Single stage centrifugal pumps for high flow/low pressure transfer
Single stage centrifugal pumps are the most common pump for fluid transfer in high flow rate, low pressure installations. If a lower flow rate or a higher pressure is needed over what a single stage centrifugal pump can provide, a multistage centrifugal pump is a better suited alternative. Centrifugal water pumps are common single stage pumps, however due to the wide range of materials available centrifugal pumps can also be used for other low viscosity fluids such as fuel, oils and petrochemicals. Read our guide on when to select a centrifugal pump versus when a positive displacement pump is better suited here.
Single stage centrifugal pumps are popular pumps for a wide variety of uses including:
Light fuel transfer
Pressurised water supply
Inert gas cooling
Washing and fire fighting
Air condition supply
Sea water circulation
Waste water transfer
Single stage centrifugal water pumps benefit from a simple design with few moving part, which means there are often lower maintenance costs. Many single stage centrifugal pumps also have a back pull out design for quick and cost effective maintenance. Centrifugal pumps can be made to European Standardised Dimensions, which include DIN24255, EN733, (EX DIN 24256) and ISO2858 / EN22858, ISO5199/ EN25199.
