Larry Bachus and Angel Custodio met each other in the early 1990s in
Puerto Rico. Larry was working on a pump and seal conversion in a
pharmaceutical chemical plant and Angel was installing a computerized
preventive maintenance system in the same plant. They had passed each
other in the administrative offices at the plant and one day the
maintenance engineer introduced them and suggested they work
together. They became fast friends and have worked together on
numerous projects over the years since, including this book....
In the Department of Structural and Fluid Mechanics
we are happy to present the first English edition of the
book: ’The Centrifugal Pump’. We have written the book
because we want to share our knowledge of pump hydraulics,
pump design and the basic pump terms which
we use in our daily work.
’The Centrifugal Pump’ is primarily meant as an internal
book and is aimed at technicians who work with
development and construction of pump components.
