Supplementing the main pump, the booster pump can be used to boost the discharge to longer distances. The booster pump is particularly useful for high head applications.
These pumps substantially extend the distance over which the site discharge can be moved, allowing the discharge point to be located far away from the site. Site pumps will experience an increased flow rate as booster pumps will reduce pressure around the site thus increasing the overall pumping efficiency. Booster pumps are useful for dewatering and transferring of liquids.
