Impellers are vital for the functionality of many objects, or are the perfect option for helping you pump liquids. At Bormill Inc., we take our vast, professional knowledge and combine it with state of the art impellers to cater the industrial milling industry. We have over 10,000 square feet of manufacturing space, and an overhead crane lift capacity is 12 tons.
Impellers are rotors that work to increase or decrease the amount of pressure or flow of a given liquid. Impellers can be made with a variety of materials, including iron, steel, bronze, brass and more. In the case that it is crafted out of cast material, however, it is usually referred to as just a rotor.
Impellers are the rotating part of a centrifugal pump, and are used in things such as agitated tanks, waterjets, washing machines and more. They work by creating enough pressure to accelerate a fluid outwards and away from the centre of rotation.
Impellers are very similar to propellers, and the two are often used interchangeably. However, the two are actually used for different purposes. Propellers, on one hand, are usually used to move an object like a ship forward, where impellers are used to move a substance, like water or gas.
