Immersible Pump Guide
Immersible pumps are a popular choice when looking for a universal pump because they are designed to operate in a dry environment that may become flooded at some point. There is a float switch at one end of the immersible pump that turns off the blower motor to keep water from entering the cooling fan if it is submerged. The opposite end is also closed by a fan and the pump is surrounded by frames and a layer of lubricant to prevent water from entering the engine. This means that the immersible pump can be used in any place where there is a risk of flooding in basements, parking lots under buildings, staircases, and so on. Immersible pumps are more cost-effective for rare floods, but if the motor will be constantly submerged in the water, an immersible pump is a right option.
Immersible Pump Advantages & Applications
In addition to providing peace of mind thanks to its clever design, an immersible water pump is often easier to service, cheaper to buy, and easier to operate. Often, these pumps can handle solids and liquids with ease, allowing for several appropriate situations, such as rainwater drainage. Due to their unique properties, immersible pumps are used in many municipal and industrial sectors, pumping a wide variety of fluids and materials gently and with low pulsation. Our specialists select the appropriate material combinations and individually adapt each pump to local conditions. Through this process, we ensure that immersible pumps are effective in tough applications and achieve the best results in terms of performance, energy efficiency, and low life cycle costs.

Difference Between Immersible Pumps and Submersible Pumps
While the difference is actually pretty distinct between the immersible pump and submersible pump, these words may also be misunderstood. Immersible pumps are complete engine systems and the entire unit can be completely submerged, while immersible pumps are vertically positioned above the liquid with the motor and below the liquid level with the piston end protruding.
Immersible pumps for dry conditions are cost-effective, flood-resistant pumps. Constantly immersed in water, submersible pumps are designed for heavy-duty operation. Before settling on one or the other, make sure to compare the two styles of pumps. When selecting a pump, the circumstances under which it can work need to be taken into consideration. A submersible pump could be a reasonable option if the pump operates underwater. Request a submersible pump if there's just a tiny risk that your pump will be submerged during service.
In water and wastewater applications, submersible pumps are commonly used and their small dimensions and simplicity of operation thanks to optimized float switches make them suitable for such situations. However, as they have normal carbon and ceramic mechanical seals and construction materials are minimal, immersion pumps are not appropriate for use with liquids other than water and are not suitable for use with chemicals or offensive liquids.
Immersible pumps, on the other hand, can be expressly engineered and produced for use in corrosive and violent conditions and are manufactured from several materials, from 316 stainless steel to plastics such as polypropylene and PVDF. Since the motor is above the piston, requirements to accommodate the area, like ATEX zones one and two, can be supplied. It is possible to supply columns up to six meters high, or even shorter pumps will also pump up to six meters.
