What are Submersible Pumps Used for? Find the Best Range at Tribix Today!

Submersible pumps go by more than one name. They are also often called sub pumps or ESPs (electric submersible pumps).  These pumping devices are unlike others, as they have a motor that is hermetically sealed close to the pump body. This means that the pump can be fully submerged in water or fluid without the motor malfunctioning. Regular pumps work by pulling liquid in, whereas a submersible pump does things a little differently. It is submerged in the fluid and then actually pushes the water content to the surface. Such pumps are commonly used in industrial and mining applications, and are available in a variety of sizes or with a variety of capacities attached. Piping connected to the pump will remove water from one area to another with ease.

What applications are submersible pumps typically used in?

  • Sewage pumping.
  • Industrial pumping.
  • Oil industry pumping.
  • Deep well drilling.
  • Slurry pumping.
  • Water extraction for residential, commercial, industrial and municipal applications.
  • Off shore drilling rigs.
  • Mine dewatering.
  • Irrigation systems.
