Multistage Centrifugal Pump
In centrifugal pumps with multiple stages several impellers are arranged in series. This allows the pump to overcome large differences in head.
It is a centrifugal pump with four stages that is delivered ready for installation, mounted on a plate. The centrifugal pump is installed in the supply unit with just a few simple steps and connected via hoses with quick-release couplings and attached with clamping levers. For power supply, the pump is connected to the drive unit with a V-belt. The pump speed is reduced by the transmission ratio of the belt.
The pressures at the inlet and outlet of the centrifugal pump are recorded with sensors. The measured values are read from digital displays on the supply unit and can be transmitted simultaneously via USB directly to a PC, where they can be analysed using the included software.
