Priming aid for horizontal pumps in special applications
Centrifugal pumps offer many advantages to users. For reasons inherent in their design, there are, however, some particularities that must be taken into account. Thus, horizontal centrifugal pumps are not able to draw the liquid from a deeper level. If the use of a vertical pump is not feasible or desirable, a priming pot can be installed between the suction pipe and the horizontal pump. This provides self-priming capability and allows horizontal centrifugal pumps to be upgraded to self-priming pumps.
