Common Benefits of Industrial Submersible Pumps

industrial submersible pumps

An industrial submersible pump is a pump that can be fully submerged in water. The motor is hermetically sealed and close-coupled to the body of the pump. The major advantage to a submersible pump is that it never has to be primed, because it is already submerged in the fluid.

Some submersible pumps can easily handle solids, while some are better for liquids only. Submersible pumps are quiet because they are under water. Caution must be used with submersible pumps; they must be fully submerged. The water around a submersible pump actually helps to cool the motor. If it is used out of water, it can overheat.

Primary Advantages of a Submersible Pump

The primary advantage of an industrial submersible is that it doesn’t not require priming as it is already submerged in fluid. In addition, there is a reduced floor space requirement since these pumps are typically installed below ground level.  Being installed underground also reduces noise levels.

Submersible pumps offer great application flexibility as many impeller arrangements are available to pass solids, abrasive materials, fibrous and stringy materials. They can also be used to provide some shredding or grinding capabilities to ease material movement throughout the system. A great variety of metallurgies are available to accommodate caustic/acidic fluids and other difficult to handle liquids.

High Temperature and Moisture Sensors are often available as options or built in to ensure proper protection of pump and motor.

All in all, industrial submersible pumps can provide highly cost-effective pumping solutions given the breadth of options available to tailor them to specific application requirements.

Common Sectors with Industrial Submersible Pump Applications

While submersible pumps can be found in lower horsepower models for simple well water lifting applications, higher horsepower applications in industrial and manufacturing settings use this same pumping technology:
