Industrial pumps have a wide range of applications
Industrial pumps are various types of pumps that are designed to function reliably even under unfavourable environmental conditions. Examples are rotary lobe pumps, air diaphragm pumps or small centrifugal pumps. Pressure boosting systems can also be included.
What manufacturers of industrial pumps should offer
Manufacturers who offer pumps for industry should have a correspondingly large range of pump technology.
In the case of technical products, it always makes sense to offer expert advice.
A prompt delivery of the ordered pumps should be a matter of course.
The manufacturer must be able to suggest alternatives if a particular pump is not available for a longer period of time.
A customer service that helps with questions and problems after delivery is a true quality feature of a manufacturer.
The warranty periods offered give an indication of the service life of the pumps.
A wide range of accessories completes the range.
Features of the rotary lobe pump
The rotary lobe pump is a self-priming positive displacement pump. This pump technology is available in numerous different versions. But they all have the following characteristics in common:
They are compact in design, with the suction and discharge openings on one line.
Rotary lobe pumps have a high efficiency compared to other pump types. They do not consume so much energy and are therefore cheaper to operate.
The pumped medium can have both a high and a low viscosity.
The symmetrical design of these pumps makes it possible to reverse the direction of rotation and thus the delivery direction.
Rotary lobe pumps operate reliably even with fluctuating solids content in the pumped medium.
The risk of clogging by solids or foreign bodies in the pumped medium is relatively low.
The compressed air diaphragm pump
The compressed air diaphragm pump is the only positive displacement pump in which the delivery volume can be adjusted very precisely by throttling the compressed air. However, these pumps are not suitable for some applications, as strong pressure fluctuations occur briefly when the pumping volume changes. The compressed air diaphragm pump also requires a lot of energy, as the compressed air requirement corresponds to the delivery volume.
Features of the small centrifugal pump
Centrifugal pumps are offered in an almost unmanageable variety of sizes and designs. One variant is the small centrifugal pump. It is used, for example, for circulating, conveying or dosing lyes, acids, salt solutions or water. Since these pumps often have to withstand aggressive fluids, they are often designed as stainless steel pumps. They have a compact design and are inexpensive to purchase. In operation they are safe, quiet and low-maintenance.
The pressure booster system
A pressure boosting system is one or more automatically controlled pumps which increase the supply pressure in the water supply. In buildings, they serve to ensure sufficient water pressure on all floors. They can also be found in large plants, such as the waterworks of municipalities. Pressure boosting systems are used there if there are very large differences in altitude in the area of water supply.
