This paper presents a simplified, working radial type vane profile design procedure. This paper offers a detailed picture of radial type vane profile design procedure based on fundamental understanding of published procedures. There are limited numbers of published vane profile design procedures which generally lack the explanation and detailed step by step procedure available for designers to systematically design and develop radial type vane profile, so the designers are forced to reverse engineer the vane profiles popularly available in the market. In the case of published procedures great problem arises while following them since some of them are contradictory to each other. In this paper while designing the vane profile, the overall dimensions of an existing impeller were not changed. Commercial 3D CAD software is used to create the 3D model. This approach will encourage the designers to enhance the performance of existing as well as new models of pumps.
