How do you know when a centrifugal pump is the right pump? Centrifugal pumps are designed for certain industries and have specific uses. We will explain how a centrifugal pump works and then describe some of its uses in specific industries.
What is a Centrifugal Pump and How Does it Work?
A centrifugal pump has an impeller on the inside of a casing. Liquids are forced into the centre or “eye” of the impeller. The impeller rotates and the rotational force is converted into centrifugal force. The liquid is propelled out the impeller channel into the volute chamber, where some of the force is turned into pressure due to less space in the casing.
Advantages of Centrifugal Pumps
Centrifugal pumps are known for high efficiency with low power consumption. This combination is crucial in a commercial building, for example, where many centrifugal pumps may be used. Because of their simple design, they are known for durability and low maintenance.
Uses for Centrifugal Pumps
Centrifugal pumps are used in buildings for pumping the general water supply, as a booster and for domestic water supplies. The design of a centrifugal pump makes them useful for pumping sewage and slurries. They are also used in fire protection systems and for heating and cooling applications. In addition, they are popular in the beverage, dairy, food and light chemical industries.
