What is a centrifugal pomp?

A conventional centrifugal pump provides a very efficient method of moving fluids in large volume, typically with a low viscosity and medium to small solids, though models are available for handling more difficult fluids. A centrifugal pump is a pump based on a rotodynamic principle. The centrifugal pump is ideal for the transportation of polluted and abrasive liquids.

How does a centrifugal pump work?

A centrifugal pump has a casing, with an impeller in the case: the component which transfers the energy from the motor drive into the fluid. Impellers are available in many configurations including shrouded, open and screw-type. The variation allows different fluids to be handled from water-thin, clean fluids through to handling larger solids such as potatoes or slurry suspensions such as liquid lime chemical. 

Types of centrifugal pumps

There are many types of centrifugal pumps: screw centrifugal pumps, metallic and non metallic centrifugal magdrive pumps and industrial centrifugal pumps and . There are also centrifugal pumps with a special high shear mixing method
