Self-Priming Pumps

Self-priming pumps sit above the pumping liquid and use centrifugal force to create a pumping action. These centrifugal pumps are called “self-priming” because they do not require external assistance to generate and maintain vacuum pressure. As fluid enters the pump, it uses a mixture of water and air to evacuate air from the suction line. The impeller then beings rotating, allowing fluid to flow freely through the pump. 

Self-Priming Pumps and Efficient and Easy to Maintain

Industrial self-priming centrifugal pumps are designed to sit above the liquid source and can be driven electrically or by gas or diesel. These pumps are efficient, and since they sit at ground level, are easier to access and maintain. Self-priming pumps handle fluids, slurries, and solids, providing a versatile solution for any industry.

Some of the typical applications for self-priming pumps include:

  • Construction Dewatering
  • Flood Control
  • Municipal Water Treatment
  • Paper Mills
  • Underground Storage Tanks
  • Wastewater & Sewage Handling Systems
