What are submersible Pumps? Where we can use them.

Submersible pumps are among the most common and cost effective pumps in general use. Also known as sump pumps, the pumps have a hermetically sealed motor close-coupled to the pump body and the whole assembly is submerged in the fluid to be pumped.

The main advantage of submersible pump are that they prevents pump cavitation, a problem associated with a high elevation difference between pump and the fluid surface, they don't require priming and they are out of sight and by definition don't take up space.

Submersible pumps push fluid to the surface as opposed to equivalent surface mounted pumps such as jet pumps that have to lift fluids (self-prime). Submersibles are more efficient than self-priming pumps.

There is a wide selection available for different applications including low flow, high flow, low head or high head. Also available in Multiple stage submersible pumps are available for lowered down a borehole and most typically used in industrial water extraction, water wells and oil wells.

Submersible pumps are used for a wide range of applications such as building services, commercial, domestic, municipal, rural, general industrial pumping, slurry pumping, sewage pumping, Single stage pumps are used for drainage, rainwater re-use applications.

Other uses for sump pumps include sewage treatment plants, seawater handling, water well and deep well drilling, offshore drilling rigs, artificial lifts, mine dewatering, irrigation systems and pond filters.

Submersible pumps are most commonly used in stormwater removal, sewage removal and similar applications but are also found a number of more specialised roles such as coolant and lubrication circulation and seawater pumping.
