Sea water or salty water pump is massively used in industries using sodium. Generally, more than 70% of the earth is covered with water. But the issue here is that this water is salty and can’t be used for home or industrial purposes. One of the main reasons making it difficult or even impossible to use salty water is the corrosive properties of salt. Salty water pump is the tool that makes it possible to use this massive and almost unspoiled resource.
The important of sea salty water pump
Modern people know well that they can’t count on underground and fresh water sources. The fact is these resources alone are not able to provide the need of human and animals to drink. Therefore, human has two ways ahead of him. He either has to completely stop the industry or find a new source. Experience and the history have shown us that human has never let go of industry. Industry is even the reason that humanity is attempting to kill one another.
Therefore, one can’t expect the humanity to stop industries solely because of the lack of fresh water. Hence, another path has to be investigated. This path will eventually lead to the massive and unspoiled but salty resources of seas! Salty water pump may be a small invention but believe that these pumps are able to move pass the humanity behind this blockage.
Challenges of sea salty water pump
As stated earlier, the most important issue about salty water pumps is the corrosivity of salt or sodium. As you may know, salt belongs to the acidic type of materials. Although salt is a weak acidic material, however, it still has a corrosiveness property and is able to destroy metal or other materials through time. As a consequence, we need a special type of industrial pumps.
But this is not the only challenge of salty water floating electro pump. In easier words, the sea water may bring more problems upon pump than its corrosiveness property. The most important issues of the sea water are as follows:
- Existence of different types of objects in the sea which may often have considerable size that may cause the motor or pump motor or impeller to fail.
- Occasional turbulences of the sea, which sometimes become very intense. These strong shocks are enough to make any pump fail.
- Temperature deviation is another challenge of free waters. In fact, the temperature distance in short time duration available in salty and free waters can easily even affect steel.
Therefore, apart from corrosiveness, different challenges exist for salty water pumps. However, corrosiveness is of the greatest challenges. This is due to the fact that all other challenges can be covered. In fact, using different cages can control external objects. Using strong foundations keeps the pump stable during turbulences. But corrosiveness cannot be easily solved. Therefore, the design of most salty water pumps are based on this issue. The following explains more about these issues.
Different types of salty water pumps
Salty water pumps, similar to industrial pumps, divide into several categories. We will investigate 4 of these categories.
Carbon steel salt water pumps
The steel alloy with carbon base is called carbon steel. This type of pumps have good corrosion resistance and is more affordable due to design and production method. But an issue exists here and it’s that using this type is not suggested in sea turbulences and free salty waters.
High chrome salt water pumps
As can be figured out by its name, chrome with a high percentage of purity is used in its steel alloy. This type of alloy is robust against not only sodium but also other weak or half-strong acids. In other words, it’s not just salt that’s the corrosive factor in sea water! This pump is suitable for use in different seas and salty free water.
Nickel chrome pumps
This type of salt water pump is made of steel alloy with nickel and chrome base. This type of alloy combination actually holds strong resistance against corrosiveness along with resistance against shocks and turbulences. In fact, these pumps are highly robust and many countries, including UAE, use these pumps for their salty water purification.
304 alloy pumps
This alloy is produced economically and optimally. In easier words, 304 alloy is a combination of carbon, chrome, nickel, and steel with specific percentages. Aside having great robustness against corrosiveness, this combination, is robust against different shocks and turbulences. But it’s not expected of them to behave similar to nickel chrome.
