Different Types of Pumps
Pumps are normally used to move liquids or gasses via mechanical means, usually with electrical energy being converted into hydraulic energy to drive the pump. For the most part, such pumps are powered by motors that are specifically built and designed to fit specific pump types and flow rates. Some industrial pumps are also driven by gearboxes for optimised control for flow rates and power being sent to the pump from the motor. Submersible pumps are mechanical pumps that can be submerged in the liquids they are pumping, making them ideal for underground pumping solutions such as boreholes, sewage, sludge, and dewatering.
How Does a Mechanical Pump Work?
Mechanical pumps, such as submersible and positive-displacement pumps, are driven by electric motors that can produce enough kW to power the pump unit. The electric energy is converted into hydraulic energy by means of a piston or a similar mechanical element in the pump, generating the force that is required to move the fluids through the system. Positive-displacement pumps trap a specific amount of the fluids in a cavity and force that amount out – a process that is referred to as positive displacement. Submersible pumps can be placed directly in the fluids, acting in a similar fashion to displace liquids within a sealed or closed pipeline or surface-pumping system.
The Applications of Submersible Pumps
Submersible pumps are ideal for underground pumping purposes and commonly used in sewage systems, boreholes, and dewatering applications. We offer a wide range of units that cater to these specific applications, ensuring that your business can get the ideal pump for the job. Our products include a selection of power outputs as well, giving you the freedom to find the exact unit that matches a specific application.
