Submersible pumps feature an impeller and a hermetically sealed motor filled with water or oil to prevent overheating. These pumps are built for complete submersion in the pumping fluid and operate by pushing, rather than pulling, fluid through the pump and to the surface. As the pump runs, the impeller draws the liquid into the pump, and the force of the impeller drives the substance out of the pump.
The design and operation of submersible pumps eliminate the need for priming and prevents cavitation, which occurs when there is a high elevation difference between the pump and fluid service. Submersion in the pumping substance also improves the efficiency of the pump, reducing energy consumption.
Submersible Pumps for Industrial and Generic Applications
There are different types of submersible pumps, including single or multiple-stage options. Single stage submersible pumps have one impeller and provide low head and low flow pumping. Multiple-stage pumps feature a sealed motor at each stage to deliver more power for demanding pumping applications. The versatility and high efficiency of submersible pumps make them ideal for wastewater and lifting highly viscous fluids or slurries.
Typical applications for submersible pumps include:
- Borewell lifting
- Irrigation systems
- Mine dewatering
- Municipal water extraction
- Oil wells
- Pond filtration systems
- Wastewater and sewage
