velocity easily enough). The pump does not inherently accelerate the flow, although it can be used to accelerate the flow if the pump is in conjunction with a nozzle. Centrifugal pumps accelerate the fluid significantly within the pump itself, so at the exit of the pumping mechanism, the flow is much faster than the inlet. You could indeed slow the flow down through a diffuser and then have an outlet that is the same size as the inlet, but the pump's mechanism inherently accelerates the flow. As a result, the outlet tends to be smaller than the inlet.Well, pumps deliver at higher pressure than they intake. The outlet piping velocity will be dependent on the outlet pipe area (due to continuity), not the other way around.
The reason inlet piping is usually larger diameter than outlet piping is to minimize pressure losses upstream of the pump, in order to ensure the pump has adequate net positive suction head (to minimize cavitation in the pump).
