A vortex pump (also called a vortex impeller) is based on the principle of creating a vortex flow with a recessed impeller that is positioned away from the path of the liquid. The pump creates a circular churning motion around an axis to create suction. The fluid flows into the volute and out through discharge. When a solid enters the pump’s inlet, it becomes entangled in the product flow and is sucked into the vortex; much like a hurricane sucks up objects. The solid exits the vortex via the discharge passage, bypassing the impeller.
