Stainless Steel Centrifugal Pumps

Hygienic Stainless Steel Centrifugal Pumps move liquids using kinetic energy via a rotating impeller and are ideal for low pressure and / or low viscosity applications. A centrifugal pump produces a head and flow by increasing the velocity of a fluid through the pump via a rotating vane impeller.

The rotating impeller increases pressure and moves the fluid. The fluid enters the pump close to the rotating axis (or eye) of the impeller and enters the cavities between the vanes of the impeller.

As the pump impeller rotates, the fluid flows outward from the central axis into a chamber where it is discharged. As the fluid leaves the the axis of the impeller, a low pressure area is created and this draws more liquid into the pump inlet.


Typical Applications for Stainless Steel Centrifugal Pumps

Stainless Steel Centrifugal Pumps are commonly used by our customers to pump thin, food grade fluids like water, juice or thin oils.

We have centrifugal pumps available in many forms and materials including high hygiene stainless steel and corrosion resistant plastics.


Centrifugal Pump Types

Centrifugal pump types include radial, axial and mixed flow and can be categorised into the following groups.

  • End suction pumps
  • In-line pumps
  • Double suction pumps
  • Vertical multistage pumps
  • Horizontal multistage pumps
  • Submersible pumps
  • Self-priming pumps
  • Axial-flow pumps

Multistage Centrifugal Pump

A Centrifugal Pump with two or more impellers is called a Multistage Centrifugal Pump. The impellers can be mounted on a single or multiple shafts and can be connected to increase pressure or flowrate.
