The Best Submersible Pumps in Australia?

If you are looking for the best submersible pumps from around the world, you have come to the right place. At Pump Solutions Australasia, we import submersible pumps from the three best manufacturers in the world: Tsurumi, Grundfos and Lowara.

What are Submersible Pumps?

These pumps are pumps that can be submerged in water. That is because the motor is hermetically sealed inside the casing. These pumps are considered to be the most efficient pumps for wells or dewatering because of their design and dynamic.

Jet pumps are often used for similar applications, but they pull water. Submersible pumps push water mechanically, which is documented to be the more efficient way to move fluids. Because the pump is hermetically sealed, the pump is protected from a corrosive process called cavitation.

Applications for Submersible Pumps

For many of us, submersible pumps are the pumps we used around the house to dewater various rooms or basements after a storm. You may also have a submersible pump if you have a water well in your yard. However, they are used for much more than household applications.

These pumps are used for firefighting, mining, groundwater pumping, irrigation systems, oil wells, sewerage pumping, offshore drilling, slurry pumping and numerous other applications.

How Did We Choose Our Manufacturers for Submersible Pumps?

We choose our manufacturers only if they have worldwide reputations for high quality, high efficiency and long shelf life with minimal repairs.

Tsurumi is based out of Japan, have been in business since 1924 and are one of the most prolific manufacturers of high quality submersible pumps in the world. They make submersible pumps for four specialties: corrosion resistant, wastewater/sewerage, dewatering and sand/slurry.

Grundfos is the largest pump manufacturer in the world. They manufacture more than 12 million pumps every year. Besides submersible pump, they make centrifugal pumps, circulator motors and electric motors. Not only do they make their own motors, they make motors for many other manufacturers.

Lowara produces a large variety of pumps. Their mission is to provide a high production to cost ratio for their customers. They use AISI 316 and AISI 304 stainless steel for their pumps. This is optimal for sanitary water.

Applications for Submersible Pumps

There are a lot of different types and sizes of submersible pumps because they are used for a lot of different applications. At the small end of the scale, we have small submersible pumps for homeowners trying to get water out of flooded rooms. On the large end, there are large ones that move oil from offshore drilling rigs.

What are Submersible Pumps?

As the name might suggest, submersible pumps can be fully immersed in water. The motor is in a hermetically sealed casing which is close coupled to the pump body. The main benefit of being able to immerse a pump fully is that it helps prevent cavitation, which is more likely to take place when the pump is placed higher than the fluid to be pumped.

When Submersible Pumps Provide Major Advantages

With so many different kinds of pumps available, there are many applications in which there are multiple options. However, there are some in which submersible pumps are clearly superior. Here are a few.

Applications for Submersible Pumps

Extremely deep wells: If a deep well is crooked, it may provide problems with shafting, making the submersible pump the only choice.

High risk of surface flooding: In any application where there is a risk of a pump being flooded or hammered by spraying water, the hermetic seal of a submersible pump protects the motor.

Quiet operation required: A situation where you don’t want any noise is perfect for submersible pumps because they can’t be heard underwater.

Little or no installation space: Pumps under sidewalks or streets don’t really have a lot of available installation space. A submersible pump stays out of the way.

Agriculture: For many agricultural applications, there are two major advantages: there is almost no maintenance for submersible pumps and when they are hidden, they are less likely to be vandalised.

General Applications

Submersible pumps are used in these industries: drainage, slurry pumping, sewage pumping, water wells, oil wells, seawater handling, sewage treatment, fire fighting, deep well drilling, irrigation, mine dewatering, artificial lifts and offshore drilling rigs.

Tsurumi Submersible Pumps Solve Sewage Problem in Sydney

At Pump Solutions Australia, we import the best pumps from around the world. For submersible pumps, our “go to” brand is Tsurumi. Tsurumi pumps are manufactured in Japan. They are built to withstand the most demanding industrial or mining applications. They are mainstays in both the sewage and wastewater treatment industries.

Submersible Pumps For Sewage Problems

In the relatively new Douglas Park sewage collection station in Sydney, one of their main demands was for leaked corrosive fluids that ended up in the sump pit. The Tsurumi TM series is perfect for corrosive materials. It is made of titanium, which is the most corrosion-resistant material available for manufacturing.

The TM series is extremely popular for corrosive material due to the titanium stator housing. The stand, casing and motor components are moulded from FRP resin. They use a vortex impeller made from a resin that contains glass fibre for reinforcement. They feature an anti wicking cable gland. This helps to prevent water incursion in case the electrical cable is damaged.

It also has a dual silicon carbide seal which is protected by an oil chamber. This ensures that the liquid being pumped never comes in contact with either face. The chamber also features an oil lifter that makes sure the chamber gets lubricated even if the oil level drops. This helps to make the pump even more reliable and increases the intervals between maintenance.

The Tsurumi TM series has a three year warranty, but the life cycle is usually much longer.

All You Need to Know About Submersible Pumps

Most people think of submersible pumps as being popular for home use, but they are also used in a number of different industries. Not only are they used to pump water out of flooded homes, they are also used for pumping slurries, general industrial pumping, sewage pumping and the extraction of water in water wells and oil in oil wells.

They are also used for/in sewage treatment plants, fire fighting, seawater handling, artificial lifts, offshore drilling, irrigation systems and mine dewatering.

Submersible Pumps: How They Work

Submersible pumps are have motors attached to the pump body. The motors are hermetically sealed, as is the electrical cable attached to it. That’s why they can be submersed in fluids. For the pumps to operate, they must be fully submerged beneath the water. One of the best advantages of a submersible pump over other designs is that they don’t suffer from cavitation.

Submersible pumps push fluids to the surface, making them more efficient than jet pumps, which pull fluids.

A submersible pump is basically a centrifugal pump that can be submersed in fluid. It has an impeller which is driven by a motor. Rotational energy turns into kinetic energy and then into pressure energy as the water enters a diffuser.

Submersible pumps also require a special, heavy duty cable. Fittingly enough, it is called a submersible pump cable. It has to be durable and reliable enough to be operational deep within a well or surrounded by slurries or sewage. It can be used in freshwater or saltwater and can be buried directly within well castings.

Submersible pump cables can be simple or can be used to access an array of controls, depending on the application.

Uses for Submersible Pumps

Submersible pumps are so named because they are designed to be submerged in fluid. Sometimes, submersible pumps are called “electric submersible pumps” or “ESP’s.” Because they have to be submerged, they are not subject to pump cavitation, which occurs when there is a high disparity in elevation between the fluid surface and the pump.

Submersible pumps are more efficient and require less power than jet pumps because they push water to the surface instead of pulling it. Submersible pumps have a motor which is hermetically sealed in the casing of the pump. This ensures that water never touches an electrical component.

Uses for Submersible Pumps

Popular Applications of Submersible Pumps

Submersible pumps are most often used in the home for pumping water out of a basement. However, they are used for many applications in industry.

Pumping Sewage

Submersible pumps are efficient for pumping out septic tanks. Fluid is transferred into hoses to storage tanks and taken to a treatment facility.

Industrial Pumping

Submersible pumps are often used to pump excess water from work sites or flooded basements in construction sites. They can also be used to pump slurries.

Oil Industry

Submersible pumps can be used in inland or offshore oil wells to pump oil from the ground to treatment and holding facilities above ground.

Deep Well Drilling / Borehole Pumps

If you need to drill deep for water in a home, a submersible Borehole pump is a great solution. Borehole pumps can pump water from great depths to holding tanks and into homes.
