Priming Chambers

The Single-Chamber Tank A single-chamber primer is a tank with a bottom outlet that is level with the pump suction nozzle and directly connected to it. An inlet at the top of the tank connects with the suction line (Figure 1). The size of the tank must be such that the volume contained between the top of the outlet and the bottom of the inlet is approximately three times the volume of the suction pipe. When the pump is shut down, the liquid in the suction line may leak out, but the liquid in the tank below the suction inlet cannot run back to the supply. When the pump is started, it will pump this entrapped liquid out of the priming chamber, creating a vacuum in the tank. The atmospheric pressure on the supply will force the liquid up the suction line into the priming chamber.
