Centrifugal pumps are fairly simple in nature. They use the kinetic energy of a motor to move liquids. An engine is attached to the axis, which then rotates the pump impeller, which is reminiscent of an old ship’s “water wheel”. The rotation moves the water from its entry point through the casing, … [Read more...] about How Centrifugal Pumps Work: Advantages and Disadvantages of Centrifugal Pumps
