Sea water pumps are used to transfer or circulate sea water for various applications on board a marine vessel. The wide range of uses of a seawater service pump includes anything from ballast transfer to bilge pumping and firefighting to high pressure deck washing. Sometimes, particularly on smaller vessels, the same marine seawater pump will be used for a range of general service requirements. As a result, a general service sea water circulation pump is required to be relatively flexible in terms of its performance capabilities and is commonly a centrifugal pump.
To handle the corrosive salt content in seawater, we tend to specify bronze as a cost effective alternative to stainless for all salt water pumps, brine pumps and marine raw water pumps. As UK agent for Azcue; a specialist sea water centrifugal pump manufacturer, we offer a large range of marine type approved, sea water circulation pumps which you can see below.
