Choosing the correct pump for your application can be overwhelming due to the sheer variety available, not to mention the issues with understanding technical terms…

So we’ve decided to create a summary for each pump type, to make your decision easier! This month we’re covering Submersible Pumps, Booster Sets and Progressive Cavity Pumps.

Submersible Pumps

A submersible pump is a self-contained unit with a built-in sealed motor, which pumps effectively when completely submersed in fluid. They are used in a variety of applications including moving sewage, waste water, foul and storm water.

Dura Pump can not only deliver your pump quickly, but also install, maintain, service and repair the system so it stays up and running – ensuring the quality and reliability sustains.

Booster Sets

Booster sets are the solution to achieving a constant, reliable water pressure. They also ensure the pressure is controlled to suit the fluctuations in demand throughout the day which saves water and reduces energy usage.

These pumps are used for pressure boosting in hotels, factories, hospitals, and prisons, providing water at the right pressure at the delivery point – e.g. your production line or shower head!

Dura Pump has a strong track record in the design, build and installation of booster set systems; we adapt and customise them to work perfectly for you. Click here to read about how a booster set was installed just in time to save the water supply of a busy shopping centre.

Progressive Cavity Pumps

Progressive Cavity Pumps (also known as Helical Rotor Pumps) have the main function of transferring fluids progressively, and are generally used for pumping viscous materials and for metering fluids. They are especially effective with shear-sensitive, frothing, abrasive, heterogeneous and viscous liquids.

Dura Pump has strong distributor relationships with most of the world’s most important progressive cavity pump manufacturers, such as Mono, Roto and Seepex, so we can specify and supply your perfect pump.
