Side Channel Pumps
Side channel designs fill the hydraulic performance void between positive displacement pumps and centrifugal pumps. Fully open “star” impellers interact with the side channel casing creating an intense transfer of energy to the pumped liquid or liquid / gas mixture. The corresponding pressure increase (pump head) equals 5 to 10 times the amount generated by a similar size centrifugal pump at the same RPM. Additionally‚ the centrifugal effect of the impeller combined with the unique SERO internal flow patterns‚ allow our pumps to effectively handle fluids with gas entrainment of up to 50% and also be self-priming. All this in one compact package!
Colfax Fluid Handling has partnered with SERO PumpSystems‚ the world's only exclusive manufacturer of side channel pumps‚ to provide our commercial marine customers with the unique advantages of this pump technology.
