An experimental program comparing the performance of a single stage axial flow pump operating in both water and a 30 ppm solution of Polyox 301 is discussed in this report. Definitive results demonstrate that higher suction specific speeds at pump breakdown are obtained when pumping a dilute polymer solution. Photographs of pump breakdown are shown for both water and dilute polymer solution.
