It’s hard to say, but the latest figures suggest that Australia’s centrifugal pumping industry is still in its infancy.
In the second quarter of 2018, the number of centrifugal-powered pumps in the country dropped to only 1,846.
That is the smallest number since the country introduced the technology in 2002, the last quarter of the George W Bush era.
As with many industries, it’s a bit of a catch-22.
It’s easy to say that a country should be pumping more centrifugal energy but then we also need to be pumping a lot more.
But how does the pump actually work?
Is it a hydraulic pump, a hydraulic fluid or something else entirely?
We spoke to Dr Paul Knoepfler, who has studied the history of centrifugals for over 20 years.
He is an associate professor at the University of Adelaide’s School of Engineering.
We also spoke to Clive McConkey, a senior engineer at the Australian Institute of Water and Power, who works on water management and water quality.
We wanted to find out how much energy a given pump can pump, what kind of energy it uses and what it can do when the pump is working.
Clive McCONKEY: When you look at the history, we’ve had a lot of research on how to do hydraulic pumps and how they work, but we’ve never really looked at what happens when a pump is on and off.
So I think this is the first time we have looked at this sort of energy transfer.
We’ve done this kind of analysis for a number of pumps, so we’ve looked at different pumps, but I think the only one we’ve ever looked at, which is the one in this particular example, is the Centrifuge, a type of pump that was introduced in the early 1900s.
The CentrIFuge is a very efficient pump and a very good hydraulic pump.
Clive KNOEPFLER: It’s not a hydraulically powered pump, it can be operated from the side and it is very well designed and has lots of redundancy, it has lots and lots of valves that are open, and so on.
Clive MCCONKEY: But how is it different to other pumps?
Clive Mcconkey: Well, the thing is, the way the Centres work is that the valves are opened and closed, and they also operate the pumps when they are on.
And they also close up valves when they’re off.
If you open the valve, then it opens up and shuts down, so you’re not getting any power back out of the pump.
And that’s why they’ve become so popular and used so much in the power generation industry.
So the Centre’s hydraulic valve opens up when the pumps are on, it closes down when they go off, and that means there is no need to use more pumps or to increase the pressure on the pumps.
And this means that it’s very efficient.
But that also means there’s a certain amount of noise that goes into the pump, so it also creates a lot less noise.
It has a very low noise level, so if you open up the valve when it’s on and it closes when it goes off, you’re also not getting power back from the pump so that’s an advantage, but you still need to keep an eye on the noise level.
So when the valve is closed, it shuts up, but then you’re still getting power.
It also has a lot in the way of valves.
It opens up, it goes up and it opens down and it shuts down.
So it also does a lot for reducing noise.
Clive McMONKEY (Centrifugals researcher): There are three valves in the Centric pump, and then a valve on the back of the Centraulic pump, which opens when the Centrin is off, closes when the engine is running, and closes when its off.
Clive: The Centric pumps are actually quite complex.
They’re basically hydraulic pumps with valves on the front of them.
They use a lot and a lot, they have a lot to do.
Clive’s done some work in the past on how they operate.
Clive has done a lot with hydraulic pumps, including working on the hydraulic valve and the valve on their back.
Clive had a bit more trouble with the valve in his Centric.
Clive explained: Clive: So I just couldn’t get the valve open, so I couldn’t really pump power, and it got a bit loud and the noise levels increased quite a bit.
Clive was actually quite frustrated with this one, so he went to a shop to get a different valve and a different type of valve.
And he found that when the same valve is used in a Centric, the noise on it is reduced a lot because the valve that is being used for this valve is actually very quiet.
So that’s really important, because
