Centrifugal pumps perform pumping by means of impeller motions in the corresponding chamber from the center out, in other words, by means of centrifugal forces.
Centrifugal pumps are applied for pumping clean water and chemically non-aggressive liquids. Pressure in cenrifugal pumps is created by rotation of one or several impellers. Centrifugal pumps feature easy and robust operation and require no maintainance. Centrifugal pumps should be installed in places protected from weather impact.
Single stage centrifugal pumps with horizontally placed shaft and single-inlet impeller refer to the most wide-spread type of centrifugal pumps.
Centrifugal pumps are defined as follows: cradle-mounted, horizontal, borehole, submersible, vertical, chemical, condensate, crude-oil, marine, sand, soil, sludge, sewage pumps, pumps for suspended solids, peripheral and benzin pumps.
When selecting a pump one should take into account the variety of pump parameters in terms of flow rate and head as well as the possibility to find the required mode in parameter working area.
