Axial Flow Pump

An axial flow pump, often referred to as an impeller pump is a pump with an impeller in a pipe casing. The impeller of the pump is motor or engine driven with the rotation of the pump propeller allows the fluid being pumped to move axially along the pipe.

Axial pumps are used where a high discharge is required with low pressure, commonly used by municipal councils to power industrial plants, sewage, stormwater, drainage, for dewatering and irrigation systems.

When comparing axial pumps to centrifugal pumps and axial pump draws the fluid into their axis and the impeller is used to push the water to the discharge side of the pump. A centrifugal pump uses an impeller that rotates to create a vaccum in the pump to move the fluid through the pump to the discharge point.
