Progressing Cavity, Centrifugal, and Self-Priming Industrial Pumps

Progressing Cavity Pumps


Progressing cavity pumps are commonly used to pump:

  • Sludges
  • Slurries
  • Viscous liquids
  • Food products
  • Mud and concrete
They excel at smooth, low-shear pumping.


  • Steady Flow: The liquid moves in a smooth, constant stream.
  • Handles Thick Liquids: Great for a low sheer application like dewatering and barite recovery.
  • Uses: Often seen in oil, food, and wastewater industries.


  • Gentle Movement: It doesn’t harm sensitive liquids.
  • Less Clogging: Solids and particles in the liquid won’t easily stop this pump.
Industrial Pumps

Efficient Fluid Extraction

Self-priming pumps efficiently draw fluid from sources such as wells or sumps without requiring a separate priming tank.

Versatile Applications

Ideal for installations where the pump is situated below the fluid level, these pumps come in various configurations to handle a wide range of fluids.

Intuitive Mechanism

Their operation is comparable to drinking a thick shake with a straw; they eliminate air first and then move the liquid, ensuring smooth performance.

Integrated Features

With the integrated air separator & check valve system, centrifugal pumps automatically reprime & evacuate air from the suction line before operation.

Centrifugal Pumps


Centrifugal pumps have many industrial applications, including:

  • Transferring water, oils, and chemicals
  • Circulating water in heating and cooling systems
  • Moving liquids through pipelines
  • Feeding water to boilers and condensers
  • Transferring corrosive fluids


  • Simple Design: These pumps have few parts, making them easy to maintain.
  • High Flow Rates: They can move a lot of liquid quickly.
  • Uses: Common in industries like water treatment and chemical processing.


  • Efficient: They use energy well, which can save money.
  • Versatile: Can handle various liquids, from water to some chemicals.

Industrial pumps are crucial for moving liquids and slurries, as water treatment, wastewater management, food processing, manufacturing, factories, plants, and worksites.


Centrifugal pumps, progressing cavity pumps, and self-priming pumps are the main types of industrial pumps, each functioning differently to transfer fluids effectively.


Centrifugal pumps utilize rotational energy to transfer fluids and are suitable for various applications due to their versatility and efficiency.


Progressing cavity pumps and self-priming pumps offer unique advantages and are ideal for specific applications, providing tailored solutions depending on the fluid transfer requirements.

Self-Priming Pumps


Self-priming centrifugal pumps are ideal for:
  • Draining water or liquids from tanks and sumps
  • Transferring liquids over long distances
  • Applications where the pump may need to reprime frequently
  • Situations where the pump may run dry temporarily

They provide versatility for pumping fluids from depths.


  • Starts Easily: It doesn’t need to be filled with liquid before starting.
  • Handles Mixed Fluids: Good for liquids with some gas or air.
  • Uses: Popular in industries with liquids that have bubbles, like some chemical processes.


  • Less Work: You can skip filling it up to start.
  • Reliable: It can start and stop often without problems.
3″ And 4″ Super Mak Self-Priming Pumps


Self-priming pumps are engineered to draw fluid from sources like wells or sumps without requiring a separate priming tank, simplifying installation and operation.


These pumps are particularly ideal for scenarios where the pump is situated below the fluid level, offering versatility in deployment across different applications.


Their operational mechanism is comparable to drinking a thick shake with a straw, wherein they first eliminate air before efficiently moving the liquid, ensuring smooth & uninterrupted operation.


Equipped with an integrated air separator and check valve system, self-priming centrifugal pumps can automatically reprime and evacuate air from the suction line before operation.
