Submersible Pumps For Borehole Applications
The most well known application for submersible pumps is for boreholes. Boreholes are tunnels or shafts that are dug into the ground to extract a liquid most commonly water or oil. Once a borehole has been dug some means however needs to be used in the extraction process and this is where submersible pumps come into the equation. As the name suggests, submersible pumps can be totally immersed in a liquid without interfering with its operation in extracting that liquid.
Traditionally manual pumps were used in the extraction of these liquids from below the earth’s soil. However, this has become an ineffective solution as the process is time consuming and laborious. Submersible pumps take all the back breaking work out of extracting liquids from the earth and make the process much faster than could previously be achieved. This means that the use of submersible pumps allows more liquid to be extracted in shorter periods of time improving the profitably of removing the substances from beneath the earth’s crust. It is very important in choosing submersible pumps to ensure that you are investing in a quality product.
Cheaper submersible pumps will not be as reliable and can breakdown regularly. Not only can this down time eat into the efficiency that provides you with more profitability but you will also need to shell out money to repair the equipment, pay for parts or even the replacement of the entire unit. It is also advisable that you have your submersible pumps professionally installed when using them in boreholes. This installation should include the electrical supply to the equipment as well as the pipes that are used to deliver the liquid being extracted to ground level.
