Eddy Pumps - SUBMERSIBLE PUMPS

Whitewater is an exclusive distributor of EDDY Pump in Western Canada. Eddy Pump builds pumps for high solids pumping, industrial dewatering & dredging equipment solutions.

The EDDY Pump does not have an impeller, but instead a geometrically designed spinning rotor that creates an eddy current. Based on this design a higher suction is created without being restricted by critical tolerances other pumps abide by. Superior design translates to significant maintenance cost reductions and the ability of the EDDY Pump to exceed other pumps in handling viscous fluids with high percentage solids.

Submersible pumps have a wide range of ratings for capacity, pumping speed and energy use. Some of them can be used interchangeably for a variety of applications when pumping thin liquids. More viscous liquids and pumping applications at greater depths require stronger pumps that are designed to enable them to function properly.

Liquids with high solid content, corrosive and abrasive fluids pose a particular problem, as do liquids containing solid material that can cause damage to a pump. Each application poses its own challenges. To ensure you have the right pump for your application, contact a leading submersible pump manufacturer to discuss your needs.

What You Need to Know About Submersible Pumps

A submersible pump, like any other pump, is used to move liquids from one point to another. The major difference between a submersible pump and any other type is that it is completely submerged in the liquid that it is required to pump.

These pumps can be used in many different pumping applications. They also have their advantages and disadvantages, which must be taken into consideration when making a pump selection.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Submersible Pumps

  • 1
    Priming: They don’t have to be primed. They are self-priming because they operate below the surface of the fluid being pumped.
  • 2
    Cavitation: Because they are fully submerged, submersible pumps are not prone to cavitation. This can be a problem with centrifugal pumps and other types of positive displacement pumps.
  • 3
    Efficiency: A submersible pump has the head pressure of liquid on the suction end to help it operate. It doesn’t need to use as much energy in drawing liquid into the pump and is, therefore, more efficient.
  • 4
    Noise: Being submerged, these pumps are very quiet in most applications.
  • 5
    Accessibility: Submersible pumps are often not easily accessible for routine inspection or maintenance, especially in deep well applications. This makes it difficult to perform preventative maintenance and in many applications pumps are left to run until they break down and need to be replaced.
  • 6
    Corrosion: Prolonged exposure to a liquid of any sort will lead to corrosion. Submersible pumps are often used to handle liquids that are corrosive and abrasive. Seals are especially prone to corrosion, which leads to leaks and damage to the motor. To counteract corrosion these pumps need to be made of corrosion-resistant material, which can make them more expensive than other types of pumps of the same capacity.
