Self-priming pumps and auto-prime pumps, are a type of centrifugal pumps, but are made with an external casing that primes an inner pump or volute by flooding it with the same liquid that must be pumped. This type of pump is recommended when pumping a large volume of water, industrial wastewater, and raw sewage. Self-priming pumps can provide the safest, most cost-effective pumping solution for larger liquid volumes.

Benefits of Self-Priming pumps

Apart from it being cost-effective, self-prime pumps like those made by Toolkwip are very safe to use. As they are mounted at ground level above the liquid to be pumped, no hoists or cranes are needed to lower and submerge this type of pump, affording safer and easier access. A Self-priming water pump or self-priming pump for other liquids, is easier to operate, set up, repair and maintain.

First, choose the pump specially designed for pumping the specified liquid. Next, choose the pump with the appropriate head and flow size. The Net Positive Suction Head (NPSH) for the liquid must then be calculated. You can choose the right Self-Priming pump that suits your application best from our range:
