A turbine pump is used to pump water from deep wells, underground aquifers and reservoirs to feed water distribution systems. They can also be used for irrigation and treatment of waste water.
The turbine pump is a centrifugal pump with a pump shaft, an impeller and a motor or engine. It may have multiple impellers, known as stages. Water enters the center or eye of the rotating impeller, where it’s then accelerated and pushed out along the impeller vanes. The turbine pump features low revolutions per minute with a high and constant head.
