12 Volt Pumps

A reliable source for 12 Volt Pumps information and leading 12 Volt Pumps Companies & Manufacturers.

Centrifugal pumps transport liquids by using pressure. Because they are relatively uncompressible, the liquids are not condensed or pressurized; instead they are imparted with centrifugal force, the force that causes substances to move away from their center of rotation. Read More…

12 Volt Pumps A 12 volt pump uses centrifugal force to increase the pressure of a liquid by converting mechanical energy into rotational kinetic energy.

12 volt pumps are constructed out of aluminum, cast iron or stainless steel though some models have plastic housings. Because of the low amount of power these pumps use (less than one horsepower), the output is much lower than that of general purpose, industrial or commercial grade pumps. They are frequently small and compact enough to be portable and consequently are used for temporary jobs. 12 volt pumps are found on personal watercraft for water bailing purposes in case of emergency.

They are also used for camp or outdoor showers, watering gardens and pumping out a flooded basement. There are three main kinds of centrifugal pump usages: chemical, water and trash. Because of their size and energy, 12 volt pumps are generally not designed to pump the solids and debris usually found in waste water. Depending on the construction, however, some 12 volt pumps may be used to transfer small batches of liquid chemicals.

Centrifugal pumps are basic machines with few parts. The central component is an impeller which is very similar to a propeller except that the blades are not as sharp and they create suction instead of propulsion. The impeller is kept in a volute, or casing, and is mounted on a rotating shaft that connects to the motor.

As mechanical energy powers the shaft, the impeller turns as well, its vanes imparting kinetic energy to the fluid which follows the expanding volute to the discharge opening. Though the speed of the liquid is reduced, the pressure increases; 12 volt pumps can transport up to 10 gallons per minute. The maximum lift is about 30 feet with small or miniature pumps offering around 5 feet of lift. The pump diameter for a 12 volt centrifugal pump is often just a few inches.

Miniature 12 volt pumps are handheld and can be dropped into a well hole or river to lift water. Some models are submersible while others are able to run dry. Accessories are available to suit the demand and include removable strainers, hose barb connections and anti-clog measures. Many of these pumps need to be primed before they are used to expel air and allow water to be drawn in by the suction.

Centrifugal Pumps

A centrifugal pump is defined as a hydraulic machine that changes mechanical energy into hydraulic energy by the use of centrifugal force acting on the fluid. This is a machine that uses rotation to enforce velocity on a liquid...

Ball Valves

Ball Valves

A ball valve is a shut-off valve that allows or obstructs the flow of liquids and gases in a piping system by rotating the ball having a bore inside the valve for 90°. The ball is mounted against two seats and has a stem that connects it to the operating and control mechanism that rotates the ball...

Check Valves

Check Valves

A check valve is a safety device designed to allow fluids and gases to flow in one direction. Under pressure, fluids enter the valve at the inlet and exit through the outlet. Uninterrupted flow continues until the pressure drops, or the pump is shut down...
