Centrifugal devices are not complicated to operate and do not require any special know-how. Due to their design, maintenance is also a relatively minor task.
Another positive point is their durability and if a component needs to be replaced, there is no need to call in experts. They are far simpler to work with than peripheral pumps.
The self-priming model allows water to be sucked in even when there is air in the liquid. This is made possible by a suction port that is off-center with respect to the axis of the pump body. This equipment is made up of a mechanism that facilitates priming and therefore the starting of the pump.
A submersible water pump, also known as a bell pump, has a unique design that allows it to lift water from deep levels of the ground. It comes in handy when there’s rising ground water from floods or even when extracting water from wells and boreholes. Specific types of these pumps are designed to lift wastewater. A submersible water pump has less chance of cavitation compared to surface pumps. These products are available in both electric and electro-mechanic versions.
Based on the way in which they are powered, submersible pumps can be subcategorized in 5 groups:
- Centrifugal pumps
- Helical-rotor pumps
- Air-lift pumps
- Deep-well jet pumps
- Submersible hydraulic ram pumps
- An Industrial Water Pump
As the name indicates, an industrial water pump
is more suited for industrial settings and can work harder than standard water pumps. It’s noteworthy that these pumps can handle some liquids other than water.
Some usages for an industrial water pump
- Removing excess water from construction areas
- sending water to different manufacturing processes in a factory
- clearing out flooded areas
- transferring wastewater that flows through wastewater facilities
There are two main types of industrial pumps:
- Centrifugal pumps: these are more common and are used specifically for water.
- Positive displacement pumps: these can move water AND build pressure
