All CURO PUMPS products are 100% made in South Africa through the entire chain of design, prototyping, casting, machining, assembly, testing and installation. Our entire range of in-house developed centrifugal pumps are designed to withstand the harsh conditions found in Africa.
We are also one of the few specialists who service fittings for slurry pump applications.
CURO PUMPS provides services to all business sectors requiring massive hydraulic work including mining, agriculture, heavy industry, chemical, municipal water supply and firefighting. Our customers include leading mining companies, international corporations and local authorities in different countries.
A pump is a device that moves fluids (liquids or gases), or sometimes slurries, by mechanical action. Pumps can be divided into three main groups based on the method they use to move liquids: direct-stroke, positive-displacement, and gravity pumps.
Pumps use a mechanism (usually reciprocating or rotating) and use energy to perform mechanical work in moving fluids. Pumps are powered by many energy sources including manual operation, electricity, motors or wind power. They are available in many sizes, from microscopic for use in medical applications to large industrial pumps.
Mechanical pumps are used in a variety of applications such as well water pumping, aquarium filtration, pond filtration and aeration, in the automotive industry for water cooling and fuel injection, in the power industry for pumping oil and natural gas, or to power cooling towers.In medical technology, pumps are used for biochemical processes in drug development and manufacture and as an artificial replacement for body parts, in particular the artificial heart and penis prosthesis.
Single-stage pump: If only one impeller rotates in a housing, it is called a single-stage pump.
Double/multi-stage pump: If two or more impellers rotate in one housing, this is called a double/multi-stage pump.
Many different types of chemical and biomechanical pumps have evolved in biology, and biomimetics is sometimes used to design new types of mechanical pumps.
centrifugal pumps are a subclass of dynamic axisymmetric work intake turbomachines.Centrifugal pumps are used to move fluids by converting rotational kinetic energy into the hydrodynamic energy of fluid flow. Torque usually comes from a motor or electric motor. Fluid enters the pump impeller along or near the axis of rotation and is accelerated by the impeller, flowing radially outward into a diffuser or volute chamber (casing) from which it exits.
Common applications include pumping water, sewage, oil and petrochemicals; A centrifugal fan is commonly used to implement a vacuum cleaner. The inverse function of the centrifugal pump is a turbine that converts the potential energy of water pressure into mechanical rotational energy.
