Why Centrifugal Pump is not called as a Positive Displacement Type of Pump? | FLUID MECHANICS LAB VIVA

a.The centrifugal has varying flow depending on pressure or head, whereas the Positive Displacement pump has more or less constant flow regardless of pressure.

b.Likewise viscosity is constant for positive displacement pump where centrifugal pump have up and down value because the higher viscosity liquids fill the clearances of the pump causing a higher volumetric efficiency. When there is a viscosity change in supply there is also greater loss in the system. This means change in pump flow affected by the pressure change.

c.One more example is, positive displacement pump has more or less constant efficiency, where centrifugal pump has varying efficiency rate.
