Centrifugal Pumps

Centrifugal pump operation

Centrifugal pumps move liquids using kinetic energy to overcome head (pressure) and produce flow by increasing the velocity of a fluid through the pump via a rotating impeller.

Centrifugal pumps are perfect for high volume transfers of low viscosity fluids via high speed rotating impellers.

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

As you can see below, centrifugal pumps can be constructed from various materials including stainless-steel, polypropylene & PVDF. They are the most used pump type in the world and are used in hygienic, chemical and water industries to pump thin fluids.

  • Water, Beer, Fruit juice concentrate, Food oils like sunflower oil, rapeseed oil, vegetable oil etc..
  • Clean water, wastewater, waste / trash sumps, polluted waters
  • Corrosive fluid, acid, alkali, polymers

Another major application of stainless-steel centrifugal pumps is CIP (clean-in-place) processes. Centrifugal pumps are ideal for pumping diluted caustic cleaning fluids at high velocity through pipework and CIP-ready pipeline items like process pumps, valves etc. to scour and sanitise production lines.
