Hi, I am working in an irrigation project, and we have to design the pumping station (10 vertical turbine pumps and 1 in stdby. There are channels for water transportation from the river and we want to use the Hidraulic Institute Standards configuration for the sump with the same calculate values), so I will appreciate if anyone can give recommendation about pump station design (in this case water coming from rivers with vertical turbine pumps)(books, web pages with photos,articles will help). Right now I am working in the sump design and I am using "Hidraulic Institute Standards", "Sulzer Centrifugal Pump Handbook" and "Pumping Station Design" by Sanks. One of my main concerns is about using or not using separating walls, because I know that sometimes is worse to use them. Other concern is to know more about vortexes formation. These books recommends Model Tests of Intakes, does anyone have done something like this?, does this represents the real pumping station?. Finally if anyone knows about companies that have gate, check and butterfly valves ranging from 30" up to 60" or more. Thank you in advance

Manufacturing professionals are beginning to explore digital manufacturing technologies in their efforts to reduce cost and improve quality and efficiency of parts and processes. Additive manufacturing is one digital technology which is changing the way we think about the design and life-cycle of manufactured parts. Download Now
The adoption of 3D printing into major companiesâ€™ product development life cycles is a testament to the technologyâ€™s incredible benefits to consumers, designers, engineers and manufacturers. While traditional production methods have limitations in manufacturability, 3D printing provides unparalleled design freedom due to the additive method of building parts layer by layer. Download Now
