Vertical Multi-Stage Pumps
Multistage pumps are available in a number of forms. A common distinction is between vertical and horizontal multi-stage pumps. Vertical multistage pumps can be placed into one-pipe systems or on other types of foundation and have a number of uses within industry. For example a vertical multistage pump could be used as part of a pump system for moving water or chemicals around. These types of multistage pumps can be seen across a range of industrial settings, as well as in other places. For instance, a vertical multi-stage pump may be utilised by a farm that is undergoing an irrigation process or even by a golf course.
Depending on the manufacturer, some vertical pumps come with differing numbers of stages. The idea is that the company orders a pump with the right number of stages for the job the pump is needed for; for example, the number of stages affects the pressure on the water and is an issue a company should consider before installing a vertical pump. Other forms of pumps vary according to their internal parts. For instance, some are fitted with an E-motor, which boasts frequency control.
