The Difference Between Submersible and Immersible Water Pumps

Immersible pumps have a motor built to be able to continue running in an uncommon event where it may become submerged, but they are not designed to be submerged on a daily basis. These motors are designed to operate in a dry environment and can be retrofitted where a vertical solid shaft motor was previously used. For pumps designed for submersible conditions,

Best Pumps, Highest Quality

Pump Solutions #1 Corp carries the leading brands in immersible pumps, including Garbarino and AMT.  Immersible pumps are designed for pumping coolants, cutting oils, or lubrication fluids for multiple applications.

Immersible vs. Submersible Pumps

Immersible and submersible pumps are built for different applications. Submersible pumps are built to be very heavy-duty, but are expensive. Immersible pumps are cost-effective, but are built for lighter applications.

Instead of the oil reservoir found in submersible pumps, immersible pumps have a drive endplate packed with moisture-resistant grease. Compared to submersible pumps, immersible pumps are generally most cost effective to maintain, fix, purchase, and operate. 

Submersible 
  • Municipal and industrial wastewater markets use submersible motors
  • Enclosed non-ventilated TENV motors
  • Wet and dry pit applications
  • Wet pit motors run continuously while submerged and use effluent cooling
  • Cast iron frames and end plates
  • Option of getting explosion proof moto design
  • Protective against  epoxy filled, non-wicking cable cap
  • Standard length 25-30 feet
  • Keeps water out with an oil filled chamber and mechanical seal
  • Moisture monitoring probe
  • Mainly used for applications where the motor will be submerged at all times
         Immersible       
  • Specifically designed to be operated in a dry environment
  • TENV enclosures
  • Sealing system to allow submerged operation at a depth of 30 ft for two weeks
  • Explosion proof style conduit box
  • Two normal closed thermostats
  • Motor space heaters
  • Regreaseable lubrication system
  • Cost effective 


Choosing the Right Pump

When choosing a pump, it’s important to take into consideration the conditions it will be operating in. If the pump has the possiblitiy of being submerged, an immersible pump may be the right choice. However, if the pump will be continuously submerged, a submersible pump is probably the right choice.
