Axial-flow pumps and mixed-flow pumps are designed to move very large quantities of water against low (axial) and medium (mixed) heads.
Axial flow impellers discharge fluids parallel to the shaft axis in contrast to radial flow, which pulls fluid into its axis then discharges it out at 90 degrees to the shaft; mixed flow impellers discharge in a conical direction using a combined radial and axial pumping action. Mixed flow pumps can develop a relatively high discharge pressure and still move a large quantity of liquid.
Axial and mixed flow turbines are extremely versatile and can be multi-stage for maximum flexibility both in the initial pump selection and if future system modifications require a change in the pump rating.
Axial and mixed flow turbine pumps can be driven by an above-ground vertical motor, an engine or horizontal motor through a right-angle gear drive, a flat belt pulley or a V-belt pulley connected to an engine.
