The PN-series is a submersible semi-vortex pump designed for handling wastewater and liquid carrying small solid matters. It is made of resin and 304 stainless steel and excellent in corrosion-resistance. The semi-vortex pump design with moderate solids passage provides efficient performance for versatile applications. Liquid paraffin is used for the lubricating oil, which widens the application of the pump to decorative waterfalls, fishponds, aquaculture, etc.
The benefit of a vortex impeller over a channel impeller is the minimized risk of clogging. The vortex impeller creates a revolving mass of water which forms a whirlpool. A whirlpool is a funnel shaped opening is created downward from the water surface. It can be developed by water flowing out of a small opening in the bottom of a basin, a reservoir or by a pump. Impellers creating this Vortex are called vortex impellers. The benefit of a vortex impeller over a channel impeller is the minimized risk of clogging. A Vortex impeller is also a better choice when the pumped liquid has a high content of sand. The efficiency of a pump with a vortex impeller is typically lower than a pump with a channel impeller.
