Reversed Impeller

REVERSED IMPELLER R013

Some double suction impellers can be mounted in reverse, or backwards on the shaft. If the impeller is reversed, several things can happen:

  • The pump’s capacity and efficiency will be reduced.
  • Power consumption will increase. This could overload and damage the motor.
  • The discharge head will stay about the same.
