Submersible pumps

Description submersible pumps:

Submersible pumps are centrifugal pumps which are suitable for completely submerged operation. A watertight electric motor directly powers a rotating centrifugal impeller. Between the pump hydraulic parts and electric motor a mechanical seal (set) prevents water from entering the electric motor. 

The simple submersible pumps are equipped with a suction strainer and are mostly used as a portable pump in case of flooding. These pumps are mostly made out of plastic, cast iron or stainless steel. 

For industrial appications the following executions are available :

- Special drainage pumps for construction sites or mining sites: wear resistent models suited to pump water with high percentage of small abrasive particles such as sand and sludge and small stones.

- Sewage pumps: special clog free pumps suited to pump from waste water collection reservoirs/ pits.
