Straight Centrifugal Pumps
Part of the larger family of centrifugal pumps, straight centrifugal pumps use an impeller to draw chemical or liquid flow in, move it through a volute (a spiral funnel through which the flow moves), and then into the given system. These pumps are most commonly used in large industrial settings such as chemical and petrochemical plants, and sewage and water treatment plants. Variations of the straight centrifugal pump include the pedestal pump, sanitary centrifugal pump and multistage water pump. Material construction typically consists of cast iron, aluminum, stainless steel or brass.
