The best advice I never received was stop listening to the professors. They care nothing about you and your just time away from research.

His arrogance is in a world of its own. I left Lsu with my degree and will never return because of him.

The man is a vile piece of shite. I refuse to ever give to LSU because of him and a few other shitty profs in the ME department. He is the worst part of the ME department at LSU and the entire department would be better if he would have stayed at NASA. Look into taking fluids at UNO and transferri...

Since it's horizontal, it might be an axial flow pump with multiple stages or progressing cavity pump. It sounds like it is just for moving liquids at high pressure and flow rates.
Is there a diagram of the how the pump works?
