What is a centrifugal pump?

The centrifugal pump is the most used machine today to pump liquids. They are always rotating and work with a hydraulic mechanism, which transforms the mechanical energy of an impeller into kinetic or pressure energy of an incompressible fluid.

It is a type of device used to transport fluids, such as liquids or gases, by converting the kinetic energy of the motor into flow energy. These pumps work through the use of a rotating impeller that accelerates the fluid, creating a centrifugal force that propels it outwards.

The operation of a centrifugal pump is based on the principle of centrifugal force, which is the force resulting from the centripetal acceleration of the moving fluid. The pump impeller is made up of vanes or vanes that are designed to capture the fluid and accelerate it. As the impeller rotates, the fluid is thrown out, creating a continuous flow through the pump.

These pumps are used in a wide variety of industrial and commercial applications such as drinking water supply, agricultural irrigation, water drainage, chemical pumping, wastewater treatment, air conditioning circulation and many more. . Their versatile and efficient design makes them a popular choice for transporting fluids in a variety of settings.

Centrifugal pumps are characterized by their ability to generate a constant flow and enough pressure to move the fluid through pipes or other conveyance systems. In addition, their compact design, easy maintenance, and ability to handle different types of fluids make them a reliable and widely used solution in various industries.

How to install centrifugal pumps: general guidelines

  • The pump rotates freely by hand.

  • The suction valve must be fully open, while the discharge valve must be partially open.

  • The fixings and electrical connections are correct.

  • Pipe and pump are full of the liquid to be pumped. Otherwise, it is vitally important to fill it, since the pump can never run dry.

  • There is sufficient ventilation in the drive.

  • All rotating parts and surfaces that can reach high temperatures must be protected against contact.
