What is an End Suction Single Stage Pump
An End Suction Single Stage pump is the most common class of centrifugal pump. Its simple design has been tried and tested for centuries!
The basic principal of the centrifugal pump is fluid flows into the inlet of the pump where it enters the eye of the impeller. The impeller is driven & rotated by mechanical means such as an electric motor or engine etc.
The rotation of the impeller creates centrifugal force which directs the fluid along the impeller vane blades and pushes the fluid to the outer tip of the impeller vane where it enters the pump volute casing.
The volute is shaped in a “snail shell” type shape which directs the fluid around the volute casing, which is then separated by a “cutwater” or “breakwater”. The Cutwater / Breakwater splits the water between the discharge and the recirculating fluid in the volute casing.
Applications for Single Stage End Suction Pumps
Single Stage End Suction Centrifugal pumps are used in water supply, industrial applications for pressure boosting and liquid transfer, ventilation, air-conditioning and heating and agricultural / irrigation applications.
