In this article, I will talk about two types of pumps.
Externally, Peripheral Pumps and Centrifugal Pumps generally look alike. What sets them aside is the internal construction. For Peripheral Pumps, their internal components work together to develop high discharge heads at really low flow rates. Peripheral pumps require careful calculations of the maximum pressures they can handle which can develop at zero flow conditions. The good thing is that extreme electrical and pressure overloads are easily prevented by suitable bypasses and relief valves featured on the pump. Extra consideration is also required in specifying control valve pressure drops due to the characteristic steep Head-Capacity curve.
The centrifugal pump is the most frequently used process pump utilized in the majority of installations. are unanimously used because their buying price and maintenance cost are relatively very low. They are simple to operate, they provide a non-pulsating flow that is easy to control using a number of pre-set ranges, and they are suitable for clean, abrasive, corrosive or non-lubricating fluids. Lastly, are generally quiet, adaptable to motor, turbine or engine drives and can be obtained in a wide capacity-head range to handle fluids varying in temperature.
Eventually, I made my pick, now pick yours.
Which pump should you buy between centrifugal and peripheral?
Answer: The one thing to keep in mind is that wattage matters, the higher the watts the high the pressure served. It doesn’t really matter because the centrifugal pump is highly recommended for pumping clean, non-aggressive water. The pump range is reliable, maintenance-free and widely used in the domestic and civil sectors for water distribution in combination with small pressure and flow controlled applications, used in general and for garden irrigation. The pump must be installed in a closed, protected environment, avoiding direct rain or water spray.
On the other hand, the peripheral pump is recommended for pumping chemically non-aggressive clean water containing no abrasive particles. Suitable for reliable, simple and economical domestic use. Particularly suitable in combination with pressure or flow control for garden irrigation
