Centrifugal Pumps can have high flow capabilities.
Common uses include water, sewage, agriculture, petroleum and petrochemical pumping, but are used across a wide range of industries.
Various types of centrifugal pumps include
- Single impellor pumps
- Multi-stage pumps with a number of impellors in series giving lower flow but higher output pressure
- Magnetic drive pumps, used where leakage of the fluid being pumped poses a greater risk
- “Split Case” pumps which handle much bigger pressures and flows
Centrifugal Pumps are an extremely variable type pump, allowing high head/low flow, or low head/high flow.
They are adaptable to most environments, and reliable because of their simple construction.
