CENTRIFUGAL PUMPS

Centrifugal Pumps

Centrifugal pumps are a popular choice for fluid movement and transfer in many applications. Not only are they capable of handling large quantities of fluids, but they can provide very high flow rates and can adjust their flow rates.

Features of a centrifugal pumps include:

  • closed coupled or long coupled installation
  • inline design and end suction
  • various construction materials, including cast iron and stainless steel
  • self-priming options
  • vortex and open impeller options

WORKING PRINCIPLE

Centrifugal pumps are commonly used to encourage flow or raise a liquid from a low level to a high level. These pumps convert energy, often from a motor, to energy in a moving fluid.

The two main components of the pump are the impeller and the casing. The impeller is the rotating part of the pump, whilst the casing provides an airtight passage which surrounds the impeller.

Fluid enters the casing, falls on the impeller blades and is whirled tangentially and radially outward towards the diffuser part of the casing. As the fluid moves through the impeller it gains velocity and pressure.

FAQs

In what materials are centrifugal pumps available?

Some of the most common materials used in designing centrifugal pumps include plastic, bronze, stainless steel and cast iron.

Do you supply centrifugal pump systems built on a skid?

Yes, Global Pumps have manufactured many centrifugal pump systems.

What are the common industries that use centrifugal pumps?

Most commonly, centrifugal pumps are found in fire services, air conditioner industries and mining industries.

Can I pump chemicals or acids with these pumps?

Yes and no. Depending on the fluid being pumped, you can use these standard conventional pumps. But the materials are limited. Be aware, that these pumps will leak after some time due to the seal wearing out. Therefore, for chemical pumping we suggest looking at the range of Techniflo chemical centrifugal pumps.

What type of seals come in these pumps?

There are only 2 types of seals for the Global range of centrifugal pumps - mechanical seals and gland packing. You can get both in different materials depending on what you are pumping e.g. hot liquid.

PRODUCT INFORMATION

Global Pumps offer a wide range of Centrifugal Pumps, suitable for a variety of applications. The following centrifugal pumps are available...

Global Series Centrifugal Pumps - End Suction

The Global Pumps range of Centrifugal Pumps are designed to offer easy maintenance. Their design allows the complete rotating element to be removed for servicing without disconnecting pipework.

These centrifugal pumps are suitable for the following applications: air conditioning, heating & ventilating, refrigeration, fire protection, plumbing, food & drink manufacture, circulating, water pressure boosting, transfer, water supply & treatment, process industry, petroleum productions and general industry.

Global Series Centrifugal Pumps - End Suction Close Coupled Pumps

The close coupled Global Series centrifugal pump uses standard end suction pump components, and specially designed support frame and stub shaft to couple the pump directly to a foot-and-flange, metric frame electric motor.

Features of the Global close coupled centrifugal pump includes:

  • close coupled design eliminates coupling misalignment problems, and has a cost saving advantage over traditional long coupled units
  • designed and built to DIN Standard 24255
  • mechanical seals are fitted and available in a variety of elastomers and face materials to suit varying fluids and temperatures
  • maximum operating pressure 1,600 kPa
  • flows to 300 L/s
  • heads to 150 metres

This close coupled Global centrifugal pump is suitable for general transfer, air conditioning, cooling towers, marina, chilled water, process industry, water treatment and supply irrigation, food and drink manufacture and general industry. Global EB Series Vertical Multistage Centrifugal Pumps The EB, EBI and EBN pumps are non-self-priming, vertical multistage pumps of inline design, flanged or with Victaulic couplings, with equally sized suction and discharge ports. All Global EB Series vertical multistage centrifugal pumps are equipped with a cartridge type mechanical seal for easy maintenance. These pumps are suitable for the following applications:

  • water supply and pressure boosting: in buildings, hotels, residential complexes, pressure booster stations, supply of water networks, pressure boosting for industrial water supply
  • light industry: washing and cleaning systems, car washing facilities, firefighting systems
  • heating, ventilation and air-conditioning: boilers. Induction heating, heat exchangers, refrigerators, cooling towers and systems
  • irrigation and agriculture: greenhouses, sprinkler irrigation, floor irrigation
  • water treatment: water softeners and demineralisation, reverse osmosis systems, distillation systems, filtration, ultra-filtration systems
