Knowledge & Insights: Centrifugal Pumps

10 Safety Tips For Operating Centrifugal Pumps

Centrifugal pumps are not only the most common pumps used in industrial settings, but they are the most common pump used worldwide. There are several different types of centrifugal pumps, but generally they operate similarly with the ability to handle high flows and pressures. Operating these often large and powerful pumps of course comes with […]

How to Read a Centrifugal Pump Curve

Properly sizing a pump to specific application requirements is a complicated process.  It accounts for many factors including fluid type, elevation changes, length/diameter of pipe, number of joints or bends, and requires some complex equations usually left to system engineers.  If you already have a good idea of your flow and pressure requirements, however, pump […]

Right-Angle Gearbox Pump

This uniquely orientated pump skid pictured below was designed to solve a couple of issues for a company transferring chemical solvents. Anderson Process mounted this Blackmer Pump on its side with a custom bracket built in-house, which allowed the pump suction to be at the top.  This aided with its ability to drain as the […]

Liquid Blending System

Precise control mixing of materials can be a challenging feat. Understanding the chemical compatibility and how the liquid properties will react, blend, and change must be closely monitored. Pictured below are several different pumps and a control system we set up for a customer who needed to meter three liquids: propylene glycol, ethanol, and water […]

Barrier fluid reservoir Tank

Barrier Fluid Reservoir

One of the many reasons mechanical seals may need extra lubrication, include the high viscosity in certain fluids  These pumps and mechanical seals may require the circulation of a clean fluid from an external seal flush. This process lubricates the inner and outer seal faces which separates the pumped fluid from entering the stationary housing […]

How To Prevent Pump Cavitation

WHAT IS PUMP CAVITATION Cavitation is not a new phenomenon that impacts a pump system, but it is an issue that occurs far too often. It occurs when air bubbles are generated inside a pump because of the partial pressure drop of the flowing liquid, resulting in a tiny air bubble. The air bubbles move, […]

Gusher 7550 Centrifugal Pumps with WEG Motors

Here are four of seven Gusher 7550 Centrifugal pumps with WEG motors that we shipped to one of our customers. These pumps were designed for a water-based fluid, but the key here is the length of these pumps. They were custom-made to be +84” in length because of a deep tank they were designed to […]
