Corken’s side channel pump is a unique self-priming pumping technology. The design of a side-channel pump is similar to a regenerative turbine pump in that the impeller makes regenerative passes through the liquid. However, the actual design of the impeller and casing, and principles of operation differ greatly. Unlike other pump designs, the side channel pump can accommodate the transfer of liquid and gas mixtures with up to 50% entraIned gas. This feature greatly reduces the possibility air or vapor locking that can occur in other pump designs. A special suction impeller lowers the NPSH requirement for the pump. We offer several models of side channel pumps for wide range of differential pressures and capacities. The SC model side channel pumps are available with mechanical seal option only. Ideal for high differential pressure applications involving LPG (propane & butane), agricultural ammonia, natural gas liquid (NGLs) and many more.
