What is a Turbine Pump
A turbine pump is a class of centrifugal pump which uses turbine-like impellers with radially oriented teeth to move liquids.
Turbine pumps are commonly used in installations which require high head, low flow, and compact design.
A vertical turbine pump commonly removes water from an underground well or reservoir.
The electric motor is located at the top of the pump above the liquid allowing the pump to operate without the need for mechanical seals. As such, standard electric motors can be used instead of specialised submersible motors.
Applications for Turbine Pumps
Turbine pumps are used in a wide range of industrial applications, irrigation / agriculture, boosting water pressure in municipal pumping systems and for many other other pumping requirements.
