People commonly use centrifugal pumps for “pumping water, solvents, organics, oils, acids, bases and any ‘thin’ liquids in both industrial, agricultural and domestic applications,” explains an article from Michael Smith Engineers Ltd., a leading pump specialist in the UK. If your company uses a centrifugal pump or needs one, Engineering Energy Equipment finds customized solutions for your energy applications.

What is a Centrifugal Pump and How Does it Work

A centrifugal pump is a hydraulic machine that uses rotating impellers to force liquid to move, converting it into a flow. In Florida, businesses and individuals often use centrifugal pumps for irrigation and drainage systems. The IQS Directory defines impellers as “an arrangement of backward curved vanes… mounted to an electric motor’s shaft.”

List and Explain the Features and Parts of a Centrifugal Pump

The page on the IQS Directory mentioned above lists four parts in addition to the centrifugal pump impellers.

The Michael Smith Engineers Ltd. article also explains that the main features of centrifugal pumps are “specified for higher flows and for pumping lower viscosity liquids” than Positive Displacement Pumps. The article entitled Positive Displacement Pumps, on the same company’s website, explains this type of pump in more detail.
