Centrifugal pumps create a vortex of water with the pressure increasing towards the outside of the impeller, they are harder to install and instructions should be read carefully, the benefits of a centrifugal pump are a greater volume of water at the same pressure as a regenerative pump and quieter in operation.
STD.VOLTAGE : 240V TO 220V / 50HZ
SPEED : 2800 rpm
PUMPING MEDIUM : CLEAR WATER FREE FROM SOLIDS,CHEMICALLY AND MECHANICALLY NON - AGGRESSIVE.
Centrifugal pumps are a sub-class of dynamic asymmetric work-absorbing turbo machinery. Centrifugal pumps are used to transport fluids by the conversion of rotational kinetic energy to the hydrodynamic energy of the fluid flow. The rotational energy typically comes from an engine or electric motor. The fluid enters the pump impeller along or near to the rotating axis and is accelerated by the impeller, flowing radially outward into a diffuse or volute chamber (casing), from where it exits.
Common uses include water, sewage, petroleum and petrochemical pumping. The reverse function of the centrifugal pump is a water turbine converting potential energy of water pressure into mechanical rotational energy.
General explanation: Like most pumps, a centrifugal pump converts rotational energy, often from a motor, to energy in a moving fluid. A portion of the energy goes into kinetic energy of the fluid. Fluid enters axially through eye of the casing, is caught up in the impeller blades, and is whirled tangentially and radially outward until it leaves through all circumferential parts of the impeller into the diffuser part of the casing. The fluid gains both velocity and pressure while passing through the impeller. The doughnut-shaped diffuser, or scroll, section of the casing decelerates the flow and further increases the pressure.
