Centrifugal pump is also known as a Hydrodynamic pump or dynamic pressure pump. The best way to describe the method of action of these pumps is that they follow the principals of centrifugal force. Usually, the centrifugal force is easily applicable and easy to repair as well.

The centrifugal pump is one of the most widely used pumps in the market. There are two types of centrifugal pumps that mostly popular in the market, i.e. horizontal multistage pump and vertical multistage pump.

To fulfil the extreme demands of the clients, centrifugal pumps are made using the latest technologies and premium quality raw materials. 

These pumps can be used in many different places like the chemical industries, the water and wastewater management industries, refined sugar industries, stainless steel industries, power-stations, and handling of hydrocarbons in industries like irrigation and water desalination plants.

What Are Centrifugal Pumps Used for?

Centrifugal Pumps

The basic use of the centrifugal pumps is that they are used to move fluids from one container to another in an industrial process. Both the aforementioned types of centrifugal pumps can do the job of moving fluids quite efficiently.

The only way to differentiate them from each other is that they can be either heavy-duty centrifugal pumps or positive displacement centrifugal pumps. When it comes to heavy duty, these centrifugal pumps are used for corrosive or abrasive fluids handling on one hand and positive displacement on the other hand for general fluid handling.

How the Centrifugal Pumps Were Invented?

The main motive behind the invention of the centrifugal pumps was to use it for chemical handling in major chemical industries worldwide. The basic two models were ISO 5199/ ISO 2858. After it was invented, worldwide chemical processing industries began to use them for liquid or fluid transfer work applications.

Back then, the design was not very updated and has several faults in them, that's why when the first batch of centrifugal pumps came in action, the industrialists were majorly disappointed.

The disappointment pushed them harder to invent or rather upgrade the centrifugal pumps to a level that it can omit all the issues it was facing previously. The back pull up design was invented a few years later.

With the help of the back pull out design, it is easily doable to rotate the parts as per the situation's need. Even when the machine is turned on to perform its work; the rotation of the parts doesn't affect the suction or the discharge pipes, electric motor, or its alignments.

Technical Details of Centrifugal Pumps

The centrifugal pumps can withstand up to 160 degree Celsius, which means the liquid or the fluid it is transmitting from one container to another, be it any kind of chemical or just regular positive liquid, these centrifugal pumps can tolerate up to 160 degree Celsius of temperature. Capacity wise it can hold up to maximum 1000 m3/hr of liquid or fluid.

Besides, when it comes to distance centrifugal pumps, it can cover the total distance of 140m, which means the maximum distance between the source and the discharge point must be something around 140 meters.

Last but not the least, centrifugal pumps can take up to 14 kg per centimetre square, that means per cm square can hold 14 kg of fluid or liquid at a time. 

Installing Centrifugal Pumps

To make sure the centrifugal pump runs perfectly, the installation process must be done in the correct process. No matter how premium quality engineering or good pump suction you use poor installation can make the total process a failure. Hence, you need to have all the basic information before installing the centrifugal pumps.
