26 Oct Uses for Centrifugal Pumps
The Most Common Uses for Centrifugal Pumps
Ranking high in efficiency due to their simple design, centrifugal pumps are used over a wide range of applications. Their versatility in size, reliability, production of high flow rates, and ease of operation make them the ideal continuous working pumps in the industry, agriculture, and the domestic market. Simply put, there is a design of centrifugal pump suitable for virtually any process involving low-viscosity fluids.
Different Uses for Centrifugal Pumps
Here are a few examples of applications for centrifugal pumps to demonstrate their true value:
Irrigation Systems for Crops
Farmers rely on these pumps to keep their farms running smoothly. To produce crops with exceptional yields, farmers need to irrigate around the clock. Feeding water from lower elevations such as reservoirs, dams, and rivers requires the use of centrifugal pumps to move the water up and out through the irrigation systems at constant flow rates. Being able to handle a variety of fluids, centrifugal pumps are also used to spray crops with pesticides and fertilisers.
Moving water from low to high elevations at high and constant flow rates thereby ensuring continuous water flow is what you can expect from our range.
Filtration Systems in Water Treatment
Water treatment facilities need to provide clean, useable water. To provide water that is safe for human consumption, filtration systems are relied upon to remove unwanted particles, impurities, and in the case of desalination plants, salt from water. Centrifugal pumps are integral components of the filtration process as they provide the necessary pressure to push large volumes of water through at high flow rates. Not only are they used to circulate and move water from one section of the water plant to another, but they are also used for the jetting equipment needed to keep the pipes clean.
The chemical industry relies heavily on centrifugal pumps for the movement of corrosive, flammable, and viscous liquids during processing. Typically, the pumps are used to move liquids from one tank or process to another and from one location to another. The nature of corrosive and flammable liquids is such that they can cause damage to pumping systems when being moved. The pumps are designed to handle acids, alkalis, and other harmful chemicals, making them ideal for these applications. The high-pressure application of these pumps makes it possible to move viscous liquids, such as sludge or pulp.
Through our Finish Thompson range of centrifugal pumps, we at Prochem Chemical Pump Manufacturers offer pumping solutions that are corrosion-resistant, reliable, and energy efficient in handling harsh chemical transfers.
Liquids are being constantly transferred in the oil industry from refining processes to transfers of oil to storage tanks and transporting oil through pipelines. Process and utility centrifugal pumps not only assist in transferring oil, but they also play a large part in the refining process as they can handle highly viscous oils and other liquids with solid content.
