Axial Pump

Written by Matt Milbury. Posted in Pump

An Axial Pump is one where the pump case is split parallel to pump shaft.  An axial centrifugal pump is one in which the pressure is developed by the propelling or lifting action of the vanes of the propeller on the liquid rather than the centrifugal forces on the vanes of the impeller.

Axial  flow  pumps  are  sometimes  called  propeller  pumps  because  they  operate essentially the same as the propeller of a boat.
