High quality range of centrifugal pumps many different options. Material choices include complete cast iron, stainless steel and even plastic. These pumps can be set up in parallel for more pressure or series to get more flow or have duty/standby operation.

Some important notes about centrifugal pumps:

The volute casing or chamber is where the impeller sits inside. Often the discharge and suction ports are moulded (cast) or connected to the volute in some way. Inside you will find where the impeller sits.

The bearing housing is another important part of a centrifugal pump. You can get different types of bearing housings and, with most manufacturers, they standardise on one or a few types for their whole range.

The seal type is another part that can cause a lot of fluid/product wastage and be a non-stop hassle for the user. The seal type has to be selected by a professional as there are different options available, such as mechanical and packed gland. But with the mechanical seals, you can get even more options such as cartridge style with, without flushing options or just standard rotating spring style.

Different types of materials are another option that is available. The most common materials are cast iron casing, bronze impeller and stainless steel shaft. However, you can get either all stainless steel or all bronze as well.

When selecting a centrifugal pump, you will need to know the following:
  1. Fluid being pumped
  2. Suction lift or flooded suction
  3. Discharge pressure or head (this takes into account the pipe size and length)
  4. You will also need to understand how to read centrifugal pump curves
Motor Pumps

Motor pumps is another name for centrifugal pumps. It can refer to either having an electric motor or a petrol/diesel motor.

Impeller Pumps

This is a type of centrifugal pump which is popularly known to use impellers or rubber rotors with flexible oriented blades or vanes. The blades/vanes rub and bend against the eccentrically shaped casing where they rotate.

End Suction Pumps

An end suction pump is a type of centrifugal pump that comes with a casing where the suction comes in from one end and the discharge comes out from the top. They normally have one impeller and are always single stage pumps. They are one of the most common configurations found in centrifugal pumps.

Centrifugal Pump Designs

Centrifugal pump designs also play a big part in how it will perform. There are very many centrifugal pump designs all created to suit various needs. You should note that the designs vary with different models such as horizontal multistage pumps, double suction pumps, regenerative pumps, self-priming pumps etc.

There are many different styles and configurations available which are named differently by various manufacturers and users. Some of the names are:

  • Vertical centrifugal pump
  • Horizontal centrifugal pump
  • Pump centrifugal
  • End suction centrifugal pump
  • Self priming centrifugal pump
  • ISO or DIN pumps
  • Circulation pump
  • Fluid pumps
  • Motor pumps
  • Impeller pumps
  • End suction pumps

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 has manufactured many centrifugal pumps systems. If you are interested in water booster systems, click here: Water Pressure Booster Systems

What are the common industries that these pumps are used?

Some of the industries that can utilize centrifugal pumps include 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. Also please be aware that these pumps will leak after sometime due to the seal wearing out. For chemicals, we recommend mag drive pumps.

What type of seals come in these pumps?

There are really only 2 types of seals for these centrifugal pumps. Mechanical Seals and Gland Packing. You can get both in different materials depending on what you are pumping e.g. hot liquid. Also you might be interested in sealless pumps? There is also a whitepaper on mechanical seal pumps vs mag drive pumps.
