Canadian Pump Solutions Pumping - Playing in the mud

Canadian Pump Solutions Water pumps are commonly purchased or rented on construction sites for dewatering and removing excess water from site. In years like this in areas of Canada water can build up due to heavy rains or from a high-water table, and Canadian Pump Solutions Water pumps responds immediately to allow you to move the water quickly to minimize costly downtime. Canadian Pump Solutions Water sizes the pump to the application and then ensures the pumps are suitable for the required application come in three main types and can be electric, diesel-powered or hydraulic drives.

Water Pump Types

There are two basic types of water pumps: centrifugal and positive displacement such as the PD 75 or PD 100 that Canadian Pump Solutions distributes in Canada for Selwood.

A centrifugal water pump uses a rotating impeller (Vortex Impeller in the Selwood S series) to move fluids or water into the pump and pressurize the discharge. Canadian Pump Solutions Water pumps Centrifugal water pumps come in several different sizes and pressure capabilities, including standard, trash, and submersible models. All liquids can be pumped using centrifugal water pumps, even those with low viscosity. These pumps work well with thin liquids and offer high flow rates.

Canadian Pump Solutions Selwood PD series Positive displacement water pumps deliver a fixed amount of flow through the mechanical contraction and expansion of a flexible diaphragm. Positive displacement pumps are used in many industries that manage high-viscosity liquids and where small traces and sensitive solids may be present. They are recommended for applications requiring a combination of low flow and high pressure.

Considerations for Centrifugal Water Pumps

Centrifugal pumps are used in many construction and water system applications, in addition to dewatering. They are employed to pump water supplies in buildings and are compatible with pneumatic systems and where no suction lift is required. They are also used to pump water from domestic wells and to boost pressure in water intake lines. Centrifugal pumps can provide a continuous pressure source for fire protection systems, and they can serve as sump pumps in either vertical or horizontal configurations.

There are several important factors to consider when providing the team at Canadian Pump Solutions the required information to select the proper a water pump and equipment for your project site:

  • Power Available on Site for Electric Pumps if desired
  • Sound level requirements – Sound attenuation
  • Required flow rate
  • Backup pump requirements
  • Motor type/fuel type preference: electric, diesel, or hydraulic.
  • Head Pressure, total head discharge is known and if not elevation changes and distance with consideration to crossing roads or filtration required on site so any line restrictions can be calculated into the pump curve calculation and proper pump selection.
