Before heading towards the main topic, my dear readers, firstly you need to get some basic information about centrifugal pumps.

What is a centrifugal pump…?

Since the time of invention, the water pump is considered as one of the finest tools invented ever. Today in this age, this invention is still busy in heartening billions of lives as well as factories across the nation. A centrifugal pump is one of the simplest as well as the extensively used amid the asterism of water pumps. As its name says, it is different from an ordinary water pump which works on the principle of centrifugal forces. The main goal of this type of water pump is to convert rotational energy produced by the motor into kinetic energy which ultimately results into water erection from the pump. All this process takes places inside the impeller and the volute of the pump.

Applications of the centrifugal pumps

These days, the centrifugal pumps are used in petrochemical, sewage, paints, hydrocarbons, petroleum and water pumping applications. In addition to this, this type of water pumps also has a plethora of applications in industries like pharmaceutical, beverages, food-processing, wine-making, cosmetic and so on. Along with this, due to its compatible design, it is also used for pumping slurries as well as cooling & heating applications.

A centrifugal pump can also be used for several building applications, boiler feed applications, flood protection along with irrigation applications. Not only this, even fire security officers also used them as a sprinkler in order to spread hot water during fire emergencies.

Last but definitely not the least, these days, the mining factories also using these types of pumps in their mines for several applications like unscrambling minerals and bitumen from sand and clay. Moreover, miners also use them for moving slurries and solids.

Advantages of a centrifugal pump

The design of centrifugal pump is simple; only a few moving parts are used in manufacturing a final centrifugal pump. Most of the centrifugal pumps come with no drive seal technology due to which an operator didn’t have to face any pump leakage issues during working with it. The centrifugal pumps have less maintenance with respect to other motor pumps. The centrifugal pumps are more flexible and easy to move as well as use. The best part is that they didn’t eat much ground space for installation. The centrifugal pumps will offer reliable, effective and consistent operation. Along with all these advantages, few others are listed below:

  • Long service life

  • Appropriate for large powers

  • Comes with pressure relief valve so no safety valve is required

  • Can work continuously for long hours

  • Effortless operation

  • Can be direct drive through a turbine or an electric motor

Final Words

A centrifugal pump has always proved as a finest pumping solution due to several above mentioned reasons. Therefore, make sure you only purchase a centrifugal pump for all your need. For this, you need to contact Centrifugal Pump manufacturers.
