In this paper, a CFD software package is applied to the performance prediction of a 14-stage centrifugal pump with opposed impeller configuration. In this study, the fluid volumes of the complete multistage pump are simulated together. The CFD model includes not only all the main flow channels from inlet to discharge, but also all the secondary flow passages such as wearing ring leakage and seal flush. The CFD model and the simulation results will be presented and discussed in detail. The CFD prediction will be compared with available experiment data.
