Seawater lift pump systems are responsible for maintaining open canal levels to provide the suction flow of circulating water pumps at the set point. The objective of this paper is to design a 2-stage mixed flow pump (for seawater lifting), investigate the new impeller modeling method, and performance improvements of the impeller by using a commercial CFD code. The rotating speed of the impeller is 1,750 rpm with a flow rate of 2,700 m3/h. A finite volume method with a structured mesh and realized k-${varepsilon}$ turbulent model is used to guarantee a more accurate prediction of turbulent flow in the pump impeller. The performance variables such as the static head, brake horsepower, and efficiency of the mixed flow pump are compared based on changes in the impeller blade shape.
