What is a Water Pump?

The date is 3 BC. The first example of water pumps dating back to the century was designed by the scientist Archimedes. The first example in question works in accordance with the principle that mechanical force can physically repel matter using lifting and compressive forces. Water pumps are mechanical devices used to transport liquids. In short, they are used for transporting and transmitting liquids from one point to another. Although it is known that there are many types of water pumps, it can be said that they can be studied in two classes with dynamic and positive displacement. They are designed depending on the substance of the content that the pumps in question will provide transmission. The pump materials used for the transmission of substances that may be considered dangerous, such as acid, usually consist of durable substances such as iron, aluminum, lead.

What are the Types of Water Pumps?

* Submersible Pump

* Hydraulic Pump

* Screw Pump

* Peristaltic Pump

* Centrifugal Pump


Submersible Pump

Types of submersible pumps work when fully submerged in water. They are commonly known as pumps, which are used in sewers and septic tanks. Submersible pumps, which can be used for many years despite the fact that they work underwater, are also often used for the extraction of underground water to the earth.

Hydraulic Pump

The working principle of hydraulic pumps can usually be summarized as the working energy they create from the pressure they bring to the liquid. Hydraulic pumps that can operate at very high bar pressures are also available in crawler, gear and piston types.

Screw Pump

Screw pumps, which are one of the commonly used pump types, are usually used for transporting liquids with a certain level of visc October along an axis. The movements of the screws of screw pumps, which are generally known to be used in irrigation activities in agriculture, create a vacuum and thus distribute the high axial force of the pumping process.

Peristaltic Pump

The areas of use of peristaltic pumps that provide a regular flow for blending and dosing operations are generally known as food, water treatment, chemical processing industries. The device that does not have contact with liquid is a kind that needs to be cleaned less than other types of pumps. For this reason, it can be said that they need less care than other varieties.

Centrifugal Pump

In centrifugal pumps, which have a widespread use due to their low cost, the liquid pressure increases from the pump inlet to the end, that is, to the outlet. It is known that centrifugal pumps, which are preferred due to their simplicity of use, use kinetic energy to move liquids.
