Within the classification “kinetic pumps” (see Chap. 1), there is a group termed “special effect” pumps. These are pumps in which the means of energy addition is still kinetic, the addition of velocity, but that employ effects other than that of the classical centrifugal pump (see Chap. 2) to do so. At present there are six distinct types of special effect pumps: regenerative, partial emission, induced vortex, viscous drag, impact, and reversible.
