Side Channel Pumps to Fill the Hydraulic Performance Void between Positive Displacement Pumps and Centrifugal Pumps

We have partnered with side channel pump technology leader SERO to bring you the latest in specialty pump technology.

Headquartered in Germany, SERO PumpSystems is the world’s only exclusive manufacturer of side channel pumps.  Since the issuance of their first side channel pump patent in 1929, SERO has continued to revolutionize the industrial pump industry.  Specializing in individually configured pumping systems, SERO has consistently been on the leading edge of side channel pump design and technology.

Side Channel Pump Technology

Side channel designs fill the hydraulic performance void between positive displacement pumps and centrifugal pumps.  Fully open “star” impellers interact with the side channel casing creating an intense transfer of energy to the pumped liquid or liquid/gas mixture.  The corresponding pressure increase (pump head) equals 5 to 10 times the amount generated by a similar size centrifugal pump at the same RPM.  Additionally, the centrifugal effect of the impeller combined with the unique SERO internal flow patterns, allow our pumps to effectively handle fluids with gas entrainment of up to 50% and also be self-priming.  All this in one compact package!
