Centrifugal pumps are employed in various industrial and engineering applications to transport two-phase mixtures as liquid and non-condensable gas. Several examples of the two-phase pump operation can be found, e.g., in the chemical and process industry or geothermal power stations. Predicting two-phase flows in centrifugal pumps with state-of-the-art computational fluid dynamic (CFD) methods is only possible by accepting significant uncertainties.
