Submersible pumps

Description

A submersible pump is a centrifugal pump, which is attached to an electric motor and operates while submerged in water. The sealed electric motor spins a series of impellers. Each impeller in the series forces water through a diffuser into the eye of the one above it. In a typical 4 inch submersible pump, each impeller will add a approximately 9 psi of pressure. for example, a typical 10-stage pump will develop a pressure of about 90 psi at its outlet (i.e.10 impellers x 9 psi).
