Submersible Pumps – Function and Applications

Submersible pumps

The water pumping realm is full of diverse pumps. It is almost fascinating how different they are from each other, and how beautifully they perform their task of pumping. To dig into any pump’s information, there are some basic things one should know.   

A pump refers to a mechanical device. This device is used for moving fluids from one point of location to another point of location. As industry leaders that provide various types of pumps, we understand that, in some particular situations, our clients may be in need of a pump known as a submersible pump. So, let’s take a closer look at what exactly is a submersible pump, how it functions, and what are its uses.

What Are Submersible Pumps?

As the name itself suggests, a submersible pump refers to a pump that operates in submerged conditions, that is in the fluid that it is supposed to be pumped. As opposed to other pumps that are fitted on the surface, a submersible pump is generally fitted in a completely submerged condition. Also, in the case of submersible pump’s motor is close-coupled to the body & as the sealing of the highest quality is ensured, it is possible for them to operate in fully submerged conditions. 

How Does a Submersible Pump Work?

We all know that external pumps always need to pull the fluid to the surface. On the other hand, submersible pumps are pumps that function by pushing the fluid instead. When a submersible water pump is switched on, the impellers inside of the body of the pump would start to rotate. This rotation would help to draw water into the pump’s body. The impellers of the pump would then push the water through the diffuser, and further up to the discharge point.

What Are the Great Advantages of Submersible Pumps?

Submersible pumps, if of the right quality, can be used in unique situations as they hold many potential benefits over the external pumps. One of the biggest benefits of having a water pump completely submerged in a fluid is that the pump does not require to be primed. Submersible pumps are also much more efficient as compared to external pumps. This is because the water pressure assists in the movement of fluid into the pump, so less energy is consumed.

Another one of the great benefits of submersible pumps is that they always tend to last a little longer as compared to external pumps. This is because the submersible pumps have fewer mechanical issues. The most notable one of those is that submersible pumps generally don’t suffer from cavitation.

Common Applications: 

  • Pumping water from flooded basements.
  • Powering irrigation systems.
  • Pumping water from wells deep underground into above-ground holding tanks.
