Our GPV range of high quality vortex pumps are designed to suit a range of projects from light industrial and building services, through to commercial and wastewater applications.
What are vortex pumps?
Vortex are a form of submersible pumps used to pump dirty water, including small solids, stormwater and groundwater applications.
Our pumps can successfully transfer water at temperatures of up to 40oC continuous duty, and 80oC intermittent duty.
European designed and using the most advanced technology, our vortex pumps are fitted with chokeless semi-open impellers which facilitates smooth, non-clogging transfer of water enabling the pass of small spherical solids. We can also accommodate for larger flow rate units upon request.
Our vortex pumps are also made from 304 stainless steel, giving it a level of corrosion resistance against typical trade waste and stormwater applications. A 10m power cable comes standard with our GPV pump range.
So why should you choose Global Water for your customized system? Our team of highly trained technicians work closely with clients to develop a complete solution that complies with their KPI requirements. We focus on delivering outcomes that provide the highest efficiency and most cost-effective solution.
The benefits of using a vortex pump
Many submersible water pumps are only designed to be used with clean water. They operate within a closed multi-vane impeller, to pump out the water. However, as liquids and particles are constantly passing through the vanes of the impeller restricting the size of solids that can be pumped without blocking. Over time the clearances become worn and the pump less effective as its job.
Vortex pumps are designed for use with dirty water, as their design reduces the amount of contact the impeller has with the water and solids in suspensions. Instead, the impeller creates a swirling vortex to pump out the water. Wear is therefore greatly reduced and your pump will last for a longer amount of time. Vortex pumps also require little maintenance and are more reliable, making them suitable for stormwater, effluent or trade waste applications, and are frequently used for residential or light commercial settings.
The channel pumps difference
Channel pumps are another design that works well in dirty water applications. A channel impeller has a single spiral or dual vane that pushes discharge flow through the pump using centrifugal force. The large free passage of the channel impeller allows small solids and abrasive particles to pass through the impeller.
