Pumps General

  • Air-Operated Pumps Air operated pumps use compressed air to operate pumping action of the pump.
  • API Process Pump Review American Petroleum Institute (API) 610 standard for pumps handling hydrocarbons.
  • Centrifugal Pump Centrifugal pumps consist of a stationary pump casing and an impeller mounted on a rotating shaft.
  • Chemical Injection Pumps Chemical Injection Pumps are specially designed to operate with specific fluid handling requirements.
  • Chopper Pumps Review Chopper pumps are typically operated and designed for specific industrial or agricultural applications.
  • End Suction Pumps End suction pumps are one of the most common types of centrifugal pumps.
  • Explosion Proof Pumps Review Explosion-proof pumps are available in all pump technologies and types
  • Fire Pumps Fire pumps are used to move water through a fire sprinkler system or to manual hose bibs
  • Impeller Pump Types Impellers can be either single suction or double-suction.
  • Multi-Stage Centrifugal Pump Multi-Stage Centrifugal Pump Review
  • Oil mist Eliminators Review Oil Mist Eliminators trap or filter out oil mist
  • Peristalic Pumps Review Peristalic pump uses positive displacement to squeeze a leak-proof tube or hose, forcing the pumped fluid through the hose.
  • Piston Pump Review Piston pump is a type of reciprocating pump that pressurizes fluid by using reciprocating pistons
  • Plastic Pumps Review Plastic pumps are made for applications which require a high level of corrosion or damage resistance
  • Pump Diffuser Diffuser pump vanes are designed in a manner that the liquid exiting the impeller will encounter an ever increasing flow area
  • Self Priming Pumps Self-priming pump is a centrifugal pump that removes the need for external priming
  • Slurry Pumps Review Slurry pumps are built to handle thick, abrasive, or solids-filled slurries.
  • Submersible Pumps Submersible pumps are designed to function with both pump and motor submerged in the fluid to be pumped.
  • Trash Pumps Review Trash pumps, also referred to as sludge pumps, grinder pumps, chopper pumps, or wastewater pumps
  • Triplex Pumps Review Triplex pump mechanism contributes to a smooth flow, reduced pressure pulsations, and reduced fatigue
  • Vertical Turbine Pumps Vertical turbine pumps are centrifugal pumps designed to move water from an underground reservoir.
  • Viscous Liquid Pumps Review Viscous liquids are fluids that have a medium to high viscosity.

Centrifugal Pump Components

  • Centrifugal Pump Components General Typical Centrifugal pumps vary in design and construction from simple pumps with relatively few parts to extremely complicated pumps with hundreds of individual parts.
  • Pump Wearing Rings To minimize the cost of pump maintenance, many centrifugal pumps are designed with wearing rings.
  • Pump Stuffing Box It is not always possible to use a standard centrifugal pumps stuffing box
  • Pump Mechanical Seal One common method for sealing a pump shaft is with mechanical seals.
