Immersible Pump

Differences between submersible and submersible water pumps

Submersible pumps are cost-effective, flood-proof pumps designed for dry environments. Submersible pumps are constantly immersed in water and produced for heavy tasks. Before making a decision about choosing one or the other, compare both types of pumps.

When choosing a pump, consider the conditions under which it will operate. If the pump will work under water, a submersible pump may be the right choice. If it is only possible that the pump will be submerged during operation, order a submersible pump!

Submersible pumps

Install submersible pumps vertically for best performance
Submersible pumps have been equipped with a motor capable of continuing to work in the rare event of flooding. It is important that all users understand that these models are not intended for everyday operation underwater or in sewage.

Some submersible pumps are designed to work in dry conditions. These products should be installed where a full shaft vertical motor was previously used. Do you think these pumps may be right for you? You're on the right track if you need a pumpable product:

  • Coolants
  • Cutting oils
  • Lubricating fluids

Submersible pumps, in turn, are designed to immerse in ponds, fountains, waterfalls, septic tanks, wells and irrigation systems to help pump liquids. The pump type you choose depends entirely on the work you need to do!

There are many leading submersible pump brands with their valuable benefits, including:

  • Versatility
  • Profitability
  • Dry application design
  • Flood prevention
  • Explosion proof

Instead of the oil tank located in submersible pumps, submersible pumps have a drive plate filled with moisture resistant grease. Compared to submersible pumps, submersible pumps are usually the most cost-effective to maintain, repair, purchase and operate.

The submersible motor can run in flooded conditions, submerged up to 30 feet for two weeks. The proven concept combines the safety of a submarine with the ease of maintenance of a finished shelf motor. The basic design includes the highest quality TECB motor with inverter (fully enclosed, cooled by a blower). If the motor is submerged, the blower will switch off without affecting the main motor. During immersion, the media cools the engine just like a real underwater engine. A special cable box was used to prevent water leaks into the motor. The engine has been designed to prevent water infiltration along the shaft and into the engine using a patented hydro-seal design.

Immersible Motors

On the other hand, submersible motors are specially designed to work in a dry environment that can flood under unusual circumstances. The submersible design of one company was developed for the end user who needed a more cost-effective alternative to the more expensive, oversized submarine engines used in continuous operation in the air.

Dip designs utilize TENV housings in smaller frames and fully enclosed blower cooled (TEBC) housings in larger frames. They have a sealing system that allows reliable operation for two weeks, submerged under a maximum depth of 30 feet of water. The submersible structure has been proven by extensive testing, including disassembly and inspection to ensure structure dryness and integrity.

The TEBC design operates continuously in the air and has a separate 1/2 HP motor driven by an external fan for constant speed cooling. A float switch provided by the end user shuts down the blower motor if the water reaches a level near the cooling fan. The opposite end of the drive is completely closed, and the fan and blower motor are mounted separately to ensure that moisture does not get into the motor from the opposite end of the drive. These engines are also built from precision machined cast iron frames and end plates with grooves and O-rings to prevent water from entering the engine.
