Functions of Centrifugal and Dewatering Pumps
There are many types of pumps on the market, each with their own set of features and functions. The features and functions of the different types of pumps might confuse you. As a result, we have decided to make things easier for you by explaining more about the various types of pumps in the market. Therefore, in this article, we will be discussing the use of the centrifugal pump and the dewatering pump.
The centrifugal pump is the most preferred pump in the hydraulic field. The propellers inside of the pump are able to ‘turn’ at such a high speed that the water actually goes upwards! Firstly, centrifugal pumps are able to pump water at high flow rates and at high water pressures. As a result, these pumps are built to be more reliable than other hydraulic pumps. Secondly, they are also more cost-effective, making this an ideal choice for most people. Lastly, the value and durability of the centrifugal pump makes it suitable for the transportation of polluted and abrasive liquids. Industries that are currently using these pumps are Food and Beverages, Paper, Recycling, and Water.
Here at Eezee, we carry the 2DK20 Centrifugal Pump. This pump, made by DK, is suitable for pumping water and non-aggressive chemical liquids. Thanks to its open impeller, the model is able to pump large amounts of liquid without clogging. Moreover, with its compact size, it is simple to use, and is almost maintenance-free.
Dewatering pumps are essentially centrifugal pumps however the only difference is that they are located beneath the ground level. You can maintain and/or reduce water levels with the help of these pumps. In addition, you may choose to install these pumps in two ways, as horizontally or vertically.
Firstly, the horizontal installation of the pump means that it must be dry installed. Dry installation is a method of installation where the pump casing is never partially or wholly under water. The horizontal pump also comes with an electric motor and is suitable to use in potentially explosive environments.
Secondly, the vertical installation of the dewatering pump means that it is can be placed underwater. You would then submerge the motor in the water and position it beneath the pumps. You can use this kind of pumps for open-cast mining or to reduce groundwater.
We also carry the portable dewatering pump with a discharge hose from Tsurumi. This pump can be submerged in water because of its vertical installation. The uniquely designed agitator prevents an incident called “Air Lock” from occurring, which usually happens with some types of pumps.
We hope that you have learned a thing or two about the different types of industrial pumps available in the market. If you have any comments or suggestions that you would like to make, please leave them in the comments section below.
