A submersible pump is a type of pump that is designed to be submerged in the liquid to be pumped. The pumps can be used in many different situations. Submersible pumps have a unique design that enables them to pump from great depths as the pump can be submerged in the liquid to be pumped and can be very effective at removing liquid even in harsh conditions. In this text, we will explore what submersible pumps are, how they work, and different applications for the pumps.

What is a submersible pump

Submersible pumps are pumps used to pump out water from e.g. deep ditches and quarries, or to drain water that accumulates due to precipitation. In contrast to conventional pumps, submersible pumps can be submerged in the liquid they are pumping. The pumps are designed to handle dirty water and harsh conditions.

Audex submersible pumps are highly reliable. They require little maintenance and are built to last, with robust materials that can withstand wear and tear. This means you can rely on your pump to keep working year after year, without the need for costly repairs or replacements.

Popular applications

The applications for submersible pumps can vary. The pumps work well for pumping everything from pools of water to wells and slurry, making submersible pumps a great tool to have in a mine or plant.

One of the most typical applications for a submersible pump in the mining industry is the removal of water from construction sites, mine galleries or tunnels. In mining operations, there will often be a risk of challenges with tunnels or mine galleries flooding or encountering challenges during harsh weather conditions and the build-up of water masses or slurry. A submersible pump can be used to pump out this water and ensure that workers can continue working in a dry and safe place.

Submersible pumps can also be used to handle water coming from boreholes or wells. If you have a well that’s producing too much water, a submersible pump can help drain the water and reduce the risk of damage to equipment and facilities. Furthermore, submersible pumps can also be used to handle wastewater and process water. The process of extracting minerals and metals from rocks can often lead to the formation of large volumes of waste water. Submersible pumps can be used to pump this waste out of the production areas and to a waste treatment station.

Submersible pumps are highly efficient and can pump large volumes of liquid in a short time. This makes them a great choice for contractors and businesses that need to move large volumes of fluid efficiently and quickly.
