Self Priming Centrifugal Pumps - A Brief Overview!!!

                A pump is the premium machine invented that
                has been drastically elevating millions of lives and
                industries around the world. Amid the collection
                of pumps, self priming centrifugal pumps are the
                simplest and widely used.

                What are self priming pumps?

                Self Priming Pumps are the ones that have been
                specially designed to enable the pump to re-prime
                itself when under lift conditions. These pumps are
                well known for their smooth operations and are
                primarily used for the transfer of fluid from one
                point to another in the industries. These pumps
                are mostly used in waste water, automotive,
                mining, petrochemical, food processing and steel
                industry.

               Self Priming Centrifugal Pumps - A Brief Overview!!!


Self-primers are commonly known as centrifugal pumps because this pump’s
category is vulnerable to air-binding, when air in the pump prevents suction.

How does it work?

When the pump is started a rotating impeller produces a partial vacuum; air from
a suction pipe is drained into this vacuum and is merged into the liquid drawn
from the priming chamber. The resultant air-liquid mix is then pumped into an air
separation chamber, which is in the casing. In this chamber, the air is separated
from the liquid and expelled out through a discharge pipe, at the same time as the
liquid goes back to the priming chamber. This act repeats itself until the air from
the suction piping is expelled and changed by pumpage and the priming has been
finished.

What else?

1. These pumps are highly efficient as they eliminate the need of vacuum pumps,
   ejectors and foot valves.
2. These pumps are used to move liquids, slurries and fluids and do not create
   pressure; they displace fluids by causing a flow.
3. These centrifugal pumps require usual maintenance as it faces the problems of
   corrosion and overheating due to low flow.

However, for cost-effective and easy transfer of solid-laden liquids, industries
highly favor self priming centrifugal pumps.
