Vortex pump

  • This is a cross section of a Blackmeer. vortex pump. This type of pump is used for excessive solids in the pumping liquid.
  • The impeller is recessed into the volute so the incoming fluid, containing the solids, does not cause an impeller wear problem.
  • Like all vortex pumps, a very low efficiency design, but practical in many applications.
