End suction pumps come in a variety of sizes, materials of construction such as iron, bronze, stainless steel, or corrosion-resistant plastics, and impeller designs to handle everything from water to abrasive slurries.
End suction centrifugal pumps often include one impeller and a volute type casing. Fluid enters on the suction end, moves along the vanes of the impeller, raising its velocity, and into the volute casing where the high velocity is converted into high pressure and discharged out the top.
This style typically features the casing, suction and discharge nozzles, all housed in a single chamber. However, when the casing is split along a vertical or horizontal plane in relation to the impeller, it is known as a split case pump. This type of casing design is preferred in higher flow applications where the impeller can be supported by bearings on both sides.
