Brine transfer pumps ensure that salt water underground is removed to the surface in salt extraction method by solution mining. This process is made by a sealed pump called a submersible pump. Advantages of these pumps are to preventing problems associated with pump cavitation and a height difference between the pump and the fluid surface.
WORKING PRINCIPLE OF BRINE TRANSFER PUMP
Liquids accelerated by centrifugal propeller convert kinetic energy into pressure energy.
The pump shaft is connected to gas separator or shield by a mechanical connection at the bottom of the pump.
Fluids pass pump through an inlet screen and are lifted by pump stages.
An optional thrust bearing takes some of the resulting axial forces in the pump, but most of these forces are absorbed by the thrust bearing of the protector.
Electric submersible pumps are multistage centrifugal pumps operating in vertical position.
Fluids accelerated by propeller lose kinetic energy in a diffuser, which transforms kinetic energy into pressure energy.
