In addition to self-priming model, MP also provides standard horizontal end suction single stage centrifugal pumps.. Models use open vane style and enclosed style impellers. Centrifugals convert driver energy to kinetic energy in a liquid by accelerating it to the outer rim of a revolving impeller. Since the amount of energy given to the liquid corresponds to the velocity at the impeller vane tip, the faster the impeller revolves (or the bigger the impeller is), the higher the velocity of the liquid at the vane tip and the greater the energy transferred to the liquid. In comparison to positive displacement devices, centrifugals are quieter and require no relief valve to protect the pumps from pressure build-up.
MP standard end suction centrifugal models are specially designed for hot water, hot oil, chemical and circulating applications. Hot oil pumps are capable of withstanding up to 650 degrees F (343 degrees C) while hot water can be transferred using hot water models up to 400 degrees F (204 degrees C). Our chemical transfer full size and fractional CHEMFLO models come in a wide variety of sizes with a selection of drive, coupling and mounting features allowing users to maximize fit and efficiencies. Circulator centrifugal pumps are often found in water, coolant and fuel transfer applications in large and small vehicles such as motor coaches and school buses.
