It's interesting when we talk about centrifugal pumps, this is a centrifugal pump, this is a centrifugal pump, this turns out to be a centrifugal pump. They are very different in shape and size, but they would still be collectively referred to as centrifugal pumps. Centrifugal pumps are a big category, and we classify centrifugal pumps according to their internal structure or other characteristics.
Centrifugal pumps are widely used in modern industry and daily life. Centrifugal pumps are found in all areas of fluid transport.
Centrifugal pumps are divided into many types according to different structural characteristics.
■ According to the number of working impeller: there are single stage pumps and multistage pumps;
■ According to the working pressure: there are low pressure pumps, medium pressure pumps, high pressure pumps;
■ According to the suction type: there are single suction pumps and double suction pump;
■ According to the pump casing joint form: there are horizontal split casing pumps and vertical joint pumps;
■ According to the discharge type: there are volute pumps and guide vane pumps.
For example, we sometimes say one pump belongs to a multistage pump according to the impeller stage number, then observe its structural characteristics, and it may be horizontal pump, or vertical combined surface pump, or guide vane pump, or high pressure pump, or single-side water pump, etc.
■ According to the different position of the pump shaft: there are horizontal pumps and vertical pumps. Horizontal centrifugal pump are the most widely used in petrochemical industry.
■ Horizontal centrifugal pumps according to the pump casing split form: there are radial split horizontal centrifugal pumps and axial split horizontal centrifugal pumps
■ According to the number of pump casing: there are single casing pumps and double casing pumps (cylinder type);
■ According to the bearing support type: there are cantilever centrifugal pumps and between-bearings centrifugal pumps.
The chart below is simple and clear and very easy to understand the classification of centrifugal pumps.
|Pump type||Orientation||Type code|
|Centrifugal pumps||Cantilever||Flexibly coupled||Horizontal||Foot-mounted||OH1|
|Vertical in-line with bearing bracket||OH3|
|Rigidly coupled||Vertical in-line||OH4|
|High-speed integrally geared||OH6|
|Between-bearings||Single-stage and two-stage||Axially split||BB1|
|Radially split||Single casing||BB4|
|Vertically suspended||Single casing||Discharge through column||Diffuser||VS1|
|Separate discharge||Line shaft||VS4|
Application of Diagonal Flow Pumps in Water Conservancy Project
A Diagonal Flow Pump is also known as a guide vane mixed flow pump, also known as an adjustable blade guide vane vertical mixed flow pump. We list some project cases to display the application of diagonal flow pumps in major water conservancy pump stations.
Classification of Centrifugal Pumps
Centrifugal pumps are widely used in modern industry and daily life. They are a big category. It's very intuitive to know the classification and appearance of centrifugal pumps through a chart. There are horizontal chemical single stage centrifugal pumps, multistage pumps, high pressure pumps, s...
