Abstract. The article is devoted to studying the contra-rotating stages with different impellers and blade discs. Determining the reduction of volumetric losses by modeling the contra-rotating stages in the software package ANSYS CFX. The work aimed to create and study the flow and characteristics: semi-open, closed impellers, and blade discs. As a result of the work, the following contra-rotating stages were determined and compared: the semi-opened impeller with the semi-opened blade disc; the closed impeller with the closed blade disc; the semi-opened impeller with the closed blade disc; the closed impeller with the semi-opened blade disc. As a result of research, fluid flows in contra-rotating stages and their characteristics in the form of pressure and efficiency were obtained. According to the obtained data, the expediency of using contra-rotating stages as a working body of the pump is written.

Keywords: pump, energy efficiency, semi-opened impeller, semi-opened blade disc.
