Self-priming industrial pumps

Self-priming industrial pumps are essential in many industrial applications.

Pumpsystems self-priming industrial pump

Self-priming industrial pumps are an important component in many industrial applications. These pumps are used to extract and transport liquids and gases from various containers or tanks. They are characterized by their ability to fill themselves with the medium without the need for an external supply.

The self-priming industrial pumps are used in various industries. These include, for example, the chemistry-, groceries- and beverage industry, but also the pharmacy, waste water treatment and many others. They are particularly useful when large quantities of liquids or gases have to be transported over long distances.

About our self-priming industrial pump


pumpsystems wobble ring pump is a self-priming positive displacement pump that is used in many industrial applications. Their functioning is characterized by their high reliability and efficiency off. It can easily Liquids and gases with different viscosities promote and is therefore suitable for a wide range of applications.

The wobble ring pump works on the principle of displacement. A wobble ring that rotates eccentrically in a housing creates a negative pressure. By The medium is sucked in this negative pressure and then conveyed through the housing. This pump is able to fill itself with the medium and does not require an external supply.

Another advantage of the wobble ring pump is its high suction power. It can easily suck in liquids from high or deep containers. This makes it particularly suitable for applications where the medium is not directly above the pump.

The self-priming industrial pump from Pumpsystems is also easy to waiting and to purify. It consists of a few components that are easily accessible and can be replaced quickly. This minimizes downtime and maximizes plant efficiency.

What does self-priming mean?

Self-priming means that a pump is able to suck in the medium to be pumped from a lower level. It can do all this without the need for an additional external suction device. This type of pump is able to generate the necessary vacuum to draw the medium into the pump housing and then deliver it efficiently. Self-priming pumps are particularly useful when the medium to be pumped is below the pump level. But even though a continuous fluid flow must be guaranteed without the need for manual intervention, they are the right choice. This property makes self-priming pumps versatile and suitable for various applications, such as in agriculture, construction or in industry.

How does a self-priming pump work?

A self-priming pump works due to a special mechanism that allows it to draw in water or liquids from a lower position. This mechanism consists of an intake pipe connected to a check valve is equipped.

When the pump is started, it creates a vacuum in the intake pipe. This opens the check valve and allows the pump to transfer the water or liquid into the suction pipe to draw. Once the suction pipe is completely filled, the check valve automatically closes to prevent the liquid from flowing back.

By repeatedly opening and closing the check valve, the pump creates a continuous flow of liquid. This flow is caused by the difference in pressure between the Suction side and the outlet side Maintain the pump.

A self-priming pump is particularly useful in situations in which the medium to be pumped is below pump levels located. It can be used to pump water from wells or other sources without the need for manual pre-filling.

However, it is important to note that self-priming pumps have a limited Conveyor height have. However, this value may vary depending on the model and manufacturer. The higher the difference between pump and liquid source, the more difficult it is for the pump to suck in the medium. In such cases, additional measures may be required, such as using foot valves or placing the pump closer to the fluid source.

Self-priming pumps are usually able to suck in water from a depth of 7 to 9 meters. This makes them ideal for use in various areas such as agriculture, construction and water supply. The maximum Suction height is an important factor when choosing a self-priming pump. It determines how far away the water can be from the pump in order to be sucked in effectively. It is important to consider the specific requirements of the project and choose the right pump accordingly. If you have any questions about choosing the right pump or calculating the maximum suction height, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Which pumps are self-priming?

In addition to the wobble ring pump, there are other types of pumps that are self-priming. These include, for example, the centrifugal pump And the diaphragm pump.

Die centrifugal pump is a widely used pumping system that is used in many different areas of application is used. It works with a rapidly rotating impeller, which uses centrifugal force to transport the medium to the outside. This movement creates a vacuum in the suction pipe, which enables the pump to suck in the medium automatically. The centrifugal pump is particularly suitable for use in areas where high flow rates & medium pressure is required.

Die diaphragm pump On the other hand, works with a movable membrane that pumps the medium from one side to the other. This creates a vacuum on the suction side, which enables the pump to suck in the medium automatically. This type of pump is often used in the food industry, the chemical industry & medical technology, as it is particularly hygienic and precise.

Both pump types have the advantage that they are self-priming and therefore do not require any additional pre-filling or filling. As a result, they are special flexibly & are also used in situations where the medium does not flow to the pump by itself.

However, it is important to note that not all models These types of pumps are automatically self-priming. There are various designs and designs, which may differ in their ability to self-suction. Therefore, before buying a pump, it is advisable to check carefully whether it meets the desired requirements.

Which pump cannot self-suction?

There are a few pump models, which are not self-priming. These pumps rely on the medium being delivered to the pump before the pumping process begins. This pump technology requires a continuous supply of medium in order to be able to work effectively. If the medium is not already available, the pump cannot build up pressure and therefore cannot suction itself.

Basically, there are various models of non-self-priming pumps, including centrifugal pumps, screw pumps, and piston pumps. Each model has specific areas of application and benefits, depending on the requirements of the respective application. However, it is also possible to use these models with various configurations and additives to expand in order to optimize their performance and also make them self-priming.

It is important to select the appropriate pump model according to the specific needs and circumstances of the project in order to ensure efficient and reliable delivery of the medium.
