Screw Centrifugal Impeller

Hidrostal is the inventor of the screw centrifugal impeller and is totally dedicated to its development and improvement. For more than 30 years a continuous research and development programme has given Hidrostal a technology advantage in handling difficult materials.  This has lead to a family of pumps being developed with variations of the screw centrifugal impeller to solve specific pumping problems.

Key features of Screw Centrifugal Impeller are:

  • Energy savings of up to 50% compared with conventional centrifugal pumps.  Same high efficiency maintained in Hidrostal’s immersible, submersible and end suction pumps
  • Non-clog impeller suitable for pumping high consistency media and large diameter solids beyond the capacity of centrifugal and recessed impeller pumps
  • Easy adjustment of impeller clearance permits continuity of original high-efficiency performance
  • Optional renewable liner to reduce maintenance costs when pumping abrasive media.
  • Low N.P.S.H characteristics
  • Available in choice of materials
