Correct configuration of pitot tube pumps: A guide

Recent testing and Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) studies have shown that pitot tube size and configuration (single or double blade) can have a considerable effect on the pressure distribution inside the rotating case. This distribution has a large effect on bearing thrust loads and the pressure at the pump seals (in the between bearing configuration).
