A centrifugal pump is a rotodynamic pump that uses a rotating impeller to increase the pressure of a fluid. Centrifugal pumps are commonly used to move liquids through a piping system. The fluid enters the pump impeller along or near to the rotating axis and is accelerated by the impeller, flowing radially outward into a diffuser or volute chamber, from where it exits into the downstream piping system.
A centrifugal pump works on the principle of conversion of the kinetic energy of a flowing fluid (velocity pressure) into static pressure. This action is described by Bernoulli's principle. The rotation of the pump impeller accelerates the fluid as it passes from the impeller eye (centre) and outward through the impeller vanes to the periphery. As the fluid exits the impeller, a proportion of the fluid momentum is then converted to (static) pressure. Typically the volute shape of the pump casing, or the diffuser vanes assist in the energy conversion. The energy conversion results in an increased pressure on the downstream side of the pump, causing flow.
Centrifugal pumps are classified as self-priming if they have the capability to handle liquids, gases and liquid/gas mixtures.
