How does a centrifugal pump work?
Centrifugal pumps are kinetic machines converting mechanical energy into hydraulic energy through accelerating the liquid by a revolving device - an impeller. The most common type is the volute pump. Fluid enters the pump through the eye of the impeller which rotates at high speed. The vanes of the rotating impeller impart a radial and rotary motion to the liquid, forcing it to the outer periphery of the pump casing where it is collected in the outer part of the pump casing (called volute). A vacuum is created at the impellers eye that continuously draws more fluid into the pump. The fluid is discharged from the centrifugal pump through the discharge connection.
