Pump System

A type of centrifugal pump that has a casing with the suction coming in one end and the discharge coming out the top. An end suction water pump would probably have the lowest initial cost for most applications, with reasonable efficiency. Typical applications are for moving high volumes of water i.e. flood mitigation, irrigation, agricultural and industrial applications. The pump can be designed as mobile pump or permanent installation; typically driven by diesel engine or electric motor.



A “self-priming” centrifugal pump overcomes the problem of air binding by mixing air with water to create a fluid with pumping properties much like those of regular water. The pump then gets rid of the air and moves water only, just like a standard centrifugal pump.

This type of pump differs from a standard centrifugal pump in that it has a water reservoir built into the unit which enables it to rid pump and suction line of air by recirculating water within the pump on priming cycle. This water reservoir may be above the impeller or in front of the impeller. In either case, the “self-priming” capability of the pump comes from the pump’s ability to retain water after the very first prime.
