Xylem Goulds Centrifugal Pumps
For over 155 years, Xylem Goulds has combined their pump-building experience and expertise with the most advanced pump design and manufacturing processes available to deliver world-class pumps for countless applications.
Xylem Goulds’ centrifugal pumps utilize a close-coupled, space-saving design for easy installation. They’re fabricated from high quality 304 stainless steel, with carbon/ceramic faces on mechanical seals, 316 stainless steel interior components, and Viton elastomer seals. The enclosed design of the impellers provides high-efficiency performance.
These centrifugal pumps are ideal for a range of uses, including water circulation, liquid transfer, spraying systems, jockey pump and booster services, and general purpose pumping. Although, it is not designed to be used for construction purposes.
To ensure superior quality and performance, Xylem Goulds conducts full performance testing on every centrifugal pump they manufacture. See individual product listings for full specifications.

- Case drain provided as standard.
- Impeller is positively locked on shaft with a key and impeller nut.
- Easy maintenance: seals can be replaced without removing the pump motor.
History & Overview of Centrifugal Pumps
A centrifugal pump transports fluids by converting rotational kinetic energy (produced by an electric motor) to the hydrodynamic energy of the fluid flow. Entering along or near the rotational axis through the “eye” of the housing, fluid is caught in the impeller blades, which accelerate the fluid and cause it to flow radially outward. Fluid velocity and pressure both increase while passing through the impeller. From there, the fluid enters a diffuser which decelerates the flow and further increases its pressure. The fluid then exits the pump.
The first example of a centrifugal pump was a simple mud lifting machine designed by the Renaissance inventor Fracesco di Giorgio Martini in 1475. The first true centrifugal pump was created in the late 17th century by French physicist and inventor Denis Papin. A more efficient version, using curved instead of straight vanes, was developed in 1851 by British inventor John Appold.
Centrifugal pumps are essentially the opposite of water turbines, which convert the potential energy of water pressure into mechanical rotational energy.
