ParkProcess offers a wide range of centrifugal pumps ranging from self-priming low pressure/high volume to high pressure/high volume.
The centrifugal pump is the most widely used pump type in the world. Centrifugal pumps consist of a set of rotating vanes, enclosed within a housing or casing, used to impart energy to a fluid through centrifugal force. The pump has two main parts: a rotating element which includes an impeller and a shaft, and a stationary element made up of a casing, stuffing box, and bearings. Centrifugal pumps operate using kinetic energy to move fluid utilizing an impeller and a circular pump casing. The impeller produces liquid velocity and the casing forces the liquid to discharge from the pump converting velocity to pressure.
The fluid enters the pump near the center of the impeller and is moved to its outside diameter by the rotating motion of the impeller. The vanes on the impeller progressively widen from the center of the impeller that reduces speed and increases pressure. This allows centrifugal pumps to produce continuous flows at high pressure.
The pressure head difference between the inlet and the outlet, or Total Head produced by the pump, is proportional to the impeller speed and diameter. Therefore, to obtain a higher head, the rotational speed or the impeller diameter can be increased.
We package pumps from a large variety of manufacturers including Goulds, Titan, NOV, Gorman Rupp, Griswold, Mission, MCM, Pace, and other well-known brands on skids with electric motor drives, i.e., Baldor, US Motors, Toshiba, WEG, Leeson, and many others.
