What is the need for a Water Pump in Industries?


A pump is a machine used to move, compress, or transfer water. Various types of pumps are available such as jet pumps, centrifugal pumps, gear pumps, peristaltic pumps, gravity pumps, impulse pumps. All of them are useful in different industries. For daily use, the most commonly used pump category is the centrifugal deformation water pump.


Water pumps are important tools for a variety of household, light commercial or farm tasks, especially in rural areas. Water pumps can drain water from basements and shallow flooded areas, drain and fill pools and dams, and can be used for agricultural irrigation.


The main function of the water pump is to remove excess water or transport water between two points. Water pumps fall into two different categories of centrifugal pumps and positive displacement pumps.


Centrifugal Water Pumps


The purpose of these pumps is to push water into the pump and pressurise the flow using a rotating impeller. It is particularly suitable for thin, high-flow liquids. All types of liquids can be pumped, even low viscosity liquids. Centrifugal water pumps are commonly used in:


  • Buildings where water is pumped, including pneumatic systems, and where suction lifts are not required.
  • Booster Applications Booster pumps are used to increase pressure from the suction line.  
  • Sump Pit A horizontal or vertical water pump is used and is operated by an automatic switch controlled by the swimmer.


Applications Centrifugal Pump


Water is essential for efficient agriculture. Such water is often found in boreholes, ponds, wells, streams, and rivers. Water pumps are the most efficient means of drawing water from these sources. Various types of pumps are available. Choosing the correct type of pump depends on the suction and dispensing heads.


Centrifugal water pumps are most commonly used for agricultural purposes. It is a rotating machine in which an impeller rotates inside a casing, sucks liquid at its centre, and discharges it through a hole on the side of the casing by centrifugal force. Effectiveness.


Pumps are commonly used in agriculture to move water from sources, rivers, dams, and wells through pipes to points of use or storage facilities such as water tanks and irrigation systems. Centrifugal pumps are also widely used for pumping sewage because they can be easily installed in pits or shafts and transfer suspended solids in sewage.


Piston Pumps


These are positive displacement pumps with an expanding cavity on the suction side of the machine and a contracting cavity on the discharge side of the machine. Water pumps work by alternately filling cavities and expelling a fixed amount of liquid on each cycle, regardless of the pressure or pump head used.


Using Piston or Positive Displacement Pumps


Positive displacement pumps are commonly used to transfer highly viscous liquids such as oils, paints, resins, and foods. Preferred when accurate metering or high-pressure output is required. Unlike centrifugal pumps, the performance of positive displacement pumps is not affected by pressure, so they are preferred even in unstable supply situations. Mostly self-priming


Positive Displacement Water Pumps


These pumps are ideal for a variety of industries working with both delicate solids and highly viscous liquids. Used to provide a fixed flow rate during mechanical contraction and expansion of flexible membranes.
