Centrifugal pumps convert mechanical energy into fluid energy and use that energy to transport fluids. They look much like snails and are categorised as turbomachinery. Fluid goes into the pump, where it contacts an impeller which moves it. The fluid then moves into the diffuser before finally exiting the pump.

Centrifugal pumps are used mostly for pumping petrochemical, sewage or water. They can also be used as water turbines by reversing them and converting the fluid energy into rotational kinetic energy. The first historical evidence of a modern centrifugal pump is in England around 1851.
