Side Channel Pumps Introduction

  • Side channel pumps, also known as liquid ring pumps, are a niche product in-between a centrifugal pump and a positive displacement pump. Side channel pumps possess characteristics of both centrifugal pumps and positive displacement pumps. The key motive behind the development of the side channel pump is to pump gas, air, and liquid mixtures.
  • A side channel pump comprises one or more star-shaped impeller assemblies. The star impellers are similar to those that are employed in centrifugal pumps. The close tolerances between the impellers and casing are similar to that of positive displacement pump designs.
  • Side channel pumps require very low suction head (NPSH), possess automatic self-priming capability, gas handling capability, and the ability to transport gas without damaging the bearings or interrupting the fluid flow due to dry running.
  • These pumps are primarily designed for heavy-duty industrial applications such as CO2 transfers, solvent transfer, acids and alkalis, distillates, refrigerants, liquefied gases, boiler feed water, and transformer oil filtration.
  • The global side channel pumps market is projected to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period, owing to increased demand for side channel pumps in different industries such as chemical, food & beverage, and oil & gas.

Side Channel Pumps Dynamics

Key Drivers of Side Channel Pumps Market

  • Rise in demand for side channel pump from heavy-duty industrial applications, such as CO2 transfers, solvent transfer, acids and alkalis, and condensates. This, in turn, is expected to propel the demand for side channel pumps in the next few years.
  • Side channel pumps are primarily used in the chemical industry due to their ability to handle liquid or vapor mixtures and capability of self-priming automatically. Furthermore, a rise in the number of chemical factories globally, especially in some developing countries such as India and China, is another major factor that is expected to fuel the global side channel pumps market.
  • Side channel pump is increased the uptime with low cost of ownership further anticipated to fuel the market growth from the oil and gas industry.
  • Side channel pumps also offer some benefits in terms of efficiency in applications, which require low throughputs at high differential heads. This is another key factor that is anticipated to drive the market globally.

Lack of Knowledge Hindering Side Channel Pumps Market

  • Lack of knowledge about the features of side channel pumps among consumers and rise in demand for customization are major factors that are projected to hamper the market in the next few years
