Hydraulic driven centrifugal pumps
Hydraulic driven centrifugal pumps are centrifugal pumps with a hydraulic motor as the prime mover. Hydraulic motors are light weight and small compare to diesel engines or electric motors. Therefore a hydraulic driven centrifugal pump is easy to handle and light weight. By adjusting the hydraulic flow towards the hydraulic motor the speed of the centrifugal pump can be adjusted continiously. This is ideal for a precise control of flow and pressure.
Some example applications:
- Priming product lines in oil storage or oil refineries.
- Booster pump.
- Emptying tanks or sewers.
- Back up pump in a production plant.
Hydraulic driven pumps can be delivered with an ATEX certificate which is needed when pumping in a explosive environment.
