Multistage water pumps are designed for clear fluid transfer through several impellers, or stages, as they are also referred to. Whereas most water pumps are manufactured with a single impeller, the addition of multiple stages allows multistage pumps to generate higher levels of water pressure efficiently. Whether you need a water booster to overcome low water pressure or a pump for water irrigation and supply purposes, we are sure to have the right pump for your needs.

Multistage Pumps – FAQs

A multistage pump works using multiple impellers or stages and as the water passes through each stage it continues to be pressurised. This means that multistage pumps are highly effective in increasing water pressure in comparison to single impeller units.

These pumps are used when sufficient water pressure and supply are needed, for example, in high-rise buildings with a large water output and sprinkler systems. They are also used in firefighting when an immediate and highly pressurised water supply is paramount.

Although some models have self-priming capabilities, this is not true of all multistage pumps. This feature depends on the model you opt for.

A balance piston, or balance drum, is used in centrifugal multistage pumps to reduce and balance the axial thrust created by the impellers. As there are several impellers on a multistage pump, this thrust needs to be offset for the pump to operate properly. This is also particularly important for the longevity of the pump. In multistage pumps without a balance piston, the thrust is usually balanced through the specific arrangement of the impellers.

Unfortunately, there is no single answer when it comes to deciding between a single-phase or a three-phase pump. This depends on preference and the pumping requirements, which are specific to the user. For smaller applications like homes and single office units, a single-phase pump should be sufficient. However, for larger applications with a heavier demand, like industrial, commercial and agriculture spaces, a three-phase pump might be the preferred choice.

All that differs between the two is the orientation. A horizontal multistage pump, as indicated by the name, is arranged in a horizontal line whereas a vertical multistage pump is vertically aligned. Deciding between the two most often comes down to space availability as opposed to features and capabilities, with vertical pumps being the preferred choice when space is limited. However, this difference in direction means that whilst vertical pumps are easier to install, their maintenance is more difficult. The reason is that the motor will need to be removed prior to its inspection. Horizontal pumps are easier to maintain but their installation process is more difficult as they need to be mounted into position. Be sure to speak to an expert multistage pump supplier who can guide you throughout the process and evaluate your property if needed.
