Vertical pumps are used to transfer water from underground water reservoirs and deep wells. These pumps are available in different shapes and sizes and each has a different function. But the configuration of all these pumps is vertical and they direct liquids in a vertical direction through the pipe. Vertical pumps are classified in a wide range according to their characteristics. These structural features include the following:
• Operating temperatures from low to high
• Different pressures
• Liquids that transfer (from sea water to acidic liquids, flammable and even chemicals)
Types of vertical pumps in Dubai
There are different types of vertical pumps that we will introduce below:
1. Vertical centrifugal pump
Centrifugal vertical pump is used to move liquids that are corrosive or have debris in them. This pump is designed for other applications such as emptying and transferring liquids from the tank and mixing chemical liquids. A vertical centrifugal pump moves liquids upward by converting rotational kinetic energy into hydrodynamic energy. This type of rotational energy is usually provided by an electric motor. The way the centrifugal pump works is that liquids enter the pump tank and move along a propeller-shaped axis. This propeller shaft rotates at high speed and fluids are directed into the tubes through centrifugal force. The pump housing is designed to contract fluid from the pump inlet, direct it to the impeller shaft, and then transfer the fluid through pipes to the reservoir.
2. Vertical submersible pump
A submersible pump, also known as a well pump, has a hermetic vacuum motor attached to the pump body. This pump has the same function as vertical centrifugal pumps, but it is completely submerged in water. The use of this type of pump is to drain sewage from underground and transfer it upwards. When this vertical floating pump in Dubai reaches the ground level, it becomes clear that the sewage has been completely drained. Because this pump floats on the surface of the liquid instead of going underwater. The important advantage of this pump is the lack of noise and sound pollution.
3. Vertical turbine pump
Vertical turbine pumps, also known as vertical pumps or line shaft pumps, are centrifugal pumps commonly used to move water from underground wells. A vertical turbine pump consists of components such as a motor, a discharge head, one or more pipe columns, a line shaft, a pump shaft, multiple bowls, impellers, and a suction bell. These pumps are designed to transfer clean water from wells or underground tanks. But they are also used in other industries.
4. Vertical sump pump
Vertical sump pumps are one of the single chamber pumps that are suspended in space. Vertical sump pumps are designed in two general forms, semi-open and enclosed. The application of these pumps is in the suction of fluids from wells. The vertical sump pump has a separate discharge pipe and a column of support pipe. The vertical sump pump, like the vertical turbine pumps, is placed on the liquid being pumped. These pumps are designed for pumping clean liquids, liquids with low contamination levels, fibrous slurries and liquids containing large solids from deep tanks.
Application of vertical pump in UAE
As we mentioned in the introduction section, vertical pumps have different shapes and types that are used to pump different liquids. The various applications of these pumps are as follows:
• Pumping contaminated water
• Dewatering of pits
• Oil and gas extraction
• Transfer of liquid fertilizer
• Desalination, etc.
Choosing the right pump is essential to the success of any flow control system. We sell vertical pump packages in Dubai for custom applications used in oil and gas, petrochemical, water and wastewater, mining, power generation and general industries.
