Moves liquid with centrifugal force. Available in circular and volute configurations.
A pump consisting of an impeller fixed on a rotating shaft and enclosed in a casing or volute and having an inlet and a discharge connection. The rotating impeller creates pressure in the water by the velocity derived from the centrifugal force.
n: a pump with an impeller or rotor, an impeller shaft, and a casing, which discharges fluid by centrifugal force. An electric submersible pump is a centrifugal pump.
Uses centrifugal force to move water or other liquids. Centrifugal pumps use an impeller and a volute to create the partial vacuum and discharge pressure necessary to move water through the casing. The impeller and volute form the heart of a pump—their design determines its flow, pressure, and solid handling characteristics. As the impeller rotates and churns the water, it purges air from the casing, creating an area of low pressure, or partial vacuum, at the eye (center) of the impeller. The weight of the atmosphere on the external body of water pushes water rapidly through the hose and pump casing toward the eye of the impeller. Centrifugal force created by the rotating impeller pushes water away from the eye, where pressure is lowest, to the vane tips, where pressure is the highest. The velocity of the rotating vanes pressurizes the water, forcing it through the volute and discharging it from the pump.
The rotation of an impeller forces the product into and out of the pump cavity - in which the fluid is accelerated centrifugally until it attains the tangential velocity close to the impeller tip. The flow is controlled by the choice of impeller diameter and rotary speed of the pump drive. For animated function diagram click here or here.

pump which uses operation concept based on centrifugal force.
A water pump using a rotating element or screw to move water. The faster the rotation, the greater the flow.
A pumping mechanism that spins water by means of an "impeller". Water is pushed out by centrifugal force. See also multistage.
Pump which expels water by centrifugal force through the ports of a circular impeller rotating at high speed. With this type of pump, the discharge line may be shut off while the pump is running without damaging the pump or hose.
A rotating pump, used for pushing large volumes of oil and gas through pipelines.
A pump based on a rotating impeller inside an enclosed case with an inlet and an outlet for pressurized water flow in one direction.
Consists of one or more impellers mounted on a rapidly rotating shaft; the liquid enters the impeller at the center (eye) and is impelled outward from the center by centrifugal force at high velocity into the volute of the pump casing. The function of the volute is to catch the impeller discharge and convert peripheral (tangential) velocity head into pressure head while conducting the liquid at a reducing rate of flow to the discharge nozzle of the pump casing.

A rotating pump, commonly used for large-volume oil and natural gas pipelines, that takes in fluids near the centre and accelerates them as they move to the outlet on the outer rim.
A machine for moving a liquid by accelerating it radially outward in an impeller to a surrounding volute casing.
The only type of pump used in a pool or spa circulation system. Uses centrifugal force created by the rotation of the impeller to power water through the circulation system.
A pump containing a rotating impeller or rotating vanes mounted on a shaft in a casing and turned by a power source.
A fire pump using the theory of centrifugal forces (forced to the outside) to develop and impart velocity energy to the water as it passes through the pump. There are single and multistage centrifugal pumps. Pump with one or more impellers that utilize centrifugal force to move the water. Most modern fire pumps are of this type.
A pump that moves water by centrifugal force developed by rapid rotation of an impeller.. As the rotating impeller whirls the water around, centrifugal force builds up pressure forcing the water through the discharge outlet.
A Centrifugal Pump is a rotodynamic pump that uses a rotating impeller to increase the pressure of a fluid. Centrifugal pumps are commonly used to move liquids through a piping system. The fluid enters the pump impeller along or near to the rotating axis and is accelerated by the impeller, flowing radially outward into a diffuser or volute chamber, from where it exits into the downstream piping system.
