Types of Pumps
Pumps are an essential part of many industrial and commercial operations, and there are many different types to choose from. The type of pump you need will depend on the specific application it will be used for. Centrifugal pumps, positive displacement pumps, vacuum pumps, piston pumps, gear pumps, and sump pumps are all common types of pumps with specific uses. Selecting the correct type of pump for your needs is essential to ensure efficient operation and avoid potential problems.
√ Axial Flow Pump:
An axial flow pump is a positive displacement pump that moves fluid by pushing it through a revolving set of blades or vanes. This type of pump is often used in irrigation systems and industrial applications where large volumes of fluid need to be moved quickly and efficiently.
√ Booster Pump:
A booster pump is a type of centrifugal pump that is used to increase the pressure of a fluid. Booster pumps are commonly used in water systems and in applications where compressed air or other gasses need to be moved.
√ Circulation Pump:
A circular pump is a positive displacement pump that uses a rotating disc to move fluid through a series of chambers. This type of pump is often used in applications where high accuracy is required, such as in metering pumps.
√ Column Pump:
A column pump is a centrifugal pump consisting of a series of vertical columns connected to a rotating impeller. This type of pump is often used in applications where a high degree of resistance to wear is required, such as in sewage treatment plants.
√ Displacement Pump:
A displacement pump works by transferring fluid from one chamber to another by trapping a fixed fluid volume and then forcing that trapped volume out.
√ Fire Pump:
A fire pump is a type of centrifugal pump that is used to provide water to firefighting equipment. Fire pumps are often used in building sprinkler systems and industrial plants.
√ HVAC Pump:
An HVAC pump is a centrifugal pump used in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems. HVAC pumps are often used in building cooling systems and industrial plants.
√ Split Case Pump:
A split case pump is a type of centrifugal pump that consists of two halves that are connected by a shaft. Split case pumps are often used in irrigation and water systems applications.
√ Submersible Sewage Pump:
A submersible mixer pump is a type of centrifugal pump designed to mix fluids and move them. Submersible pumps are often used in sewage treatment and agriculture applications.
√ Trash Pump:
A trash pump is a type of centrifugal pump that is designed to handle fluids that contain solids. Trash pumps are often used in applications such as sewage treatment and agriculture.
√ Turbine Pump:
A vertical turbine pump is a centrifugal pump consisting of a series of vertical impellers connected to a rotating shaft. Vertical turbine pumps are often used in irrigation and water systems applications.
√ Wastewater Pump:
A wastewater pump is a submersible pump typically used to remove water-containing solids from a sewage system. Wastewater pumps are also often used in agricultural and irrigation applications. In many cases, these pumps remove water that chemicals or other pollutants have contaminated.
√ Well Pump:
A well pump is a type of centrifugal pump that is used to pump water from a well. Well pumps are often used in domestic and agricultural applications.
