What is a Booster Pump
Booster pumps boost pressure improving the flow rate.
A booster pump works just like a fan with blades that spin to increase air movement with an impeller that increases flow and pressure.
In a similar manner to a fan with blades that spin around to increase air movement the booster pump uses an impeller to increase the water flow rate and pressure.
Applications for Booster Pumps
Booster pumps are used to pump water and other liquids in mining, industrial, commercial and municipal applications.
Types of Booster Pumps
Centrifugal pumps are used to transport fluids by the conversion of rotational kinetic energy to the hydrodynamic energy of the fluid flow. The fluid enters the pump impeller along or near to the rotating axis and is accelerated by the impeller, flowing radially outward into a diffuser or volute chamber (casing), from which it exits.
Common uses include water, sewage, agriculture, petroleum and petrochemical pumping. Centrifugal pumps are often chosen for their high flow rate capabilities, abrasive solution compatibility, mixing potential, as well as their relatively simple engineering.
Renewable energy driven pumps including solar surface pumps provide the perfect sustainable, reliable and cost efficient alternative to irregular water supply solutions in remote locations or for highly specific applications anywhere.
Theses pumps provide individual solutions to water problems where conventional water supply systems fail or simply cannot reach. Although the initial investment including solar panel is higher, the operating cost is minimal.
The CR Flex series from Grundfos is an effective pump solution for applications including small-scale irrigation, livestock and fish farming, water supply for remote villages, pressure boosting in the house and swimming pools.Read More
