How does a centrifugal pump work?
How does a centrifugal pump work, exactly? In a nutshell, it works in a fairly simple, mechanical manner by creating pressure between the pump inlet to the pump outlet, which is what forces the water or fluid through your application. To get a little deeper, a rotating impeller inside the casing and shaft transfers energy from the electric motor to the fluid pressure - through the forces on the suction side and also, of course, centrifugal force.
The impeller is the heart of the centrifugal pump, and it's crucial that you rely on a brand that makes them to last. Luckily for you, that's all you'll find in the 4 Pumps range - impellers that will continue to make your centrifugal pump a truly reliable workhorse of your home or installation, day in and day out. The impeller is the important moving part of the centrifugal pump, which is connected to the motor. Basically, it spins, forcing the liquid to the centre and guiding it into the vanes, where it is then spun out - creating the flow pressure by centrifugal force.

Here at 4 Pumps, we have a huge range of centrifugal pumps for a huge range of applications, across the domestic market but also the building, food, marine industries and much, much more, featuring brands we truly respect for their quality and reputations like Davey, Onga, Sparkle and more.

The most common centrifugal pumps
So what's the most common centrifugal pump across the vast and various applications? That would be the good old, standard and workmanlike single stage centrifugal pump, designed for the efficient and reliable high flow and low pressure transfer of fluids. If higher pressure is what your application calls for, you'll be looking at a multistage or perhaps a turbine centrifugal pump - and we have plenty of top quality ones for you to pick from here at 4 Pumps.
Single and centrifugal multistage pumps make up the vast majority of the pumps seen and used across all domestic, commercial and industrial sectors - not to mention agriculture, municipal applications, power generation and many, many other industries. The common factor is the impeller, driven by a shaft located inside a casing and assisted by the vanes. Under suction, fluids flow in, the impeller applies its velocity by centrifugal force and this pressure energy or head max is what does the hard work for your application. Simple!
Manage every type of job with centrifugal pumps
The thing that makes centrifugal pumps so popular and useful is that they can apply to both high or low rates of flow, controllable pressure and reliability through the simplicity of the design. In essence, it means an enormous quantity of fluid and water pumping applications can be handled with a centrifugal pump. We're talking about things like moving, removing, transporting and even elevating fluids - and no matter the precise specifics of your particular application, there is a pumping product at 4 Pumps that will do the job.
No matter where you are in the world, you're very likely to come across the work of a centrifugal pump eventually. That's because these handy little inventions are seen in just about every industry on earth - from the treatment of wastewater and even acids, the removal of water from ships, the elevation of sewage, the purification of water, the bleaching process for food processing - and literally hundreds of other applications.
Those hard-working centrifugal pumps
Want more applications for centrifugal pumps? We're talking mining, irrigation, chemical processing - the list really is almost endless. That's because centrifugal force is truly the guiding principle of just about every sort of pump that is designed to move liquids - when you're talking about non-submersible, multistage or single stage pumps, the catch-all industry term for that is 'centrifugal pump'. But that doesn't mean there aren't a huge array of brands, models and styles of centrifugal pumps - and we have the best at 4 Pumps.
