How does a Self-Priming Centrifugal Pump work?

How does the B-Series work?

The open impeller rotates, drawing air from the suction pipe into the pump casing. As the air mixes with the liquid in the pump casing, it draws the mixture of liquid and air through to the discharge outlet. Once all the air has been removed from the suction pipe, the pump will transfer liquid. This operating principle ensures that the pump is primed and ready to operate from start-up and does not require manual priming.
