The term centrifugal pump refers to a broad category of pumps. These pumps can vary in size, capacity, and ability. They can be used for a wide variety of applications but are primarily used to move fluid (of course). You’ll find centrifugal pumps in several forms, like standard end-suction, submersible, and self-priming.
Centrifugal pumps primarily move fluid by using centrifugal force (hence the name) which generates the velocity necessary to move the liquid. The force is generated in tandem by the pump’s volute and impeller. Fluid enters the pump through a suction nozzle, into the eye of the impeller. The impeller vanes catch the fluid and rotate it. The fluid exits the pump through the discharge. As the fluid leaves the pump it’s under greater pressure than when it entered. That’s basically how centrifugal pumps work in a nutshell.
