Most commonly use pump on transferring or circulating water
Types of centrifugal pumps include volute or axial flow pumps. The volute takes water from the impeller and discharges the water perpendicular to the shaft. A centrifugal pump with a diffuser casing (axial flow pump) discharges the water parallel to the pump shaft. Centrifugal pumps are available in many types including single- and multi-stage end-suction, single- and multi-stage split-case, and vertical in-line pumps.
Centrifugal pump designs offer simple and low cost solutions to most low pressure, high capacity pumping applications involving low viscosity fluids such as water, solvents, chemicals and light oils. Typical applications involve water supply and circulation, irrigation, and the transfer of chemicals in petrochemical plants.
Several factors can have an impact on selecting the best pump to be used on a project. The flow rate, pressure losses, best efficiency point compared to the duty point, and the operating cost are all important factors when selecting a pump. Start with the required flow rate to determine which pump type is best suited for the application, then use the pump curve and operating cost analysis to finalize the selection.
