Choosing a pump

Points to consider

When choosing a pump, it's worth considering ...

  • Volume of each batch: How quickly do you want to move each batch?
  • Number of batches to be pumped in one work session: Make sure the pump has the capacity to get the job done in time.
  • Distance and head against which the liquid will be pumped: [By 'head' we mean the height to which the product will be pumped.] The greater the distance and the higher the head, the slower the flow. The rated capacity of pumps is for ideal conditions, over a short distance and with minimal delivery at the head.
  • Type of product: Is it free-flowing or viscous? Does it contain any suspended solids? Download our handy Pump Guide [1.61MB] to help you identify the suitable pump for your product. Is your product hot?
  • Self-priming: Is it an advantage for the pump to be self-priming, i.e., one that sucks the product into the pump? Most of our pumps are self-priming and also have reversible motors and can be pumped in both directions.
  • Variable speed: Is variable speed an advantage?
