Would you like to find out how a centrifugal pump works?

At InoxMIM we have been developing and manufacturing industrial machinery for more than 20 years.  We specialise in pumping equipment, from centrifugal pumps to positive displacement pumps, and we manufacture the machinery that the client requires of us according to the needs of their project. 

We have a wide international experience, with presence in the European market, in Latin-America, North Africa and Asia.  

We therefore know all the secrets of a centrifugal pump, how it works, its uses, types and characteristics.  

Take note and learn how it works!

What is a centrifugal pump?

A centrifugal pump is type of hydraulic pump that is used to transform the mechanical energy of a propeller or turbine into kinetic energy or pressure to an uncompressible fluid. The centrifugal pump thus converts the energy with which it is worked, in this case mechanical, into hydraulic energy.

What is a centrifugal pump used for?

The machinery that is used to move liquids using the hydraulic energy generated is called the centrifugal pump.  They are generally used to make a current of water flow, as well as for the liquid’s movement.

There are many industrial sectors that need to use centrifugal pumps in their mechanical processes.  Some of the sectors that use them most are the chemical industry, the Cosmetic machinery manufacturer for the development of creams or the food machinery  for the elaboration of many types of products

The workings of a centrifugal pump

In order to make a centrifugal pump work the following steps take place: first, the fluid enters at the centre of the turbine or propeller of the machine.  This part has a curved vane, also called a blade or paddle, that is used to drive the fluid.

Next, due to the centrifugal force that the pump produces the fluid is propelled towards the exterior where it is collected in the chassis or body of the pump.  

Finally, because of the structure of the machinery the fluid is driven towards the outlet tube.
