Review and state of the art of regenerative liquid ring pumps

Research output: Contribution in Book/Report/Proceedings - With ISBN/ISSNConference contribution/Paperpeer-review



To understand the complex flow mechanism of regenerative liquid ring (RLR) pumps, various methods spanning theoretical, experimental and computational modelling have been applied. This paper will review these methods and summarise the major findings of studies focused on the effects of blade geometry on pump performance. The review will show that future development of RLR pumps is dependent upon the improvement of computational modelling methods coupled with experimental testing. Progress in those fields will allow the verification of existing results and enable new research.
